As this trying year drags on, insurance agents might be tempted to take a quick breather. From a cyber liability perspective, however, the pressure on agents is ramping up over the rest of the year. Here’s why.
In past columns, we have discussed the regulations that deal with cyber security practices that affect agents, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), the New York Cybersecurity Requirements for Financial Services Companies and versions of the National Association of Insurance Commissioner’s Insurance Data Security Model Law (passed in eight states with six pending). States that passed the NAIC law did so last year and the CCPA went into effect in January.
