Chesapeake, VA and Richmond, VA — (October 13, 2020) – Sera-Brynn, LLC, a cybersecurity firm, and the Independent Insurance Agents of Virginia, Inc. (IIAV), a premier association for independent insurance agents, today announced their strategic partnership. The partnership enables IIAV to offer Sera-Brynn’s CHECKLIGHT™ solution to its members and their customers.
CHECKLIGHT is a new service that combines state-of-the-art security technologies, threat intelligence, a $250,000 insurance-backed cyber threat warranty, and Sera-Brynn consulting expertise.
IIAV represents some 500 independent agencies and branches throughout the state of Virginia and more than 5,000 licensed independent agents.
“CHECKLIGHT is an early warning alarm for a database breach and the sooner you know of the intruder, the sooner you can mitigate any possible loss or misuse of the data,” states IIAV President & CEO Robert Bradshaw. “For agencies, even if they have their data with a third-party vendor, CHECKLIGHT is a critical early warning system and essential for commercial businesses. IIAV is proud to partner with Sera-Brynn on this new product.”
“Our timing couldn’t be better…the partnership with IIAV directly addresses the Commonwealth of Virginia’s new Insurance Data Security Act,” states Sera-Brynn CEO Rob Hegedus. “CHECKLIGHT will make it easy for Virginia insurance professionals to meet the new requirements concerning the monitoring, reporting and disclosure requirements relating to the personal information of insureds across the state.”
