The case could be settled at some point—or it could drag on for years before going to trial. In 2018 the U.S. charged a North Korean hacker for crimes stemming from this and the WannaCry hacks. Later in life, Stransky, who studied mathematics and atmospheric science at MIT, went to work helping insurers model their exposure to the next Andrew or Iniki. Petty criminals, to cite one example, regularly use ransomware to lock up patient data in dentists’ offices in capers that bring in a few thousand dollars. Lloyd’s said in July that certain policies must state more clearly whether cyberattacks are covered. Explore how with our latest thinking. Maersk cyber attack sharpens regulatory focus. Insurers such as AIG or the underwriters governed by Lloyd’s are now tightening the language around what events they’ll cover. Sales, manufacturing, and research units were all hit. Without a doubt, the recent cyber-attack unraveled key vulnerabilities and plausible negligence given Maersk’s position as the world biggest shipping line and also, operator of 76 ports via its APM Terminals division.

The industry is working to write its policy exclusions in such a way as to avoid any confusion over whether a digital attack is covered or not. And it’s almost impossible to predict what a Russia or an Iran might do based on its past actions. Even so, Philip Silverberg, a lead lawyer for the insurers, wrote to Judge Mega on Sept. 11, “The insurers are confident that there is evidence to demonstrate attribution of NotPetya to the Russian military.”, To get it, the insurers will lean on the work of computer forensic experts who’ve analyzed NotPetya and may be able to testify that it bears the hallmarks of a Russian military operation.
