Cyber Deception Coverage

night-owl-man-working-on-computer-at-night-picjumbo-comThe Cyber Deception coverage extension provides coverage for the intentional misleading of the Applicant by means of a dishonest misrepresentation of a material fact contained or conveyed within an electronic or telephonic communication(s) and which is relied upon by the Applicant believing it to be genuine. This is commonly known as “spear-phishing”, CEO Fraud or “social engineering”, which is defined by Wikipedia as “psychological manipulation of people into performing actions or divulging confidential information.”  In recent years, hackers and cyber-thieves have been developing new techniques to infiltrate insureds’ bank accounts. Early phishing scams were fairly easy to spot: a request from a Nigerian prince or a link purported to take you to your bank’s customer service center were tell-tale signs of suspicious email traffic. It was recommended to never click on the link and delete the email immediately. In response to the masses becoming more aware of these red flags, thieves have countered with more sophisticated attacks.
