Now more than ever, commercial insurance carriers must focus on protecting their customers' data and keeping their assets secure from identity fraud and cybercrime. Protecting their business from these risks at the point of quote, renewal and claim is essential to success. However, balancing the need for an effective security strategy with the need to elevate customer experience in a digital world can be confusing and overwhelming. A panel of insurance experts explores how an effective identity authentication and verification strategy can provide the protection required, while exceeding customer expectations.
