Delray Beach, FL – Tower MSA Partners recently announced that it will be presenting a free webinar, “Preventing Cybersecurity Threats in Workers’ Compensation,” on Wednesday, February 19, at 2 p.m. eastern.
Whether it’s an insurer interested in telemedicine as a way to efficiently deliver quality care, a payer’s use of data-driven predictive analytics to facilitate clinical decision making or implementation of automated claims processing solutions, reliance on technology in workers’ compensation is increasing.
While technology increases efficiencies, it also offers hackers another entry point to private claim information. According to a recent Risk and Insurance article Workers’ Comp Critical Challenges for 2020, the more technology is brought to bear, the more cyber risk increases. A breach of claims data can result in steep HIPPA-violation fines, reputational damage and, at worst, interruptions in care for injured workers. Risk and Insurance’s survey of 669 workers’ compensation professionals ranked cyber risk as a top-10 challenge for 2020.
Tower’s Chief Compliance Officer Dan Anders will moderate a panel of cybersecurity specialists who share real-life examples to illustrate cybersecurity threats to organizations of all sizes. Tower’s Vice President of IT Jesse Shade, Vigilant Technology Solutions’ Seth Marsh, and Robert Kolb, president of Premier Mindset, will discuss the risks and share desk-level and higher-level systematic measures to prevent data breaches.
