This webinar will address the critical CCPA compliance issues faced by insurance companies. This will include an in-depth examination of the exemptions which may apply insurance companies, how those exemptions relate to personal information collected by insurance companies, considerations for how to deal with third-parties, and an update on the regulations proposed by the California Attorney General. Join Baker Donelson’s Matt White and Alex Koskey as they provide a roadmap of CCPA obligations as they relate to insurance companies.

A Vision for 2020: Cybersecurity Compliance for the New Year
Jan 28, 2020

Insurers have long been a critical component of our country’s financial services industry. And like other sectors of the industry, insurers recently have become increasingly dependent on technology and electronic data, including highly sensitive business and consumer data. For obvious reasons, insurers are at increased risk of cyber-attacks, data breach, and other cyber mishaps. Given the seriousness of these risks to the US economy and individual consumers, regulators and law makers are now zeroing in on the insurance industry’s cyber security practices and procedures. Join Judy Selby, founder of Clearview Privacy Consulting, LCC and Judy Selby Consulting, LLC and Heather McArn, partner at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP on January 28, 2020 at 2:00 pm Eastern as they discuss the current state of cyber laws and regulations impacting the insurance sector and provide practical advice on achieving compliance and mitigating cyber risks.
