Mansions and Sontiq partner to provide comprehensive personal cyber protection insurance

Mansions of Australia (Mansions) and Sontiq, a leader in Intelligent Identity Security, announced a new partnership to provide cyber insurance protection through Sontiq’s Cyberscout as part of Mansions Executive Insurance offering.

The offering known as Family CyberSecure provides Mansions clients with comprehensive cyber cover for families and individuals who have been exposed to a range of cyber events from cyberbullying to identity fraud.

David McMurdo, Chief Underwriting Officer of Personal Lines, Steadfast Underwriting Agencies, said: “The acceleration and modernisation of technology allows us to do some pretty amazing things. However, the luxuries and convenience technology offer can sometimes come at a cost, namely the risks to people’s data, information and privacy.

"When incidents do happen, victims spend time and energy on trying to recover from the damage caused, with most not having personal cyber protection in place.

“In response to this, we’re pleased to have partnered with Sontiq to help successful families and individuals that purchase the Mansions Executive Insurance product to better defend themselves and avoid becoming an easy target from cyber fraud in the first place”.

“Sontiq’s Cyberscout provides 24/7 access to digital fraud experts who can provide proactive advice and incident remediation in response to incidents. Furthermore, clients will be able to access a wide range of tools such as data backup software plus an online knowledge portal to be more informed around cyber safety.

“As insurance evolves for the digital era,” said Matt Cullina, Sontiq Head of Global Insurance Business, “we’re excited to partner with Mansions to provide individuals and families with comprehensive cyber fraud protection and remediation”.

The Mansions Executive Insurance offering is available through the Australian broking market from 5 October 2021.
