FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NAIC OPENS TWO CYBERSECURITY-RELATED DRAFTS FOR PUBLIC COMMENT

WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 12, 2015) As the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) quickly responds to meet state insurance department cybersecurity needs, two draft documents are now exposed for comment.

The first is a draft of Principles for Effective Cybersecurity Insurance Regulatory Guidance, developed by the Cybersecurity (EX) Task Force. This document will help state insurance departments identify uniform standards, promote accountability, and provide access to essential information. It also outlines the process for working with the insurance industry to identify risks and offer practical solutions.

The second draft document: the Annual Statement Supplement for Cybersecurity policies, comes from the NAIC's Property and Casualty Insurance (C) Committee. Regulators, interested parties and industry representatives are encouraged to review and provide comments about the exposures by March 23rd. Comments will facilitate discussion at our Spring National Meeting in Phoenix at the end of the month. Written comments should be sent to psimpson@naic.org.
