Today, the South Carolina Department of Insurance released Bulletin 2018-09 Cybersecurity Event Reporting Form. Why should you read it? This bulletin focuses on how the Department of Insurance defines a reportable cybersecurity event and the notification procedures. The three main take aways from the bulletin are:

  1. Encrypting data can prevent an Insurance licensee from declaring a cybersecurity event.
  2. Loss of paper documents does not constitute a cybersecurity event.
  3. Licensees have 72 hours to notify DOI of a cyber security event, unless they are considered a “non-domicile entity”.

If you are a South Carolina licensee who falls under the provisions of the Information Data Security Act, Tandem Cyber Solutions can help you with the required security assessments and develop a comprehensive Information Security  strategy to meet regulatory obligations and protect your client’s data.
