Is your health center equipped to respond to a data breach? A well designed Data Breach Coverage insurance policy provides the financial, technical, and operational support needed to comply with state and federal laws in addition to protecting your hard earned reputation.
Data Breach vs. Cyber Liability
In the healthcare industry, many breaches of protected personal information occur offline. For example, inadvertently throwing protected medical records into the trash instead of shredding them is considered a data breach. This offline breach is typically excluded form a "Cyber Liability" policy. However, a well designed Data Breach policy will provide protection for a breach of data in any medium - paper or digital.
Responding to a Breach
One of the main benefits of a Data Breach policy is the phone number that you can call when a breach occurs. The insurance company partners with experts to provide you with the knowledge and tools that you need to properly respond to a breach. These benefits might include:
Explanation of your responsibilities under local, state, and federal laws
Public relations support to protect your reputation
Legal defense when you face administrative action from the government
