Cyber Security: Is it Really a Matter of Life or Death?

A webinar brought to you by the National Rural Health Association and Rural Hospital Insurance of America

If you are the CEO, CFO or COO of a Rural Hospital then this webinar is for YOU!
But, it is open to all healthcare management.

On February 21, from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm join the Rural Hospital Insurance of America (RHIA) program manager in conversation with two of America's leading experts in cyber threat protection, prevention, detection, and response to learn how to stay ahead of the growing and evolving threat cybercrime poses to your patients, your patients' data, your hospital, and yourself.

Learning objectives include:

  • The common myths that attract cyber risk
  • Five building blocks of patient information safety
  • The typical policy pitfalls to avoid while optimizing your primary mechanism for risk transfer, cyber liability insurance
  • How to overcome the crushing complexity of compliance
  • How modern risk management transforms the cyber liability into a strategic asset


Patient's lives are at stake when medical records go missing, are held hostage, or are corrupted by fraudulent use.  And, without adequate preparation and protection, a cyber breach can put your hospital's ability to stay in business at risk.  Plus your liability and the liability of your board could be on the line.

How severe is this risk?  Consider what happened in 2017:

  • Over 200,000 data records lost or stolen every hour
  • Cybercriminals paid only $1 for a stolen credit card but shelled out $50 to $350 for a single ePHI record
  • 33% of all Americans' medical records stolen by year end


With an average of one million new cyber threats released every day and the cost of a data breach to American businesses - including rural hospitals - ranging from $800,000 to $3.6 million, this is a life or death matter.

For an up-to-the-minute assessment of the cyber liability environment and the questions you and your board members should be asking to satisfy your fiduciary duties, register now.
