Cyber Insurance: Protect Yourself From Online Deception

They only need to fool you once.

These days, especially if you’re constantly online, the chances of you being hacked are significantly high.

Why? Because, it’s inevitable. One day, your password will fail, or one of your most-loved online services will be hacked. That’s when a cyber criminal can swoop in and harvest all of your information.

What is cyber deception?

Cyber deception is when hackers manipulate and successfully take advantage of you and the personal information you share, or store, online. You might think that you are signing up for a new account, only to later find out that all you are doing is giving someone else all the information they need to steal from you. This is usually known as phishing.

Here are some tips to protect yourself from phishing:

  • Protect your computer by using security and antivirus software.
  • Always make sure your mobile phone is protected by setting software to update automatically.
  • All your accounts should have multi-factor authentication.
  • Always make sure your data is regularly backed up.

How much is cyber insurance?

Get our Cyber Insurance policy package. Your premiums start from R129 per month. Extended Cyber Insurance for your family starts from R179 per month.

What else am I covered for?

  • Cyber theft: You are covered for the loss of any personal information or money through cyber theft.
  • Cyber deception: We make sure that your pocket and devices are secured against any further cyber attacks.
  • Device restoration: By identifying the source of the attack we prevent further losses. We can also clean your device, help to restore it to its original condition, and reinstall all licensed software.
  • Antivirus Software: Get the latest software to protect you and your device.
  • IT helpline: We have IT professionals that are available to you anytime.
