Personal Cyber Insurance Coverage is on the Rise
As technology has become increasingly integrated into people’s lives, the risks that sensitive personal data could be compromised, including Social Security numbers and bank and credit card information, have continued to rise. The theft of personal data can have serious financial consequences, with cybercrimes affecting individuals and costing them thousands of dollars. One way to protect yourself is through personal cyber insurance.
What is personal cyber insurance?
A personal cyber insurance policy is designed to provide financial reimbursement for the costs associated with the theft of digital information and assets up to your policy’s limits. There are many ways cyberattacks can result in monetary loss, ranging from the theft of bank account funds to payments made after extortion through an anonymous online threat.
No two personal cyber insurance policies are created equally. However, most will generally cover expenses for:
- Personal and home protection
- Financial loss from fraud
How do I get personal cyber coverage?
