Beazley Selected By Premier Healthcare Alliance As Preferred Cyber Liability Insurer

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Beazley, a leading insurer of data privacy and network security risks, has been selected as the preferred cyber liability insurer for Premier's healthcare alliance which serves more than 2,700 US hospitals and 90,000 healthcare sites. Premier's subsidiary, Premier Insurance Management Services, Inc. (PIMS), will offer Beazley's flagship product, Beazley Breach Response.

Beazley Breach Response is a complete privacy breach response management and information security insurance solution which includes coverage for breaches affecting up to 5,000,000 individuals, including notification and credit monitoring.  The product is tailored to the needs of healthcare organizations as well as higher education, retail, and hospitality businesses. 

Mike Donovan, head of Beazley's Technology, Media and Business Services team, said: "The digitization of patient records has allowed hospitals to gain tremendous efficiencies, but has increased their risk of suffering a data breach. Varying state laws and an overlay of federal supervision through the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) only make navigating a breach more complex.  If not handled properly, a breach involving personally identifiable data can seriously damage a hospital's reputation."

Beazley has a detailed knowledge of the professional liability and cyber liability needs of hospitals.  The company numbers among its clients a quarter of Healthgrades' top hospitals in the US and 15% of US News & World Report's best hospitals (2012 rankings).  A third of Beazley's Breach Response policies have to date been taken out by healthcare organizations.

"Data breaches can cause severe reputational and financial damage," said Tom Green, VP, Sales & Marketing at PIMS. "I'm pleased to offer our members this new cyber liability protection. It provides both the risk management tools and resources to help prevent a breach, and the necessary services should a breach occur."
