Secure Your Information the Right Way + Modernizing the Independent Insurance Agent
You won't have to look too hard to find news of a cyber security incident. They're all over. Whether it's ransomware, network intrusions, or data breaches, these events are occurring on a more regular basis. Rather than stand idly by waiting for something like that to happen to his company, our guest today took a proactive approach to data security. We're joined today by Jon Corrin. He's the co-founder and CEO of Xilo, a software platform that helps independent insurance agencies move into the digital era. Their platform enables modernized workflows, online data intake for new insurance customers, and integrations with carrier quoting systems We begin our conversation discussing how he found his way into insurance, how he's helping independent agencies thrive during the virtual work revolution, and how Technology startups can utilize online insurance platforms to find innovative ways to cover their business risk. Then we dive into the deep end of Cyber security. Jon walks me through Xilo's data security philosophy, shares tips around how you should be framing cyber security in your business, what steps you should take to gain certification around your security practices, and the risks you face by not putting security top of mind. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/insurance-requirements/message

008: Faster, More Efficient Insurance with Ron Glozman
I'm excited to welcome Ron Glozman, CEO of Chisel.ai, to the studio. He quite literally built his company while he should have been studying at university. The difference between him and the rest of us is that the software he was building would study for him. Yeah, he taught his computer to read his textbooks and produce a chapter outline he could then study for his exams. Sounds like every college student's dream! We then dive into how he grew Chisel.ai from that first iteration, breakdown Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in terms even I can understand, and how that helps the insurance industry become much more accurate and efficient. Before we wrap up, I asked Ron to share some advice to founders seeking funding during a pandemic.

002: The Best Insurance Fit with Maria Goy
There are hundreds of insurance companies out there to choose from. Even once you've narrowed down which one to work with, you next need to sift through the many coverage options they provide. It's like dinning at an all you can eat buffet… Do you need to fill up your plate to feel like you got your money's worth or is it okay just to choose a few things from the options to feel satisfied.Maria Goy, Co-founder and COO of Spot, joins me today to discuss their insurance buffet experience. Maria shares how they partnered with an insurance broker that helped them cut through the noise and the value of buying an insurance program that met their startup's needs.On the same note, Spot's mission is to build a suite of personal insurance products that people want to buy, the way they want to buy it. They are providing a level of coverage that is not met with the all or nothing approach of today's health insurance market.We wrap up by exploring ways that the insurance buying process can be more productive (spoiler alert: there's a lot of paperwork) and how insurance companies can best position themselves to retain their customers long-term.
