Cyber Insurance

Protect your practice from the devastating effects of cyber crime.

Cyber security attacks are on the rise and dental practices are a tempting target for cyber criminals. Your patients expect you to safeguard their private medical and financial data. You can keep your practice protected with CDSPI Cyber Insurance.

There is significant financial and reputational risk in losing your patients’ private financial and medical data. As a regulated profession, dentists can also face regulatory fallout because of a cyber breach. CDSPI Cyber Insurance is an indispensable tool to help you deal with the fallout of a cyberattack.

Cybersecurity encompasses a set of technologies and network interface processes, as well as business practices, designed to safeguard your practice's network, programs, computers, and data against cyber-attacks. An integral aspect of your practice's security is staff training, recognizing that the most prevalent and straightforward method for malicious actors to gain access to systems often stems from employee oversight or carelessness.

What is Cyber Insurance?

CDSPI Cyber Insurance is a comprehensive package of insurance coverages and support services designed specifically to support dental practice owners before, during, and after a cyber security incident.

Cyber Insurance is a product that enables businesses to mitigate the cost of cyber-crime activity like cyberattacks and data breaches. It protects organizations from the cost of internet-based threats affecting IT infrastructure, information governance, and information policy, which often are not covered by commercial liability policies and traditional insurance products.

Cyber Insurance covers the losses a practice may suffer because of a cyberattack. CDSPI Cyber Insurance coverage includes protection against the loss of sensitive information through a data breach after your practice has permitted or failed to stop unsanctioned user access to your network. Cyber insurance may also reimburse you for losses including business interruption, notification costs, litigation costs, regulatory fines and penalties.

FAQs

General Questions

A cyber-attack occurs when an external entity breaches your business's private network with the intent to disrupt, disable, or pilfer your company’s, employees', and patients' personal and confidential information. This illicitly obtained data may be exploited for ransom or disclosed to the public. Additionally, a cyber-attack can result in substantial reputational harm, as well as the theft of assets, identities, or financial resources.

Malware is used to disable and damage computers and networking systems.

Yes, there are several different types of cyber-attacks and criminals are getting better at finding ways to infiltrate systems all around the world. Types of attacks include: the Trojan Horse, Phishing, Unpatched Software and the most well-known of them all, Malware.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a security measure that mandates the use of more than one authentication method from distinct categories of credentials to verify a user's identity. In addition to a password, users must provide another form of authentication, such as a fingerprint or a one-time code sent to their phone, to access an account or system.

MFA acts as an additional layer of security, thwarting unauthorized access even if passwords are compromised. Businesses use multi-factor authentication to validate user identities, ensuring quick and convenient access for authorized users. It acts as a primary defense against cybercriminals and is therefore essential to be eligible for cyber insurance.

Given that user accounts are the gateways to company resources, including internet and cloud-based applications such as email, calendaring, and office tools (e.g., Microsoft Office 365), attackers often target these accounts. MFA stands out as the most effective protection against such attacks, significantly reducing unauthorized access attempts by up to 99%.

CDSPI Cyber Insurance Questions

Yes. Cyber insurance protects you even if it has been caused by an employee.

In addition to coverage for malicious cyber-attacks, this policy provides Breach Response Services to the Insured Organization because of an actual or reasonably suspected Data Breach or Security Breach.  This includes business interruption coverage and costs to recover data.

Insurers want to assess your risk of experiencing a cyber attack and satisfying these requirements demonstrate you have implemented risk management strategies. Cyber insurance policy is just one component of an overall risk mitigation strategy, not a replacement for cyber resilience.
If you contact BFL, you can speak to A Cyber Expert that will walk you through the requirements to obtain insurance, as well provide you with resources on how to ensure you meet them.
