Cyber Insurance

New: Specialty Risk Protector - one policy for seamless specialty professional liability and cyber coverage.

Why choose AIG for Cyber Insurance?

In 1999, AIG launched one of the industry’s first cyber security insurance protection programs. We’ve been helping clients navigate this rapidly growing area of risk ever since through detailed scoring and analytics, and insights gathered from 20+ years of experience.

With data now one of the most valuable (and vulnerable) assets an organization can hold, we help our clients understand the nuances of cyber threats, how those threats might evolve, and how to mitigate their risk of a security breach. If an attack occurs, we have solutions that protect against litigation, reputation loss, and remediation.

Coverage (PDF) for physical and non-physical losses resulting from a cyber event on a primary (CyberEdge® or CyberEdge® Plus) or excess/difference-in-conditions (CyberEdge PC®) basis. 

Available limits up to $100M (varying by coverage) and no minimum retention. 

Terms, including limits, retentions, and coinsurance depend on a client’s perceived level of exposure and maturity of cybersecurity and privacy controls, and are based on responses provided in the AIG Cyber Insurance Application (PDF).

Broad appetite across industries, entity types, revenue sizes and geographies.

Eligible policies include cybersecurity services valued at up to $25,000.

Advantages in Action


AIG’s cyber underwriting process for a healthcare and life sciences client resulted in an “average” rating of the client’s ransomware protection. The client sought expert guidance on improving their risk profile.


With the support of AIG’s Cyber Risk Advisors and the services included with their policy, the client decreased vulnerability to an attack on their systems.

AIG Benefit

The client saved up to $25,000 in consultancy services by using AIG’s Cyber Risk Advisors and the services included with their policy. With better controls implemented, they improved their ransomware protection to “best in class,” allowing for more tailored policy terms and conditions.


AIG identified known malware in a higher education client’s library network and quickly notified them of the vulnerability.


Working with AIG’s team, the client’s CISO isolated the infected systems, began remediation steps, and retained third-party forensic services to help with the investigation.

AIG Benefit

AIG provided the CISO with their first notification from an insurer about a cyber vulnerability. The CISO appreciated AIG’s actionable information calling it “a feather in AIG’s cap” and a “valuable part of what cyber insurance is going forward.”


A successful phishing attack left a client’s computer network infected with ransomware. Several servers were encrypted, and the threat actor demanded $200K in bitcoin for a decryption key.


Working with AIG’s claims experts and partners, it was quickly determined that infected files could be restored from system backups. No formal notifications were necessary.

AIG Benefit

AIG’s cyber claims team and our relationships with specialized legal and forensic firms helped support and facilitate the client’s response to the event and return them to full operations. No ransom was paid, and the client’s legal and forensic work was covered by the CyberEdge policy.

Sample Client Cyber Maturity Report

What is Cyber Insurance?

Even with the most up-to-date security measures in place, cyber-attacks can happen. A cyber-attack (sometimes called a “data breach”) can expose and leverage sensitive information – like passwords, social security numbers, and proprietary work. This makes data one of the most valuable (and vulnerable) assets an organization can hold.

Cyber insurance helps companies assess and mitigate their risk of a security breach and protect against litigation and reputation loss if an attack occurs. 

These policies may also help with other aspects of cyber incidents:

  • Notification to those affected
  • Restoration of information
  • Data recovery
  • Repairs to your company’s computer systems
  • Forensic investigations
  • Ransom reimbursement

The scenarios described herein are offered only as examples. Coverage depends on the actual facts of each case and the terms, conditions and exclusions of each individual policy. Anyone interested in the above product(s) should request a copy of the standard form of policy for a description of the scope and limitations of coverage.
