About Cyber Risks Insurance

Product Overview

Cyber threats can have serious consequences. Risks range from loss of information on a single laptop to threats posed by cloud computing. Businesses may also face issues regarding denial of service or defacement and disruption to their web presence. 

Data leaks and data losses can lead to regulatory fines and PR nightmares. Cyber attacks could lead to server shut-downs, loss of confidence or loss of profits. When private information is compromised, the repercussions for a business can be serious and costly. 

AIG has developed Cyber Risks Insurance – an innovative protection package designed to counter some of the potentially far-reaching consequences of sensitive data leaks and breaches, computer hacking, dumpster diving (theft of discarded records), computer virus, employee sabotage, pilferage of information and identity theft. From crisis management to legal investigations to restore a reputation, our experienced team can help you manage a breach. 

In partnership with GROUP IB, a computer security company, CMS and Seneshal Neyman law firms, and CROS and GRAYLING, anti-crisis PR professional consultants, AIG can offer a suite of value-added services in addition to insurance protection.
