Re: Let Agents Be the Voice of Data Security
Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Lewis. As cyberattacks and security fears continue to escalate, it's true that customers want to be sure their data is protected. Independent agents are in a good position to give them that reassurance, and it's important that they have the necessary information to do so.

Let Agents Be the Voice of Data Security
Brad's column is spot-on because it respects the reader, who may also be a prospective client. 

He recognizes that current and potential clients want assurances (from the insurance industry) that programs exist to safeguard personal data.

Independent agents, of which Brad is one, should be at the forefront of this movement because they meet with or talk to clients on a daily basis.

Insurance companies should empower these agents with relevant information, so someone like Brad can answer a client's questions and assuage his or her concerns with facts, not slogans or buzzwords.

This article is a summons to action.

Keep customers informed
Thanks, Brad, you make a lot of good points here. Today's customers are very aware of the rise in data breaches and will want to know their information is secure. Insurers who share their efforts to invest in new technologies and promote data security will make their policyholders feel safer in trusting them with their personal information.
