Cyber Insurance

With decades of experience in cyber insurance, AIG’s cover and monitoring products help protect a business’s data and reputation.

Why Choose AIG for Cyber Insurance?

AIG has been a pioneer in cyber insurance since 1999 when we introduced one of the industry's first cyber security insurance programs. Our aim is to assist clients in navigating this rapidly expanding area of risk.

Since data is now one of the most valuable yet vulnerable assets an organisation can possess, we can help our clients understand the nuances of cyber threats, how those threats might evolve, and how to mitigate their risk of a security breach. With AIG CyberEdge®, coverage is tiered based on the client's needs.
