CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- November 19, 2012

AmWINS Brokerage of the Carolinas (“AmWINS”), through its partnership with
Premier Insurance Management Services Inc. (“PIMS”) and Beazley plc, is now
offering a unique data privacy and network security insurance solution for
hospitals. The solution is tailored to meet the needs of hospitals for privacy
breaches, and information security and online website content exposures.

“Hospitals are truly facing a new era of network security needs, and data
breaches are an increasing threat,” said Dave Statis, Senior Vice President at
AmWINS. “With Electronic Health Records and HIPAA regulations being
heightened, it is evident that more healthcare entities are insuring this
exposure. This program is designed to provide them not only with unparalleled
risk management tools to prevent breaches, but also services in the event a
breach does occur.”

In partnership with PIMS, AmWINS will offer Beazley Breach Response, Beazley’s
flagship product, to hospitals nationwide. Beazley Breach Response is a
complete privacy breach response management and information security insurance
solution that includes coverage for breaches affecting up to 5,000,000
individuals, including notification and credit monitoring.

In addition to Beazley Breach Response’s existing services and coverage, all
program participants will benefit from unique program benefits including:

  *No claims bonus for all program participants – 10% rate credit at renewal
  *Enhanced coverage, which includes: 1) healthcare restoration coverage
    endorsement – $100,000 limit per occurrence in addition to policy limit,
    and 2) definition of insured amended to include part time, leased,
    volunteers or any independent contractors
  *Online Electronic Health Record assessment
  *One-day Beazley Breach Response on-site workshop for large hospital
    systems
