Here is everything you need to know about cyber insurance!

There are so many risks nowadays that the more insurances you have for everything you own, the better. Now, why do people get insurance? Simple! To diminish a risk and if any accidents occur due to this risk, then your insurance company has you covered. Now, not only people should be getting insurances for them such as life insurances or for their business, there is also another type of insurance I want to talk about in this article and it is called cyber risk insurance. We all own technological devices or own websites and this insurance is meant to cover all the risks relating to that. Some of these risks include hacking and viruses among other things. Remember, your private information is worth gold to someone out there, and they are willing to do just about anything to get it!

What is it?

 

Ok so, this type of insurance covers risks for two basic things. The first one is that it covers you from any damage that might result if you of your company are involved with activities of the electronic type. For example, an e-commerce company is in the type of industry where they should definitely get a cyber and privacy insurance. As they sell online, they might be at higher risk than others of credit card fraud among other things. The other risk these types of insurance covers is the one relating to the collection of data and what might happen to it. Let’s go back to the e-commerce example, since lots of selling online is involved here, customers must give out information such as their credit cards, names, address, etc. and these companies must ensure that this information does not reach a third party.

How is my private information put at risk when engaging in online activities such as e-commerce?

 

Like I mentioned before, as a buying customer, you must give private information relating to your credit cards and address and all this data is collected and stored in the company’s internal electronic network. So, the main goal of a hacker would be to ensure they manage to get inside that internal electronic network. In that way, they can retrieve that information and buy other stuff online with your credit card information. This is where a cyber and foremost insurance comes in and prevents any further damage.

What exactly is Obamacare?

If you have ever been familiar with the insurance world, then you should be familiar with what Obamacare is. I just know, at least you have heard of it. You should have since as people know, Obamacare affects insurances related to healthcare and since we cannot go about our lives without these types of insurances, then this is something you should know about. Ok so, I consider Obamacare to be very beneficial for most people as it is an act that basically makes healthcare insurance be at the reach of every American.

What is looking to be achieved with Obamacare?

 

The main reason for this act was to lower costs of Medicare. We all know that health insurance is not always affordable by everyone so, this is a great option for every US citizen to guarantee getting treating for anything that might be affecting them healthcare wise without having to go broke! Also, you should be aware of the fact that Obamacare is not the only insurance choice when it comes to healthcare out there, you can also choose to go for foremost insurance.

Ok so, what are the benefits I get with this type of health insurance?

Well, not only is this insurance improving the way you get treated for any healthcare related issues but also, it is improving overall healthcare insurances. Some of the ways it does this is by ensuring that any and all of the health insurance plans available out there provide at LEAST 10 benefits to health. This means that no less than ten benefits can be offered by all health insurances which according to my standards, can only benefit you, right?

Another thing is that, you know how some insurance exclude conditions that are preexisting? Well, this does not happen with Obamacare as it also covers preexisting conditions.

Another thing, have you ever felt like your health insurance company just wants to get rich without even caring for your needs as a patient? I know I have though this at least at one point during my life. Well, thanks to the ACA, a healthcare insurance company can no longer drop you for being sick. So, even if your health insurance company does not care about your needs as a patient, they will now! Since they no longer have a choice!
