Any Organization In 2023 Is At Risk

Most Are Just Too Small To Make The News

Real Event #1: Pool Builder

It Started With An Email Hack

One of the company's salespersons went through a serious email hack. The attackers watched this person's account for a long while. Sadly, this happened right when the CFO was about to go on vacation, which was a good time for the hackers to initiate an attack.

These cybercriminals pretended to be from the company and talked to multiple clients. They used the rules in the contracts, which said if they had a chance to start earlier, they would call the clients. They tricked the clients and asked them to quickly send money for projects. They requested the remaining balance be bank wired within 3 days in order to start the work sooner.

Losses Added Up Quick

Unfortunately, most of the clients (8 out of 10) who were talked to by the hackers did what the hackers asked. Shockingly, one person even wired $90,000! The scam came to light when a client called to say they needed to delay their project by a week because of some problems in their backyard. But the strange thing was that the company hadn't made any such call, and their project was actually scheduled for six weeks later. This made the office staff confused.

Realizing how serious this was, the company's representatives quickly reached out to all the clients. They wanted to check if anyone got a call from the company offering to start their project early. They talked to a total of 93 clients and found out that the hackers had taken $700,000 from them in less than 3 days.

The clients who were tricked said that the person pretending to be from the company spoke perfect English and was very polite and friendly during the conversation.

Hard Decisions To Save Reputation

As a token of their genuine commitment to their client's satisfaction, they decided to take full responsibility. Clients impacted by the scam received their completed projects, but it cost the pool builder a hefty price.

Real Event #2: Contractor

Owner Was Ready For Retirement...

With retirement on the horizon, the unexpected breach happened. An unknown party got into the company's bank account and transferred the money. The business uses QuickBooks Online to manage their money and they do everything right, like changing their passwords often. They usually keep only a little money in the bank account they use to pay bills and workers, except when they need more.

Things got worse when QuickBooks called, saying there wasn't enough money in the bill pay account, and they owed $17,000. The owner found out that they fell victim to a cyberattack. Despite best efforts, QuickBooks couldn't stop the payments. QuickBooks even said they may take legal action if they didn't fund the account quickly.

Things Went From Bad To Worse

So, the company decided to get legal help to understand what to do after this problem. But that cost them $5,000. They initiated incident response and forensics with a security operations center. To investigate the breach, recover data, and fortify defenses was very important, but cost $10,000.

They also worked with a group called Experian to handle the rules and laws about the hack, but that cost a lot too – $110,000!

And because of the money taken from their account, the company lost $17,000. So, in total, the company had to spend at least $125,000 to fix everything.

Costs To Begin Solving The Problem

When they tallied all the things they needed to do to start solving the problem, the company found out they had a huge amount of money to pay – $132,000.

Real Event #3: Solopreneur

Bank Transfer Initiated

Surprisingly, hackers got into the victim's Google account even though Google was supposed to keep it safe. These bad actors then found a way to get into his bank account and initiated a $75,000 transfer to another bank account. Thankfully, the money didn't actually leave the account, but for many weeks he was struggling to regain bank account access.

The Hack Started 3 Months Prior

This trouble started about 3 months prior when the victim's private Gmail account was taken over by these hackers. Even after getting the account back, a record of what happened showed that the victim's private information was downloaded.

The bad guys didn't stop there - they also tried to get into the victim's Smart TV, Amazon account, Netflix, and their Apple ID. Even the password on their MacBook computer didn't work anymore. This raised concerns about possible back door Malware on his iPhone or MacBook.

Google Was Very Slow To Assist

The worst part is that when the victim asked for help from Google, it took a really long time, 3 days in fact, for them to do something about the problem. This slow response might have let the hackers to begin the money transfer without anyone stopping them.

Due to the lack of insurance coverage, the victim personally covered the expenses for remediation, which can typically take 20-60 hrs at a rate of $500/hr.
