What is cyber insurance?

As a healthcare provider, the welfare of your patients is your utmost priority. Unfortunately, ePHI (electronic protected health information) is increasingly stolen by hackers. With it, they buy medical equipment and drugs to resell, they create falsified claims and defraud insurance companies.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 21 million Americans have had lost or stolen medical records since 2009. A possible reason, according to Reuters is that stolen medical information is worth ten times more than stolen credit card numbers.

Health Care Professionals are turning to cyber insurance for protection. It offers to help when network security fails. Cyber insurance covers data breaches, multimedia liability—even extortion.
