Beware of indemnification clauses in your contracts or BAA

​By AJ Weitzberg

There was a case just decided where an insurance company denied coverage, under a cyber insurance policy, for the reimbursement of the costs for a contractual reimbursement clause.  If you have an agreement that says you have to reimburse a customer for their expenses from your breach, those costs may very well not be covered.  

Review your policies, review your contracts and Business Associate Agreements, this can be a costly omission.
