ITA LIVE Session Focuses on Security Issues

Robert Regis Hyle | February 13, 2017

Companies certainly have to make sure their own policies, procedures and practices comply with a host of information security requirements and “voluntary” guidance, but regulators and others are increasingly extending their interest into how companies interact with vendors, service providers, and other third-party business partners. 

The issue of security will be focused on at the ITA LIVE conference. Speakers will be Thomas Dunbar, head of information risk management at XL Group, and Michael Menapace, a partner in the Wiggin and Dana law practice. Launchpad: Time to Soar is the theme for the third annual conference, which will be held March 12-14 at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort & Spa.

 This session will explore the NY DFS regulation, the NAIC model act, and other rubrics under which companies must consider their obligations as vendors and partners to others, and what companies must do to make sure their own vendors and business partners are not the weak link in their own security protocol.

A sample of other speakers on tap for ITA LIVE include:

  • Craig Bedell, worldwide insurance industry exec, business analytics, for IBM, who will return for the second year to continue the conversation he began in 2016 on cognitive computing.
  • Tim Attia, CEO of Slice Labs, who will deliver the keynote address and discuss how the start-up insurer’s attempts to provide better coverage for the sharing economy with policies aimed at Uber and Lyft drivers and those renting their homes through Airbnb.
