A Fall Tradition: the IICF’s Week of Giving

Each October we enjoy the opportunity to give back with our industry colleagues during the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation’s (IICF) Week of Giving (WoG). This year, members of our Boston and Canton offices prepared meals at the Pine Street Inn alongside local Guy Carpenter employees. At our Denver office, employees held a food drive to benefit the Denver Rescue Mission. Read more about our WoG activities on our Way to Give blog, and learn more about this annual event on the IICF’s website.

How many warnings have you seen about clicking on unfamiliar links or confirming email addresses to be sure it’s a known and trusted source? Typically the goal is avoiding a computer virus, but you also need to be aware of digital pirates eager to seize computer files in exchange for a ransom fee. Sound far-fetched? Hardly; ransomware has been around since 1989 and has become more widespread in recent years. These digital pirates are becoming cleverer, making avoiding these intrusions an important defensive concern.

We’re pleased to share our most recent whitepaper titled “Minimizing the Impact of Ransomware” authored by VP & Senior InfoTech Product Manager Joe Budzyn. As you’ll read, Joe defines ransomware, how it typically appears and steps for mitigating such an attack.
