The Cybersecurity Newsletter — March 2022

Let’s Get Digital, Digital

The online world is in absolute shambles right now. Global governments are hitting businesses with cyberattacks, Will Smith just slapped Chris Rock on live TV, teenagers are hacking Microsoft, oh and, of course, the MetaVerse.

So, for the March 2022 edition of the Embroker Cybersecurity Newsletter, we’re diving into cyberspace to figure out exactly what’s going on, and give you some interesting insights and key takeaways to help your organization navigate.

Oh, and NFTs, too. Are they still a thing?

Let’s get into it.

The Lizard King also known as Mark Zuckerberg may be flying a little too close to the sun for businesses in his new Metaverse. Essentially Habbo Hotel for adults, the MetaVerse promised a revolutionary social platform built to optimize remote communication, collaboration, and coworking.

Though the 1% of consumers have flooded to purchase real estate in the Matrix with a makeover, businesses are wary, citing cybersecurity and digital manipulation concerns such as social engineering through deep fakes.

As the digital world feels seemingly less secure with each passing tweet, are platforms like the MetaVerse creating more unnecessary doors for bad actors to waltz through?

Put your dancing shoes on.

Hollywood has found the dark side of Silicon Valley. Theranos, WeWork, and Uber have found themselves (and their dirty laundry) streaming across Hulu, AppleTV+, and ShowTime.

For the general audience, the fall of some of the country’s most powerful businesspeople is must-watch TV. For the business community, especially founders, they’re the cautionary tales of failed-startups past.

But, they all also have one thing in common: these disasters are insurable. D&O, EPLI, Tech E&O, all of it.
