Have you ever heard of a phishing attack?
According to IT Governance, the official definition of a phishing attack is a type of social engineering attack in which cyber criminals trick victims into handing over sensitive information or installing malware. This can happen through malicious emails that appear to be from trusted senders or through hacking your hard drive.
Recently, Kosciusko County suffered a phishing attack which has spurred the question, “is this considered a covered claim?”
On a general liability policy, unfortunately, a cyber or phishing attack would not be covered. A separate cyber liability policy is necessary if you are wanting to protect yourself from phishing scams and cyberattacks. Within a cyber liability policy, typically there is a line item in the contract for fraud wire transfer funds which would cover you in the case of a phishing attack.
According to Norton, one of the leading cyber security programs, there are more than 2,200 cyberattacks per day. It’s becoming increasingly effortless for scammers to hack hard drives and steal personal and financial information.
