Cyber Insurance Overview

The Internet has made life easy for us. Anything we need is readily available online and can be delivered to us at our doorsteps. Increase in the use of the Internet has also lead to a rise in Internet-related frauds. Since most of your personal information is available online, it makes you vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Identity-theft and misuse of data are on the rise, and any person can fall victim to it.

In addition to this, we know that the life of most people revolves around their mobile phones. From keeping in touch with their loved ones, buying groceries, to managing their finance, most individuals prefer using their mobile device.

Securing your data from cyber-attacks is thus crucial. You can claim for the loss incurred due to the cyber-attack with a Cyber Insurance plan available on Finserv MARKETS.

Why do You Need Cyber Insurance?

Cyber insurance protects you against cyber-attacks like email spoofing, phishing, malware, identity theft, data breach, and more. Let us look at a few illustrations to understand the need for cyber insurance in today's world.

Illustration 1:

Sofia received a spoofed email in the name of her bank. The email has requested her to provide personal information like credit card number and pin details. Thinking it is her bank who is asking for more information, she responds to the mail. The intruder now has Sofia's credit card information can use the card for other fraudulent activities.

Spoofed emails sometimes even contain links offering limited-time deals, which is a link to download and install malware on your devices. So, in case you are a victim of email spoofing and want to prosecute the intruder, cyber insurance plan helps cover the expenses incurred.

Illustration 2:

Ashwin left his laptop unattended during an office event. Another person, who found the device has downloaded Ashwin’s personal information (social media passwords, bank details and pins, and more). This person is now accessing Ashwin’s social media networks to post abusive content online as Ashwin.

This is known as identity theft, and it is a severe crime. Under cyber insurance, if you are a victim of identity theft, you can claim coverage for costs related to prosecution.

Illustration 3:

During tax season, intruders send messages regarding tax issues. A common practice followed is to send fake link requesting access to your tax forms. If you happen to respond to these emails and end up sending your tax forms to the intruder, you are sharing all your personal information.

In case you fall victim to a phishing attack, a cyber insurance plan will cover all the costs related to the prosecution of the third party involved.

Illustration 4:

Many people receive a fraudulent SMS from intruders stating that their debit card is locked. A fake link will be provided to reset the pin details. Clicking the link will lead you to the intruder’s phishing site that looks similar to bank’s official website.

This way, the intruder gains access to your debit card details and can misuse the same or leak the information to others. With cyber insurance plan, you will be covered against any losses arising out of such activities.
