How does a Cyber Liability Insurance Policy protect Florida doctors against third party claims?

The potential for committing libel or slander against someone else is greatly increased by the advent of the internet. With so much publication on the internet, there is greater than ever chance of being accused of plagiarism. Florida healthcare providers can, without knowing it, inadvertently release patient or employee information which should be kept private. Even if someone hacks into your system and does damage to a third party, you can still be held responsible because you did not take adequate precautions to prevent the hack.

A Florida Cyber Liability Insurance Policy provides defense protection and will indemnify the insured if he is sued by a third party who has suffered damages caused by any of the above situations.
