With an increase in the penetration of the internet in the life of a common man, the online security of an individual is compromised even more. The use of internet has brought convenience for many, but, it has also been responsible for exposing individuals to perils like cyber-attacks. While it is important to monitor all your internet activities cautiously, it is equally important to have a full-proof protection in case you become a victim of cyber-attacks.
With an aim to provide overall security and coverage to individuals, Bajaj Allianz launched India’s first Individual Cyber Insurance
policy. We at Bajaj Allianz have tried to understand the new-age risk factors and their impact on the life of a person. To make the online experience of our customers safer, we launched this Cyber Safe Insurance Policy for individuals. This is just one of the ways in which we aim to serve our customers better and embody the sentiment of ‘Caringly yours’.
Importance of Cyber Insurance
Having an insurance plan is like having a safety net, which can safeguard you in the event of any mishap. Similarly, a cyber insurance policy provides you coverage in case you suffer loss due to cyber threats.
Beneficial for individuals
Businesses and companies have been aware & careful of cyber threats because they handle sensitive information of their customers. But, cyber risks such as IT theft, cyber extortion, misuse of financial and personal information can harm individuals as well. Keeping this in mind, Bajaj Allianz’s Individual Cyber Safe Insurance policy is designed to provide coverage to a person, who is above 18 years of age.
