Mandatory State Requirements: Is Your Business At Risk?If you or one of your employees lost a laptop, would you understand your legal exposure? In addition to any insurance industry specific data security requirements that may apply in the states in which you do business, how do you address new data security regulations, enacted in 45 states, for safeguarding customers' personal information?

To help address this problem, PIA has partnered with MobileSecure to provide insurance agents with Laptop Protective Services‚. This solution helps agencies take a proactive stand in managing their data security risk by understanding their exposure from lost laptops. It also provides tools to help them comply with applicable general business regulations.

Laptop Protective Services provides a highly secure and easy-to-use fully managed service for agencies to:

  • Monitor laptops in your organization
  • Remotely identify files on your laptops to understand your potential data exposure risk
  • Remotely lock down your laptops
  • Use laptop location history and file audit reports as compliance and audit tools

Don't think this can happen to you? Think again! One laptop in five is either lost or stolen each year and over 40% of all data security incidents are caused by lost or stolen laptops. Laptop Protective Services brings together the power of mobility and peace of mind of security. PIA strongly encourages you to review your data security plans and, if your agency uses laptops, to consider implementing LPS as one risk mitigation tool.
