Cyber Insurance Course – New General CE

Cyber Insurance Course – New General CE

Cyber Insurance Course

3 General/Adjuster – Technical CE Credits

New Cyber Insurance Course now available to all ILScorp General CE and Adjuster CE Subscribers

During this online course we will begin by discussing recent changes made to the Personal Information Protection Electronic and Documents Act. This is a natural spring board when discussing cyber insurance with clients.  Next, we will briefly look at today’s cyber insurance market place to review common challenges.

Then we will roll up our sleeves and get into the actual coverage forms most common in our market.

Data Compromise Coverage, Computer Attack Coverage and Network Security Liability Coverage are the three major coverage form topics

Cyber insurance coverages are some of the newest innovations in the insurance industry.  As the criminal element becomes more proficient, the insurance industry has responded.  As with all new products, there will be challenges and changes forthcoming. This course looks at a few of the major issues facing us today.

Cyber losses are really just a new type of crime loss.  Some policies are beginning to include cyber losses within their wordings.  Many are just silent on the topic.  Because automation is playing a roll in many parts of business operations, insurers may be inadvertently providing coverage unintentionally.  Broad insuring agreements in both property and liability wordings may be the culprit.

Education

What are the educational requirements to become a general insurance agent?

To become licensed as a general insurance agent, the applicant must successfully pass the qualifying examination for general insurance. Examination results are valid for one year and must be forwarded to Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) when applying. FSCO does not conduct the examinations. General agents are exempt if they have a Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) designation or successfully passed the equivalent RIBO exam.

Exam Preparation Course

I am a new agent, how do I apply for a general insurance agent license?

New agents should contact their sponsoring company to initiate an online application on their behalf. New agents are unable to submit an application without a sponsor.

Renewal

How do I renew my General insurance agent license?

Insurance agents’ licenses are renewed every two years. Agents must renew their license within 60 days prior to the expiry date on their existing license.
Applicants who have been unlicensed for two or more years will have to re-qualify as a new agent, including redoing the General Insurance examination.

All renewal applications are submitted online via Licensing Link and are initiated by the sponsoring insurer.

Payment/Fees

How much is the fee to obtain/renew my general insurance agent license?

The fee for an insurance agent license and/or to renew an insurance agent license is $150. This fee covers a two-year license period.

Sponsorship

General insurance agents require sponsorship at all times to maintain their license.

Transfer of Sponsorship

I no longer wish to remain with my sponsor. Can I move to another sponsoring company?

Sponsored agents can transfer out of their sponsorship and move to another sponsor.
The current sponsor should terminate the license online so the new sponsoring company can pick up the license and transfer to their company.
Please contact your current and new sponsor for information as the transfer application is created by the sponsor on behalf of the agent.

How much is the fee to transfer my license to a different sponsoring company?

The fee is $50 to transfer your license from one sponsoring company to another. The fee is paid online through Licensing Link. The application is created by the sponsoring company. Please contact your sponsor on how to submit an application.

Terminations

I am a sponsored general insurance agent and wish to terminate/surrender my license. How do I notify FSCO of this?

Sponsored agents shall have their sponsoring company submit an online termination on their behalf. Please contact your sponsoring company to terminate your license.

I want to terminate/surrender my license, but I do not want to lose the qualifications in case I decide to come back into the industry. Are there any provisions, time frames in which I can reinstate my license without taking the qualifying exam again?

Agents have the option of terminating their license and may have their license within two years of the date of termination/expiry (whichever comes first) without having to re-qualify.
Applicants who have been unlicensed for two or more years will have to re-qualify as a new agent, including re-writing the qualifying exam. Please contact your sponsor to terminate your license.
