CyberEdge Cyber Liability Insurance Program
Today’s health care industry requires immediate and widespread access to growing networks of data, yet these confidential records are especially vulnerable to security lapses and breaches, and represent significant cybersecurity risk.
With increased frequency of security breaches, dissemination of protected health information (PHI) across various healthcare organizations has become commonplace. Healthcare providers are increasingly impacted by regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act). These regulations drive additional stringent demands for compliance, can carry hefty fines and penalties, and can be costly to defend in the event of legal action.
HASC members can now secure CyberEdge® cyber liability coverage from AIG, to help mitigate and manage these increasing network security and privacy-related risks. Offered through AmWINS Insurance Brokerage, an industry leading wholesale specialty insurance distributor, eligible HASC members’ insurance agents will have access to pre-negotiated cyber liability coverage and services designed specifically for HASC members.
