Third and finally, the model law recognizes the unique business-to-business
relationships that exist within the insurance industry by including different
notification requirements for reinsurers
to insurers and insurers to producers
of record.

QUICK TAKEAWAYS
Regulators and lawmakers are identifying standards in cybersecurity that
companies should be implementing to
protect business operations and consumer information. The NAIC's model
law joins a growing group of laws
and regulations instituted by New
York, Connecticut, Massachusetts,
Colorado and Vermont that specifically require companies to institute
cybersecurity  programs, policies and
procedures. The model law has many
similarities with the NYDFS cyber
regulations, but there are some differences. Both regimes recognize that
protecting critical business operations is just as important as protecting
consumer information.

These laws and regulations will serve
as a roadmap for plaintiffs and shareholders pursuing civil litigation against
Licensees. The FTC also can be expected
to look to these laws when determining
whether a company engaged in "deceptive" or "unfair" practices. Companies
that fail to implement these standards
can expect enforcement and perhaps
significant fines. For some companies,

a regulatory enforcement action piled
on to the effects of a data breach or
ransomware-type event can mean
the difference between recovery and
bankruptcy. Now is the time to act.
Brokers and insurers should start preparing for cybersecurity compliance
by conducting necessary risk assessments and building a solid information
security program.
