Sessions are offered January 15, 24, and 29, 11:30–11:50 a.m. EDT. The cost is $9.99 for all three sessions. Even if you can't participate in the live sessions, you will receive a link to the on-demand recordings and can listen to them at your leisure.

Register once and attend:

January 15—It's a Cyber World 

In this session, learn about the ever-changing and accelerating world of cybercrime. Participants will gain an understanding of the escalation of worldwide cyber threats and incursions, and drill down to the very real threats against small business owners in the independent agent distribution channel. We'll also cover potential costs , from prevention and post-breach standpoints. 

January 24—Cyber Hygiene as a Regulatory Requirement 

In the emerging regulatory environment for cyber prevention, agents and brokers need to understand what is required of them nationally, and from the states in which they do business. Participants in this session will learn more about: 

  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley
  • NY DF
  • The NAIC Model Law
  • Emerging state online privacy laws 

January 29—Real Cyber Resources to Get Started and Stay Prepared 

Admittedly, knowing where to start on something as complex as a cyber hygiene program is key. Participants in this session will learn more about the Agents Council for Technology's 'Agency Cyber Guide', and how it provides clear background, details on regulations, and resources to address cyber regulations. 

Consider presenting conference style for the entire agency to benefit.
