About RSS

RSS is a great way to keep up on news, updates, and consumer alerts from the NAIC. An RSS reader keeps track of new information on your favorite sites. Simply download an RSS reader, click on the RSS icon on the NAIC's page, copy the URL, and then paste the URL to your RSS reader. Some browsers have a built-in RSS reader and allow you to simply click "Subscribe" to receive updates from that page. Once your RSS is set up, the updates will start flowing directly to you.

NAIC Enterprise Architecture 

The NAIC Enterprise Architecture is the Information Technology (IT) architecture shared by NAIC/NIPR applications. The architecture consists of infrastructure, platform, and security services that provide operational, security, and hosting capabilities to NAIC/NIPR applications.

Infrastructure Services
Infrastructure services provide the base level of technology used to provide platform and security services. Infrastructure services consist of, networking, server, storage, and virtualization technologies.

Platform Services
Platform services provide a base to develop, run, and manage applications. Platform services include databases, middleware, and operating systems. 

Security Services
Security services provide security controls for the NAIC Enterprise Architecture. Security services consist of technologies including antivirus, email security, firewall and intrusion prevention, identity and access management, physical access systems, and vulnerability management systems.

User Organization Responsibilities

This section describes some of the controls that should be in operation at user entities (clients) to complement the controls at the NAIC. User auditors should determine whether user entities have established controls to provide reasonable assurance that:

  • User organizations are responsible for the accuracy and completeness of data entered into the NAIC systems.
  • User organizations are responsible to inform the NAIC in writing of changes in authorized staff when the change occurs.
  • User organizations are responsible to read, acknowledge and be familiar with the licensing agreements.
  • User organizations are responsible for retention of supporting documentation for the appropriate length of time to comply with federal, state and local compliance agencies.
  • User organizations are responsible for ensuring only approved users are given access to NAIC systems
  • User organizations are responsible for performing their own user access reviews of access to the NAIC systems

NAIC Websites
The NAIC does not endorse or require the use of any specific internet browser. However, the websites are tested for reliability and compatibility using Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Using these browsers will ensure that website content is delivered as intended.

Other browser versions and operating system platforms may have received some testing and are not excluded as options for viewing the websites but have not been thoroughly evaluated for compatibility—using them may yield unintended viewing results.

Browser Settings
Regardless of which browser or operating system is used, JavaScript and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) should be enabled for the best results.  These features add improved usability, and help to organize the content in an accessible manner.

Section 508 Guidance

Recommended Browsers for NAIC Secure Applications

Most NAIC applications are written using JavaScript 1.2 or higher and use cookies; consequently, these applications perform optimally with browsers configured as follows:

  • JavaScript 1.2 or higher enabled
  • Cookies accepted
  • Pop-up blockers disabled (many NAIC applications use popup windows and require popup blockers to allow popup windows to be displayed)
  • TLS 1.2 enabled

Some NAIC applications may not support all of the recommended browsers due to special application needs and/or possible software issues in browsers. The State Based Systems (SBS) application must use Microsoft Internet Explorer.
