  • Most of us are aware of ransomware and how prolific those attacks have become. But what about cyber attacks without demands for payment, where the "currency" is simply stealth access to your network to mine for cryptocurrency? "Cryptojacking" is that latest iteration of cyber intrusion. We are pleased to share OneBeacon Technology's Tushar Nandwana's article recently published in Carrier Management titled "Cryptojacking: Where Stealth Meets Payoff."

    Cryptojacking: Where Stealth Meets Payoff - Carrier Management

    Most of us are well aware of ransomware and how prolific of an attack vector it has become. Attacks such as SamSam, WannaCry, NotPetya, Petya and others have resulted in significant economic damage to their victims, either through ransom payments or the associated downtime.

Ben - OneBeacon Specialty Property

“As an underwriter, I've been empowered to take ownership over my work and make a real contribution to our company's bottom line. And to me, that is very important. We don’t focus on growing the company for growth's sake, we focus on profitability and doing the right thing. As far as I am concerned, that makes OneBeacon a great company to work for.”

Jennifer - Corporate Legal

“I decided to work at OneBeacon for the same reasons I would refer a professional colleague to OneBeacon – I could see an opportunity to work with fun people in a flexible environment on challenging and interesting work. I also decided to work at OneBeacon because it is a dynamic and evolving company. The company is committed to expanding into new niche specialty markets, and I would like to be a part of its continued growth.”

Chris - OneBeacon Technology

“OneBeacon has a great group of people working here and that makes the work environment fun, educational, and challenging. It takes a lot of teamwork to provide the products and services that we do and the people are the most important factor in that process. If you are looking to challenge yourself, then this is definitely the place for you. The company rewards hard work, we treat our employees very well.”
