2021 is the year for Healthcare providers to review their cyber coverage.

2020 saw the first case of a hospital patient death linked to a cyber attack when computer systems were disabled at Dusseldorf University Hospital in Germany. In October, the FBI warned of an increase in ransomware attacks threatening the US healthcare system, raising concerns that healthcare providers and patients are at serious risk of harm.

This incident is a sad reminder of how important it is for Healthcare providers to be kept be up to date with the cyber insurance coverages that are available to them.
