Cyber insurance partnership: Westland and BOXX addressing digital threats

11/11/2023 News

Westland Insurance, a Canadian independent insurance broker, has partnered with BOXX Insurance, a global insurtech, to introduce a comprehensive cyber insurance product. With the increasing prevalence of cybercrime and its severe financial consequences, this collaboration aims to offer individuals and families the protection they require in the digital age.

Canadian households are more susceptible to cybercrime than house fires, recent statistics show. Scammers and hackers target individuals of all ages. Just as we secure our physical homes with locks and insurance, safeguarding our online presence is vital. Westland acknowledges this need and is dedicated to delivering cyber coverage that ensures clients' peace of mind.

Donna Barclay, EVP Commercial and Specialty at Westland Insurance, noted that consumers seek straightforward and affordable solutions to protect themselves and their families online. Business clients also express a significant demand for this product to protect their employees from online attacks.

The Cyberboxx policy encompasses a range of cyber tools for threat prevention and comprehensive insurance coverage, including data breach insurance, identity theft, cyber-attacks, and more. It covers all personal devices and software to ensure individuals have the necessary digital protection.

One standout feature of this product is its worldwide coverage, crucial for Canadians traveling overseas. BOXX also offers access to BOXX Hackbuster experts for live assistance in digital emergencies, providing peace of mind.

Westland has streamlined the process for clients to purchase BOXX cyber insurance online or in-branch.

In today's digital landscape, the need for cyber insurance has never been more pressing. Westland is committed to bridging the personal cyber gap and providing clients with the peace of mind they deserve.
