Why AIG

End-to-End Care

Issue: AIG identified known malware in a Higher Education client’s library network and quickly notified them of the vulnerability.

Solution: Working with AIG’s team, the client's CISO isolated the infected systems, began remediation steps, and retained third-party forensic services to help with the investigation.

Benefit: AIG provided the CISO with their first notification from an insurer about a cyber vulnerability. The CISO appreciated AIG's actionable information calling it “a feather in AIG’s cap” and a “valuable part of what cyber insurance is going forward.”

Claims Expertise

Issue: A successful phishing attack left a client’s computer network infected with ransomware. Several servers were encrypted and the threat actor demanded $200K in bitcoin for a decryption key.

Solution: Working with AIG’s claims experts and partners, it was quickly determined that infected files could be restored from system backups. No formal notifications were necessary.

Benefit: AIG’s cyber claims team and our relationships with specialized legal and forensic firms helped support and facilitate the client’s response to the event and return them to full operations. No ransom was paid, and the client’s legal and forensic work was covered by the CyberEdge policy.

Why is this important?

AIG helps clients with specific, trusted expertise when an incident occurs.
