Cyber Event Insurance

What would you do if your patient’s medical records were hacked and you were required to pay a ransom -otherwise they would be shared with the public? The threat of cyber-attacks is a growing concern for businesses, and medical practices are not exempt. In response to this emerging threat, insurers have developed cyber event products that can offer valuable protection. Many businesses don’t have this cover but should consider it.
