The internet can be a dangerous place, whether for conducting business or personal financial transactions. As per studies, online banking frauds are a thriving 230-crore business between 2013 – 2016 and it continues to increase*. Yet in the digital age, we are forced to rely on the internet more than we would like, given the convenience it offers. Right from shopping to banking and paying bills, the quantum of financial transactions conducted online has increased exponentially over the past decade.  We share our private information and crucial financial data with banks and online businesses and do our best to secure our data, protect our identities. And then hope that the next massive data breach won’t affect us or the firms with whom we have entrusted our valued personal or financial information.

The digital world is rife with cybercrimes like phishing and all kinds of malware including ransomware and brute-force botnets. With the advancement of technology, the Cybercriminals are only getting smarter and already beginning to use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to effectively target individuals and business. Hence, no matter how many anti-virus software or firewalls you install, there’s no guarantee that any of your data is 100 per cent safe. Hence, in order to cover potential losses due to cyber risks, getting Cyber Insurance or Digital Insurance is important. There are plenty of benefits to buying a Cyber Insurance Policy.
