FACT: One in five Australian businesses suffered a cyber-crime attack in 2012.*
No longer just a problem for big business, cyber-crime affects all businesses, large and small.
Most businesses rely on email, websites and computer software to operate, all are entry points and vulnerable targets of criminal hackers. At particular risk are your practice data files containing personal information about your clients and possibly their treatment programs.
Many businesses operate under the belief that their existing insurance policies are enough to cover their data security and privacy exposures. Unfortunately, this is not the case. In fact, many traditional insurance policies are inadequate to respond to the exposures that companies face today.
How prepared is your practice for:
- Identifying theft resulting from lost or stolen financial information?
- Protecting against theft of sensitive medical information?
- Defence of a lawsuit alleging invasion of privacy?
- Hacker attack or viruses causing damage to your client database?
As cyber threats and risks multiply, it is important to review your current cover to ensure your practice is fully protected.
Dental Essentials practice insurance provides for the cost of restoring your data and hiring temporary equipment in the event you are the target of a cyber-attack.
