Course Description:

This seminar will survey the major sources of law with respect to privacy concerns relevant to the insurance industry.  The seminar begins with a description of some of the current issues in privacy and a view of the statistics showing consumer concern about (and dissatisfaction with the current state of) privacy issues.  
            The single largest segment of the seminar focuses on federal law, particularly HIPAA as it pertains to medical records.  Insurance industry personnel, whether working primarily in life and health or property and casualty, frequently encounter medical information (especially in the claims arena) that may be subject to privacy requirements.  Additionally, this segment will explain the genesis of the anti-sharing and opt-out rules and privacy protections of the Gramm Leach Bliley Act and the regulations implementing GLBA, along with a few remarks about the Fair Credit Reporting Act.  
            From there, the seminar turns to a discussion of state law.  A brief description of the privacy statutes and regulations that can impact employment records introduces this section, as it demonstrates the interplay between federal and state laws.  The seminar then turns to the common law development of the tort of invasion of privacy and related matters.
The seminar’s other major section reviews the risk management aspects of a privacy policy, not only for agencies themselves, but also for their clients.  The major discussion here is how to develop an effective and practical privacy policy.  Another section of the seminar discusses the advent of insurance-related policies to cover security breaches and the like, discussing how these policies differ from standard CGL or BOP type policies.
