Cybersecurity Bill Passes State Senate With NAIFA Amendment

By Bill McClenahan, NAIFA-Wisconsin Lobbyist on 6/9/21 2:48 PM

New data security standards for the insurance industry passed the Wisconsin State Senate on June 9, 2021 on a voice vote.

NAIFA strongly supported this bipartisan bill, based on a national model, to provide regulatory uniformity and to protect consumer information.

Senate Bill 160 includes exemptions for small businesses that were supported by NAIFA-WI. The Senate also added an amendment that our Wisconsin members suggested, providing an exemption for securities brokers that are already subject to cybersecurity regulations by FINRA.

May President's Message

By Daniel Ward, NAIFA-Wisconsin President on 5/17/21 2:43 PM

Hello NAIFA-Wisconsin,

I want to check in with everyone and highlight what has been happening around NAIFA Wisconsin. 2021 has been off to a busy start. It’s hard to believe we’ve already reached mid-year. I hope the first half of 2021 has been filled with growth, activity, fulfillment, and well-being for everyone. As a chapter, the first half of the year has undoubtedly been active. We’ve been to more than 20 legislative events, hosted many successful CE days, had our annual Day on the Hill event, and worked hard at delivering a meaningful and engaging experience to our members. I hope you have had an opportunity to participate in some of these and had thought-provoking takeaways to help within your practice.
