Protect Employee Benefit Plans against Cyber Hacks

Cyber Liability for Today’s Emerging Risks

Employee benefit and retirement plans face significant exposure from cyber hackers – even more so today in the age of COVID with organizations and benefit providers relying heavily on electronic access and creating new vulnerabilities. In addition, cyber criminals are becoming increasingly sophisticated in targeting entities that manage vast amounts of assets and personal data—two characteristics inherent in retirement and benefits plans and their service providers.

Charged with the responsibility of protecting plan participants personal identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI), these plans and their trustees must implement risk management and vendor management procedures and consider purchasing Cyber Liability insurance.

The Department of Labor’s recent Cybersecurity Guidance for Plan Sponsors and Plan Fiduciaries states that responsible plan fiduciaries have a duty to mitigate a plan’s cybersecurity risks. Compliance with state law reporting requirements, notification requirements, managing and paying for business interruption expenses to get back up and running and incurring lawsuits can deplete valuable plan assets.  Having the right Cyber policy in place can help cover these expenses.
