All Insurance companies are concerned with data privacy and security, especially title insurers and closers who deal with Privacy Laws and the Gramm Leach Bliley Act.  There should therefore be particular interest in the  second annual Global Insurance Symposium, May 26-28 in Des Moines, will include sessions on cyber security, big data and innovation.

Speakers include Thomas Sullivan, associate director of the Federal Reserve board of governors; Daud Vicary Abdullah, president and CEO of the Global University of Islamic Finance; and insurance commissioners Ken Kobylowski of New Jersey, John Huff of Missouri, Ted Nickel of Wisconsin and Kevin McCarty of Florida.

Sponsors include the Iowa Insurance Institute, the Federation of Iowa Insurers, the Iowa Economic Development Authority, the Greater Des Moines Partnership and the Iowa Insurance Division.
