Insurance Act 2015

We are now in a new regime which brings many positive changes. The Act requires policyholders to consider and present their risk in a different way, – this is known as ‘fair presentation’. Have you trained your staff and reviewed and amended your standard documentation to reflect the provisions of the Act?

The checklist

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

From May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation will introduce increased controls on your use of client data. Are you clear on what is defined as ‘data’ within your business and how it must be dealt with? Are your policies robust and up to date? Breaches will be dealt with by the ICO and in some cases, the FCA, potentially resulting in regulatory sanctions.

The checklist

  • Bring together a project team, including a Data Protection Officer
  • Undertake a Data Protection Impact Assessment
  • Document security policy with ‘appropriate safeguards’
  • Build a workforce who understand their privacy duties
  • Hear how the GDPR will affect the insurance sector - download our quick guide.
