Home Cyber Coverage

Plymouth Rock’s Home Cyber Coverage* is a suite of services and coverages designed to protect homeowners from cyber-attacks, cyber extortion, online fraud, data breaches and cyber bullying.

Why You Need Home Cyber Coverage

Computers, mobile devices, smart TVs and social media may enhance our lives, but they also expose us to new risks. Using these connected technologies, online criminals can infiltrate a homeowner’s data in order to steal personal information, extort money and commit fraud.

Fortunately, Home Cyber Coverage can help mitigate these risks.
