Cleveland Clinic’s Charles Kolodkin and Clearwater’s Bob Chaput Share Crucial Steps in Developing a Hospital Cyber Risk Management Strategy

Newest Business of Healthcare (BOH) Episode “Innovating to Reduce Cyber Risk” Shows How Captives are Important Strategic Tools for Managing Risk

March 06, 2018

NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Charles Kolodkin, Executive Director, Enterprise Risk and Insurance at Cleveland Clinic and Bob Chaput, CEO of Clearwater Compliance, share their compelling expertise on ways health systems and hospitals can improve cyber risk management, transfer liability, and better identify, manage and address network security risk in the newest Business of Healthcare (BOH) episode, “Innovating to Reduce Cyber Risk.”

“Innovating to Reduce Cyber Risk” is designed to help hospital and health system leaders better understand how captive insurance companies prove to be critical in the ongoing effort to manage and reduce cyber risk. Cyber risk may cause patient and reputational harm to hospitals and health systems which means third party and regulatory risk exposure quickly bleeds into medical professional and hospital professional liability, loss of income, and other aspects of organizational risk.

In the new BOH series, Kolodkin and Chaput share expertise on:

  • The ways cyber and privacy risks bleed over into Medical Professional Liability risks
  • Building a commercial cyber insurance program as part of a comprehensive risk funding strategy
  • Telemedicine and the next generation of device protection in healthcare
  • How the captive insurance company can be a complementary tool for financing and reducing cyber risk
  • Heightening protection of medical devices to reduce potential for patient harm
  • The fundamental principles of risk management: risk identification, risk assessment and benchmarking
