Sensitive personal information about health, habits and lifestyle is entrusted to insurance companies by their customers, and employees need to understand their responsibilities under the GLBA to protect that information.
Mahwah, NJ (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
WeComply, Inc., a leader in online ethics and compliance training, has announced a new course on the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) for Insurance Companies. This course explains the GLBA's data-security requirements in simple, understandable terms for insurance-company employees who work with consumer information in any form.
The GLBA for Insurance Companies course begins with an overview of the GLBA and covers protected information, notice of usage, delivering notice and protecting personal information. Other topics included are social engineering, unauthorized access and misuse, providing notice of an incident and enforcement.
“Current technology enables companies of all kinds to collect, analyze and deliver data quickly and cheaply,” said Mike Pallatta, WeComply CEO. “While this clearly has its benefits, it also presents many challenges to protecting information privacy. Sensitive personal information about health, habits and lifestyle is entrusted to insurance companies by their customers, and employees need to understand their responsibilities under the GLBA to protect that information. This course covers the requirements most important to insurance companies and can help those organizations stay in compliance.”
