Why enroll in Cyber Protection Coverage?

We live in a connected but highly vulnerable world. We rely on home security cameras, smart appliances, and online shopping each day. However, these systems can allow cyber attackers to infiltrate the home, steal information and identities, extort money, commit fraud, and disrupt lives. Safeco's Cyber Protection coverage is a suite of innovative cyber coverages and services designed to protect today's families from cyber threats.

Here's what cyber protection coverage includes:
  • Online Fraud — The direct financial loss as the result of a fraud event involving a computing or connected home device including but not limited to identity theft, unauthorized use of a card, card number, or account number in an insured's name, or forgery of a check.
  • Cyber Attack
    • Data Recovery Costs: Cost of a professional firm hired to replace electronic data that has been lost or corrupted.
    • System Restoration Costs: Cost of a professional firm to restore the computing or connected home device to its level of functionality before the cyber-attack. This includes the replacement or reinstallation of software programs, removal of malicious code and the reconfiguration of the device or system.
  • Cyber Extortion
    • Professional assistance from a subject matter expert for advice and consultation on how to best respond to a threat.
    • Cyber extortion response costs: Payment as directed to the extortion threat when payment is approved in advance and incurred as the direct result of a cyber extortion event.
