Before you or your employees click on any links on incoming email (from the NAIC, clients, or others…), please be sure you have basic risk management in place. Since phishing, malware, cyber extortion/ransomware, email compromise & theft of your log-in credentials, impersonation, wire fraud and invoicegraphic of email flowing through cyber space fraud is all VERY RAMPANT, you should already have:

  1. 3-Tiered Backup of Data
  2. Multifactor (2-Factor) Authentication on all web based login access (e.g. bank accounts, Office 365 email, etc)
  3. Education for all employees to not be phished (almost no email links are safe these days…)

A seemingly good email from the NAIC could easily take down your business with crippling malware. 

Please read more about today’s latest threat:

NAIC issues alert about fake emails

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) is alerting states that someone is sending out malicious emails that claim to be from NAIC and contain the NAIC and Center for Insurance Policy and Research logos. The emails are actually from a Google account and will infect a computer with malware if the recipient opens the attachment.

NAIC has received reports of agents getting these fake emails that claim to be about a falsified insurance claim. If you get a similar email or have questions, contact the NAIC Service Desk at 816-783-8500.

Let’s all be careful out there. Be sure you are safe with various layers of security (including cyber insurance as the final layer of security) and then educate your clients to do the same. The risks are simply too great not to take immediate action.
