Can Your Agency Pass the Data Security Quiz?

Posted on December 04, 2015 by Chris Ries

Agency Management System Quiz

In today’s uncertain world, cloud-based technology just makes sense. 

Agencies that use an insurance agency management system (or AMS) to store their data in safe, cloud-based servers know that their customers’ information is backed up regularly, protected by state-of-the-art security, and monitored by professionals around the clock. Cloud-based storage also allows agencies to work remotely, entering and updating important policy information from anywhere and at any time. The convenience and security that cloud-based storage provides is a powerful booster for productivity, and priceless in the event of a natural disaster.  

Take this Data Security Quiz to find out whether your agency should consider a move to the cloud.  

Simply answer Yes or No to the following questions. 

1. Could you fully recover your agency’s data tomorrow if you had to?
2. Is your data backed up every night?
3. Has your county experienced any power outages, severe weather events, or natural disasters?
4. Are any of your mission critical servers physically located in your office?
5. Do your client and policy databases have privacy protections?
6. Will your agency data and financial records stay intact for the required time period?
7. Do you have IT experts on your staff who stay current on data security trends?
8. Are you using up-to-date technology and infrastructure for data storage?
9. Would you have to wait hours or days to recover data after a disaster?
10. Do you have a disaster recovery plan? If so, have you conducted a dry run in the last year?

If you answered “no” to five or more of these questions, you could probably benefit from a modern, cloud-based insurance agency management system.
