Protect Confidential Customer Data
The threats to insurance providers are similar to those plaguing other businesses, but there are specific characteristics of the insurance industry that translate into higher risk. On the business side, there are confidential business plans, financial assessments, and other sensitive data that must not get into the wrong hands. Compromised employee login credentials can lead to account takeovers, identity theft, blackmail, spreading crimeware, fraud, and other criminal activities.
Prevent data leakage.
Continuously Monitor for Stolen or Leaked Credentials
Sophisticated phishing campaigns targeting VIPs and employees can wreak havoc on an insurance company. At the same time, targeted malware against insurer IT infrastructures continues to be discovered in the wild.
Prioritize Patching for Critical Vulnerabilities
Unpatched software vulnerabilities and customer databases that don’t apply the proper level of encryption are examples of prime vulnerability targets. Attackers exploiting either of these vulnerabilities can exfiltrate customer payment information, impact the company’s bottom line, and damage brand reputation.
Prioritize critical threats.
Leverage investments already made in technology, process development, and training. Eliminate capital expenditures, extra human resources or infrastructure, and unnecessary software deployments.
