  • Happy New Year: Health Records Cybercrime Will Affect 1 in 3 Consumers in 2016

    In the age of electronic health records and sophisticated worldwide networks of hackers, it has never been more important to make sure your patients' data is secure. 

    IT health research group IDC Health Insights projects that one in three American consumers will be the victim of a successful cyberattack in 2016. For criminals, the spoils are high: Health care records are reportedly worth 10 times more than credit card information on the black market. 

    Fortunately, even if your practice experiences a breach, ISMIE Mutual has you covered. Your policy includes free cyber liability coverage and expanded protection is available to policyholders in search of additional peace of mind. Even small practices could be targeted by hackers, and may benefit from increasing their coverage at a low per-physician flat rate.

    To learn more, please contact ISMIE's Underwriting Division at 800-782-4767 or by email at underwriting@ismie.com.
