The Cyberworld—Insuring Emerging Exposures (How to Become Successful in Cyberinsurance)

Keith Savino

Has a client ever said this to you? "I contract out all of my IT stuff, so if I get hacked, my IT provider will make my clients and me whole, so I don't need cyber coverage." In this Webinar, The Cyberworld—Insuring Emerging Exposures, Keith A. Savino, CPIA, will discuss how we got here; what cyberexposures and obligations you and your clients face; and some solutions. He will discuss cyber from the perspectives of network security; regulatory actions; reputation; restoration; and notifications. Policy coverages, including first- and third-party coverages, and cyberclaims will be analyzed. Savino wraps up with a review of your responsibility to protect yourself and your clients, and the Webinar concludes with a Q&A session.

Business Exposures for the Personal Lines Insured

Mishell K. Magnusson, CIC, CISR, CPIA, AAI, FIPC

There are many sources of activities that could be considered a “business” as defined by the Homeowners and Personal Auto Policy.  Insured’s may have no idea that their activities may be considered a business activity.  Business activities can occur whether a person is an employee of others or is self-employed.  Revenue-generating hobbies may also be considered a business activity.

According to The National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research, Home-based business is a $427,000,000 a year industry; Over 12% of all U.S. households operate a full or part-time home-based business; In addition, between 34 and 36 million households have an active home office.

It is not always easy to determine if an insured’s activity will be considered a “business” on the homeowners and/or personal auto policy.  In this presentation, we will explore this.

Understanding Occurrence and Claims Made Triggers

Steven D. Lyon, CPCU, CIC, CRM, AAI, ARM, AIS
Lyon Consulting Services, LLC

Two widely differing approaches are used by insurers to determine coverage when writing liability insurance. The difference centers upon the event that triggers coverage, and is known as the "coverage trigger". The two approaches are known as "claims-made and reported" ("claims made") and "occurence". Knowing the differences between the claims-made and occurence forms is key when it comes to coverage for your clients. Steve Lyon gives us a session chock full of examples to explain these important differences.

Additional Insureds & Waiver of Subrogation

Mishell K. Magnusson, CIC, CISR, CPIA, AAI, FIPC

Most people (including the Named Insured; Additional Insured; and the insurance agent) don't realize what they "get" and what they "don't get" when being listed as an additional insured. Many ask for Additional Named Insured status. There is no such thing!

As part of the program we look how an an Additional Insured can be included on the Commercial General Liability policy; the Business Auto policy; the Workers Compensation policy as well as the Umbrella/Excess.

Ethics–Something Worth Pursuing

Steven D. Lyon, CPCU, CIC, CRM, AAI, ARM, AIS
Lyon Consulting Services, LLC

This course begins with the basic elements of ethics and the question “can ethics be taught?” We then discuss ethics and the law; Department of Insurance regulation, criminal and civil actions and court decisions and jury awards for unethical behavior. We review violations of ethical codes and reasons why people break the rules, do the rules change? We discuss ethics today: why be ethical, who is watching? In addition, we take a look at a few interesting and valuable case studies. This course reviews real life, every day, practical applications including, but not limited to, completing applications, trust accounts, accounts receivable vs. accounts payable, return premiums and placement of coverage-how do you choose a carrier? We’re positive you’ll enjoy this course and the unique abilities of the presenter, Steve Lyon.

Hold on Tight – The World is Changing! (HO Issues, Drones, Autonomous Vehicles, Ride Sharing, Flood and Excess Flood)

Steven D. Lyon, CPCU, CIC, CRM, AAI, ARM, AIS
Lyon Consulting Services, LLC

With all the fast paced technology changes happening in the world, the Insurance Industry is struggling to understand and keep up with them. Many of our policies that were written decades ago, never anticipated facing some of the exposures we face today ! If you are not familiar with  smartphone applications like: Uber, Lyft, DriveHubber, Shuttle, Airbnb, Flip Key, Airpooler, and more; millions of your clients are !   The problem is, using these programs can be dangerous (if not deadly) to your insurance health. 

Did you know that, one out of almost three flood claims is now occurring in non-special flood hazard areas?? That’s where banks don’t make you carry flood insurance. After Superstorm Sandy, many people were unsatisfied after dealing with FEMA.  Maybe it was because they expected their flood policy to respond like their homeowner policy. It wasn’t designed to respond that way, and it won’t. This class will help you understand the troublesome issues with the NFIP, and what you can do to make sure your client can obtain adequate coverage, through excess and specialty carriers. Don’t let your clients go uninformed about all these exposures.

Catherine L. Trischan, CPCU, CIC, CRM, AU, AAI, CRIS, ARM, MLIS

^FF^UM Denotes this course is approved by Fireman’s Fund and Utica Mutual for E&O loss prevention credit.

Advances in communication and technology have presented great opportunities for our insurance agencies. Along with these opportunities, though, come new E&O challenges. How do we handle the customer who wants to do business via text message? How do we manage the employee who wants to work on the road from his laptop or cell phone? How do we create websites that are informative and consumer friendly, without increasing our E&O exposure? How has the use of Facebook, Twitter and other sites changed the way we do business, and what additional steps must agencies take to protect themselves against E&O in this new world of social media? We will discuss these issues and more as we explore the Next Generation of E&O.
