In my travels visiting carriers and doing strategy workshops over the last few months I have noticed that there are a lot more communications going on between IT and the senior business leadership, including the board. This is due to a number of drivers, including the digitization of insurance, the innovation going on in Silicon valley, and the increasing security risk and related state regulations.
Cybersecurity is top of mind for insurers following the implementation of New York State’s new cybersecurity regulations this past March. While these currently only affect carriers operating in NY, other states seem likely to adopt versions of the NYS regulations rather than wait on the NAIC’s Model Law. These regulations are notable for their unprecedented standards and strict requirements, including instituting a formal CISO, documenting policies, and submitting to regular assessments.
The latest news from the NAIC Cybersecurity panel is a continuation of a theme that Novarica has been writing about and discussing for the past year. As you probably know, the NAIC created a draft set of Cybersecurity regulations as a response to different evolving state regulations. The idea is that the states would all adopt a version of the same. New York State jumped ahead of the other 49 states because of the concentration of large insurers and insurance business in New York City.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
