You wouldn’t consider leaving your home, vehicle or valuable belongings unprotected.
But what about your private data?
In the wrong hands, your personal information can be worth just as much as your valuable assets, and just as costly to recover. Our Personal Cyber Protection goes beyond any insurance currently available to ensure you’re protected from the fallout of an unwanted cyber attack, cyber extortion, online fraud or data breach to your home computer or personal device.
Your computer or connected home device can be exposed to a nasty malware virus simply by opening an attachment from an unknown email, clicking on online ads or downloading unofficial software. If infected, you could face loss or damage to your electronic data and system – which could be costly to replace or repair. Your coverage pays to recover and restore systems affected by a cyber attack.
Despite what we may see on TV and in movies, hackers don’t just target large corporations or businesses. Ransomware viruses can affect anyone from home computers to servers that business and federal agencies use, and often threaten to damage, disable or deny you access to files on your device or systems. Your coverage ensures you won’t be out of pocket for payments and professional assistance in responding to Cyber Extortion demands.
Sometimes, it can be difficult to tell fact from fiction online. Whether it’s a believable email that appears to come from a family or friend who says they’re in need of funds, a fake contest offer or requests for donations from unfamiliar charities, scammers use a wide variety of tactics to try and gain access to your personal information. Your coverage protects you from financial loss due to criminal deception, identity theft and unauthorized use of credit cards or bank accounts.
Trying to stay organized by keeping track of addresses, phone numbers or even birthdays electronically? Basic contact information can be dangerous if the data on your computer or device falls into the wrong hands. Your coverage takes the responsibility off your shoulders in the event of loss, theft or accidental release of other people’s sensitive information that was stored on your systems.
