Insurance Brokers

There has been a significant impact on the Insurance Industry since Covid 19. The highlights include the ever increasing importance of:

Cybersecurity. There has been an increase in concerns with people working from home, as personal IT systems and set ups are not as secure as the office environment, leaving more devices susceptible to being hacked.

Compliance. Especially from key vendors, to ensure companies are able to manage security beyond their own walls is essential.

With professional technical guidance to deliver a preventative, proactive approach organisations in the insurance sector can be well protected.
