On the heels of reports coming out of Washington on the government’s scramble to protect the country’s power grid from cybercriminals, CSC reports the launch of an Insurance Cybersecurity Advisory Council for life insurance and annuity providers and property/casualty insurers. The goal of the council is to facilitate the development of best practices and technology strategies that effectively mitigate the risk of cyber attacks on the insurance industry.

Comprising business and IT executives representing a cross-section of insurance companies, the group will also collaborate with CSC to promote awareness and information-sharing throughout the industry. The Council's first meeting is slated for January 2012 in Washington, D.C.
