FOILING THE HACKER

VIEWS: 10 PAGES: 2

The Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America's Agents Council for Technology (ACT) recently hosted its third free Webinar on e-mail security titled "Protecting Independent Agent Clients with Secure E-mail Using TLS (Transport Layer Security)." In announcing the Webinar, ACT executive director Jeff Yates said that the commercial line applications and other confidential consumer information need to be protected if they are sent via e-mail to carriers. Jim Rogers, director of distribution technology, The Hartford Financial Services Group, said that agencies should use an IT expert to set up TLS on their e-mail server for incoming and outgoing e-mails. The IT professional can also determine which of the agent's carriers are enabled for TLS. In this day and age of focus on security, all e-mail gateways should be configured to use TLS if it is available.
