Is BOP Coverage Triggered by Ransomware Attack?
The US District Court for the District of MD discusses whether a businessowners policy should cover losses from ransomware attack.

The case is National Ink & Stitch, LLC v. State Auto Property & Casualty Insurance Co. No. SAG-18-2138, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 11411 (D. Md. Jan. 23, 2020)
