WHAT: The monetary value of personally identifiable information (PII) outstrips all other forms of stolen data on the black market. Case in point, one of the industry's largest health insurance providers recently experienced a breach that exposed the personal information of nearly 80 million customers.

Investments insurance providers have made in digital technology -- mobile applications, advanced web functionality, etc. -- to enable a higher level of personalized customer interaction and better health management has increased risks. Protecting these assets poses new challenges for IT security and compliance professionals.

As organizations leverage new engagement technologies to gain competitive advantage and maintain customer loyalty and lower rates of disenrollment, they could easily lose sight of their digital footprint. At the same time, they may open new doors for cybercriminals to exploit vulnerabilities.

This webinar will explain:

  • Top threats in the digital landscape facing insurance companies
  • How cybercriminals use mobile apps to steal customers' personal data
  • The extent of potential threats from third-party code libraries
