Cayman National Bank cyberattack

11/18/2019

The Cayman National Bank issued an official statement announcing that its Isle of Man subsidiary had been cyberattacked. This information had previously been disclosed through an explanatory note from the cybercriminal, which had been accessed by the independent non-profit Unicorn Riot.

This information indicated that the database accessed was 2.21TB in size and contained more than 1,400 private client accounts, mainly from the European Union and the Americas, and 3,800 company accounts.

The bank reported in its statement that operations in the Cayman Islands have no common systems, databases, customer information or e-mail platforms with those in the Isle of Man, and that it is working with relevant regulators and law enforcement around the world.
