If you have been following our blog, you have realized the impact of the South Carolina Data Security Act on SC-based insurance companies. These businesses now have clearer guidelines detailing due care in protecting customer information and can face heavy repercussions for ignoring those guidelines. Although this may seem a nuisance to the insurance industry, overall this is a big step in securing consumer Personally Identifiable Information (PII). As such, it comes as no surprise that insurance associations have begun the journey of educating members before the act is fully enforced.

On July 26, 2018, the South Carolina Insurance Association (SCIA) will have an educational seminar in Columbia, SC, concerning the requirements of the South Carolina Insurance Data Security Act for their members. The two-hour seminar will open with remarks from Russ Dubisky, Executive Director of the SC Insurance Association. Following the opening remarks, the seminar will address how the SC law will impact the rest of the nation and speakers will then walk members through a practical guide to compliance. To close out the seminar, guests will have the opportunity to pose questions to representatives of the SC Department of Insurance concerning the Data Security Act.
This will be a great opportunity for members of the SC Insurance Association to not only get answers to their questions but also develop a comprehensive information security plan for their respective companies.
