Claims Examples for Personal Cyber Insurance

Here are a few examples of personal cyber insurance claims:

You accidentally click a bad link and ransomware is downloaded onto your computer. All of your files are encrypted and access to your computer is essentially blocked until you pay the $3000 ransom. Cyber insurance would help you navigate this situation and could cover the costs of the ransom.

You receive an invoice and pay it before realizing that it was a scam. Cyber insurance would cover the amount that was paid and help you take the right steps to correct the situation.

You collect a list of names, phone numbers, email addresses and physical addresses for an event. The data is stolen. Your cyber insurance covers the cost of properly notifying everyone on the list and related services.

Do I need personal cyber insurance coverage if I have good security on my devices?

Yes, we recommend everyone carry cyber insurance coverage. While following security and privacy best practices on all of your devices is a great start, most claims are caused by human error. We make mistakes and cybercriminals are very good at seeming legitimate. Cyber insurance is affordable coverage that can help you recover from a cyber incident.
