  • Repair: Fix/replace infected devices and restoring lost or stolen digital content;
  • Reimbursement: Financial support for customers affected by cyber extortion.

Chubb’s Personal Cyber Insurance will be available only through Chubb partner businesses such as Financial Institutions, Retailers, Employee Benefits, Payment Providers or Mobile Network Operators.

Chubb has a long history of providing white label and branded solutions for some of the world’s leading brands.

Chubb’s Personal Cyber Insurance brings together that knowledge and those insights to help individuals to safeguard themselves and their families online. We all enjoy so many benefits from living in a digitally-driven age, but the internet can also be a haven for criminals and bullies whose actions can often have a devastating impact on their victims. Chubb’s Personal Cyber Insurance helps customers and their families be safer and also offers protection and practical solutions if they are targeted.” – Executive Vice President, Specialty Personal Lines International, Chubb, Chris Eappariello.
