Protect Yourself from Personal Cybercrime

Protect Yourself from Personal Cybercrime
Personal Cyber Crime is on the rise in Canada, and it is becoming increasingly important for individuals to protect themselves against online fraud and identity theft. The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) estimates that Canadians have lost more than $100 million to online fraud, and 1 in 5 people will fall victim to identity theft. With just a few personal details, criminals can force individuals to transfer them money, commit credit card fraud, or demand ransoms for infected laptops.

To address this growing concern, EasyInsure offers a robust personal cyber insurance policy that not only protects against the basics but also covers individuals against broader threats such as cybercrime, cyberbullying, and cyberstalking. While cyber insurance has traditionally been marketed to businesses, the increasing use of technology at home means that individuals are also targets.

EasyInsure has partnered with Lloyd’s of London and Cyberscout, a leader in cyber insurance services, to provide best-in-class coverage at competitive pricing. This partnership ensures that individuals will receive expert guidance and support if they become victims of cyber-crime.

One of the key features of EasyInsure’s personal cyber protection is Dark Web monitoring. The Dark Web is a hidden part of the Internet where cybercriminals anonymously trade illegal goods and private information that can be used for identity theft. With coverage from EasyInsure, cyber experts continuously monitor the Dark Web for individuals' personal details and notify them if potential threats are found. This allows individuals to take immediate action to protect themselves.

With EasyInsure’s personal cyber policy by Cyberscout, you’ll have 24/7 access to: 

  • Expert cyber incident management 
  • Facilitation of Ransomware payment 
  • IT forensic, third-party and data breach specialists

Personal cybercrime is a real threat in Canada, and it is essential for individuals to take steps to protect themselves. EasyInsure’s personal cyber insurance policy offers comprehensive coverage against cyber threats and includes Dark Web monitoring to ensure individuals stay one step ahead of cybercriminals. With the support of Lloyd’s of London and Cyberscout, individuals can have peace of mind knowing they are protected against the rising tide of personal cybercrime.
