The five steps involved during a risk assessment
The first proposed step by NAIC is making risk assessment internal to each company. With a personal sense of responsibility to protect customer data, insurance companies will remain on their toes as far as data security is concerned; thus, reducing the likelihood of data breaches. This process begins with designating a risk manager who will be responsible for overseeing the company’s security program.
The threats that face insurance data are widespread. Because they can arise from both internal-and-external sources, the NAIC-proposed law outlines that insurers should dedicate a process towards identifying all potential risks to safeguard against them.
Similar to how an insurance company assesses the likelihood that a policyholder may get into an accident, insurers should determine the likelihood of customer data being breached at any given time. The assessment should also include all financial, legal-an- intangible consequences your company might face.
The next step is to review current cybersecurity systems and to determine how well they stack up against standardized guidelines. This review should involve all networks and software being used, data storage practices, classification, and transmission procedures. Any shortfalls that are identified should be noted down to determine a plan for improvement.
