Ventiv has elevated the CISO’s role; why should risk and insurance managers care?

Earlier today, Ventiv Technology announced that the role of chief information security officer (held by yours truly) has been elevated to direct-report status to Ventiv’s chief executive officer, Kathy Burns. I encourage you to read the news release (on our website and on the newswire where we distributed it). In the release, we explain exactly why we’ve made this move and why we think it’s so important for our customers in the risk, insurance and safety community.

In this blog post, I’d like to give a little more background on why we’ve made this organizational change. In a nutshell, information security has always been important to Ventiv; we are the only provider in our market with a CISO, and this move takes us to the next level.

I’m frequently involved in sales presentations to prospective clients (as well as to existing clients), who usually ask some very good questions about data security/privacy and Ventiv’s cloud-based application and data hosting. We often hear similar questions at industry events and meetings, in the trade press and on message boards. The 3SIXTY blog seems like a good place to share some of these questions and Ventiv’s answers to them.

6 advantages of unifying data into a risk management information system


Unifying_data_RMISIf you’re anything like me, you’ll enjoy having everything in one place. And, when I speak with clients they often tell me that having all their risk and insurance data in one place is the biggest benefit of using our risk management information system. 

So, in this blog post I wanted to highlight some of the key advantages that unifying all your risk and insurance data in one system can have, rather than using a variety of databases and spreadsheets.

The Daily Show: dashboard reporting from your risk management system

Risk managers have email, and they have smart phones and Facebook accounts. They may even own an app or two (or two hundred) and dabble with tablet devices and e-readers. We may not go so far as calling them techies, but they understand how technology empowers them, both at home and on the job. It makes sense then that more and more of our risk management clients are asking for their own risk management system dashboards in order to generate their own executive-grade reports – for themselves and for their bosses.

Ease of access to risk data: ‘Try to do that with a spreadsheet’

"Try to do that with a spreadsheet." If risk managers need a mantra in the age of analytics and big data, they could repeat that, over and over, to themselves and to anyone else in their organization who will listen.

Believe-it-or-not tales of RMIS risk data consolidation

Despite the availability of advanced risk management software, companies today are still using dated methods for handling risk data. A global real estate company, for instance, excels at developing a portfolio of commercial, multifamily and residential properties yet it struggles at building its own risk management information system. Until the decision was made to turn to a RMIS to achieve data consolidation, this client had been using a complicated system of spreadsheets and databases to handle risk data.
