More Canadians are falling victim to cybercrime than ever before. 

Did you know?

  • A Statistics Canada report on online habits of Canadians in the first 6 months of the pandemic revealed that 42% experienced a form of cyber security incident and 34% of them were victims of phishing attacks.
  • According to the 2021 Norton Cyber Safety Insights Report, nearly 330 million people in 10 countries were victims of cybercrime.

4 Most Common Types of Cyber Attacks

Personal cyber insurance covers expenses and financial losses resulting from cyber attacks, which can include:

Costs to repair, replace or restore home or personal devices or systems

Financial consequences of personal online attacks (i.e. lost salary up to the policy limits in the event that cyberbullying leads to the wrongful loss of a job)

Ransom paid to online criminals threatening the release of sensitive personal data or preventing individuals' access to their devices (may also cover investigation costs for determining the cause and preventing similar incidents in the future)

Financial loss from fraud including identity theft, stolen bank funds, fraudulent use of credit cards or online scams (traditional standalone ID theft policies or endorsements may not cover this wide breadth of risks)
