Swiss Re: Personal cyber insuranceJanuary 22 2019
There is always an element of risk in all everyday online activities. But the manner in which individuals conduct themselves online can determine whether they expose them to active threats. That might relate to storing credit card details on a retailer’s website or sharing sensitive personal data via an unprotected wireless network, or nonencrypted websites.
