Must Insurance players attend the Cybersec conference?

Qn. I am an insurance practitioner? Why should I participate or sponsor the 3rd annual cybersecurity and risk management conference?

 A: Insurance sells a promise and relies on trust. The industry has also undergone a tremendous change in the way the business is conducted from risk assessment and underwriting to onboarding, service delivery, and on-going support.

Regardless of the insurance products you provide, there is increased use of technology in service delivery. Insurance companies keep lots of private data about clients which is too detailed due to the nature of the business.

Today, insurance companies in Uganda now allow policyholders to check their policy status online. Also, at some insurance companies, once and initiate cover and effect payment without having made physical contact.

This calls for cybersecurity assurance to both the regulator, customers, and the shareholders and where applicable, the re-insurers. Investment and participating in cybersecurity to understand recent developments are of the essence.

To this end, the Institute of Forensics & ICT Security, IFIS, in partnership with NITA Uganda, hereby invites you to participate in the 3rd annual cybersecurity and risk management conference.

Dates: 16th – 18th October 2019
