The insurance industry collects vast amounts of personal information from its clients in a variety of capacities, such as health, life, commercial, home and auto. This information is subject to the strict protections mandated by various regulatory agencies.
The ramifications of leaving personal information open to unauthorized access or misuse can have a tremendous impact on a business and its duty to its clients. At Canaudit, we have worked with numerous insurance providers to increase network security and ensure that their systems are protected against today’s top risks.
Regulatory standards concerning the insurance sector may include PCI-DSS, SOX and GLBA. Related security frameworks may include ISO 27001 or 27002 and NIST SP800-53.
