Why take out KBC CyberSecure Insurance?

Cybercrime is a constantly evolving threat that ranges from phishing fraud (via text message, e-mail, telephone or social media) to online order scams. However, regardless of how fraudsters operate, their aim is to take money from your account and/or to steal your personal data to, for instance, buy things in your name (identity fraud).

Having KBC CyberSecure Insurance protects your current accounts at  KBC against loss of money due to fraud and scams. You are also covered for financial loss due to identity theft and for psychological support if you suffer reputation damage.

What is KBC CyberSecure Insurance?

Your KBC CyberSecure Insurance covers:

  • Financial loss due to scams, fraud or identity theft (from 100 euros to 25 000 euros per claim and per calendar year). That maximum figure applies per calendar year and for all insured accounts combined. The deductible equals 10% of the amount paid out.
  • Psychological support after reputation damage has been suffered (up to five two-hour sessions).

Which accounts do you want to protect?

Examples of scams and fraud

Online bookings
You book a holiday home in Italy online for the whole family, but when you arrive you discover that the property doesn’t exist and the scammer has run off with your money.

Online purchases
You see a heavily discounted 4K television for sale, which you hurriedly buy online (the payment comes straight off your account) but the TV is never delivered as the online shop turns out to be fake.

Fake e-mails
You receive an urgent e-mail from ‘your energy supplier’ reminding you to pay your bill using a link in the message. If you don’t pay, they’ll shut off your electricity power right away. You later find out that the e-mail wasn’t from your energy supplier at all, but from scammers who tricked you into making immediate payment before making off with your money.

WhatsApp fraud
You receive a message from an unfamiliar number. Apparently it’s been sent by a family member who says he’s lost his mobile phone but has an urgent payment to make and is asking you to pay for him. He promises to pay you back right away. After payment, however, you hear nothing more from him. The message didn’t come from a relative but from a fraudster.

The complete list of cover provided and exclusions can be found in the general conditions.
