Personal Coverage Highlight - Cyber Liability
Smart homes are a staple in today’s society. Who doesn’t love the convenience that comes with a smart home? You can control almost everything in your home via Wi-Fi such as your blinds, TV, oven, and garage opener. But did you know that because these items are connected they can also serve as a point of access for a hacker?
As these new threats emerge it is important you know what coverage is available. Acuity is now offering an Identity Theft and Cyber Protection enhancement to their personal insurance clients. This cyber endorsement helps protect from financial loss caused by an identity fraud or cyber-related event, including:
