NFP Launches DigitalShield, a New Way for Individuals to Manage Cybersecurity Risk

Proprietary offering provides a custom designed cybersecurity coverage solution

New York, NY (Mar. 9, 2021) – NFP, a leading insurance broker and consultant that provides property and casualty (P&C), corporate benefits, retirement and individual solutions, today announced the launch of a new personal cybersecurity product, DigitalShield, to address the growing need for personalized cybersecurity offerings. Through a partnership with CyberScout, an industry-leading claims management provider specializing in cybersecurity, DigitalShield users have access to 24/7 support through a variety of cyber scenarios.

DigitalShield, a proprietary cybersecurity coverage offering, is designed to provide protection for a variety of cyber vulnerabilities that individuals face. The first of its kind, DigitalShield provides a package of coverage across eight cyber concerns: cyberattacks, ransomware, identity theft, cybercrime, smart devices and wearables, cyber bullying, reputation coverage, and cyberstalking. DigitalShield provides coverages from $100,000 to $1 million to help clients manage the impact of a cybersecurity event. Individuals now have an option for proactively mitigating risk with comprehensive coverage and around-the-clock customer support.

DigitalShield is now available to individuals in Canada. Individuals in the US will have access to DigitalShield later in 2021.

“We’re excited to offer DigitalShield to our clients and help them address an increasingly urgent issue,” said Brian Timmis, managing director of NFP’s Private Client Group in Canada. “As online threats and data breaches continue to rise, protecting our clients from cyberattacks has become a top priority.
