Coverage Highlights

Cyber Coverage 360© provides both first and third-party coverage that’s triggered when an insured discovers an attack on an owned or leased computer.

A computer hack may be:

  • A hacking event or other instance of someone illegally gaining access.
  • An attack by a virus or other malware.
  • A denial-of-service attack.
Discovery of the attack must occur during the policy period. Coverage does not apply to breaches that occur prior to the first inception of the coverage.

Coverage for computer attacks includes:

  • Data restoration costs
  • System restoration costs

Coverage for Cyber Extortion

Coverage for cyber extortion incidents includes the cost of hiring a professional firm – i.e., coverage for a firm hired by the insured to investigate and negotiate a cyber extortion threat, which is deemed a credible threat, or series of threats to launch a potential denial-of-service attack.
