TEL AVIV, Israel, Oct. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — In the modern-day, all a company’s most vital information is stored digitally. No longer is keeping it safe as simple as locking a filing cabinet. Cyberattacks are an increasing danger for companies. In 2020, there have been nearly 16 billion records exposed, a worrying 273 percent rise compared with the beginning of 2019. Most prominently was the Twitter hack in July, where 45 notable individuals were hacked in a Bitcoin scam.

These attacks are growing in their sophistication. As such, companies need to evolve their security to protect their data from cybercriminal activities. Staying ahead of the curve is a priority. The holy grail of cybercrime is personally identifiable information, which can be sold off or ransomed for large amounts of money. Companies worldwide are legally obliged to follow GDPR compliance, under EU law, protecting such data from potential breaches, and conforming to the highest security standards.

However, the question is: how do companies secure their data from attacks? Encryption is one of the most secure methods of personally identifiable information (PPI) protection. By using encryption, a company’s valuable data will be protected from theft, as hackers have no means of decryption. Thereby, significantly reducing the impact of cyberattacks.

Yet, encryption is complicated when dealing with the management of private keys. That’s why we developed AnonyFlow (anonyflow.com). AnonyFlow uses encryption-based anonymization to protect part of the data. The rest will be left untouched. You decide which data you want to protect. Instead of going through the tedious process of secret key management, we handle everything for you.

Through the API, information can be deanonymized whenever you need access. Data can also be shared safely and securely with colleagues or third parties. Plus, we always have a customer support team on hand

TORONTO, Oct. 1, 2020 /CNW/ – Ontario’s auto insurers reported consumers have been eligible to receive almost $1 Billion in relief in response to COVID-19. This represents an increase of over $300M or 45% since insurers last reported in May 2020. Information reported by the 13 largest insurers is also being shared publicly to provide greater transparency to inform consumers.

“Our government took immediate action to make the required regulatory changes so that consumers could benefit from the change in driving behaviour during the pandemic,” said Minister Phillips. “We made it very clear to insurers that drivers deserved more, which resulted in auto insurers making available almost $1B in relief for Ontario drivers. I have asked FSRA to continue monitoring how insurance companies are providing relief to ensure consumers’ needs are being met as the pandemic continues to evolve.”

The $1B reported consumer relief is equivalent to 7.1% of total annual auto insurance premiums and made available to over 90% of the 6.6 million auto insurance consumers in Ontario, an increase of more than 1.5 million consumers since April. 

“Our focus is on the fair treatment of consumers and helping them make choices by sharing information and resources,” said Tim Bzowey, Executive Vice President, Auto/Insurance Products. “We will continue to monitor whether the promised relief is provided and evaluate whether insurers’ rates remain just and reasonable.”

Consumer relief is available through rebates, rate reductions, risk re-ratings, premium deferrals and other means, and varies by insurer.

Building on the need for greater transparency, FSRA is also launching an enhanced consumer information hub on its website.  Consumers will be better informed, have access to average premiums and be able to search rate filings easily, which help them make informed decisions about their policy and the insurer they choose.

Getting into a car accident is frightening. Having to explain what happened to your auto insurance company can be even more stressful. Claim specialists spend exorbitant amounts of time and effort to get all the necessary information from the claimant. The more time spent recording key information needed to process a claim, the longer it takes for the claimant to get reimbursed. Justin Lewis-Weber and Theo Patt saw the locked value behind this archaic process, creating Assured to fix it. Assured is an insurtech startup creating claims automation technology to streamline processing insurance claims. The San Francisco-based company has raised money from Global Founders Capital, Neo, and Henry Kravis.

Neo CEO Ali Partovi says, “I love betting on founders like Justin and Theo who dare to reimagine the status quo. Assured is on track to enable a breakthrough that has eluded the insurance world for years, and the team’s industry veterans validate its viability. Assured’s digital claims processing promises a better experience for consumers and a paradigm shift for the industry.

Frederick Daso: What led you to discover the $70B problem of processing insurance claims in the U.S.?

Justin Lewis-Weber: As an entrepreneur, I’ve always sought to disrupt industries that I see as core to how society functions, but have been traditionally overlooked. Insurance is an excellent example of this—car insurance is one of the few private products legally required in the U.S., yet Silicon Valley has paid it relatively little attention.

Before I started Assured, I discussed with a friend in the insurance space who mentioned—too casually—that a full 10% of Property and Casualty premium goes to claims processing, excluding the actual claim payout. Across the U.S., with $680 billion of premium written annually,

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — In the wake of the fatal shooting of a federal judge’s son in New Jersey, bi-partisan legislation seeks to restrict online access to judges’ personal information.

Twenty-year-old Daniel Anderl, the son of U.S. District Judge Esther Salas, was shot and killed inside the family’s home on July 19 by a gunman posing as a delivery driver. Salas’ husband, Mark Anderl, was seriously wounded and is recovering. Salas was in another part of the house and wasn’t injured.

The assailant, Roy Den Hollander, was a disgruntled lawyer who had posted anti-feminist screeds and who had a document with information about a dozen female judges around the country. He was involved in a gender bias case before Salas, in which he challenged the U.S. military’s male-only draft registration requirement.

Den Hollander killed himself in upstate New York shortly after shooting Anderl.

Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, who recommended Salas for bench during the Obama administration, announced the Daniel Anderl Judicial Security and Privacy Act on Monday. He was joined by fellow Democratic New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Democratic New Jersey Rep. Mikie Sherrill, who appeared in court before Salas during her years as a federal prosecutor.


Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, chair of the judiciary committee, is co-sponsoring the bill, Menendez said.

The bill would make it illegal for online aggregators to sell or make public personal information about judges and their families, including home addresses, social security numbers and school and employment information. It also would give federal marshals more resources to assess and track threats against judges.

“We may not be able to eliminate hatred from someone’s heart, but what we can do is make sure that men and women who serve on the federal bench don’t make
