"Cyber is NOT just an IT Problem" - Dom Vogel

In this episode of Profiles in Risk, I spoke with cybersecurity expert Dom Vogel about Cyber exposure, risk, and insurance. While the big companies are making the headlines, Dom is quick to point out for small and mid-sized companies, cyber is a real and existential threat to their organization. Thus, it's not just an IT issue, cybersecurity must become part of the fabric of the company's entire risk management culture from senior leadership, downwards.

Rank #4: E88 - The Captive Insurance Market With Van Carlson, CEO of Strategic Risk Alternatives

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode is sponsored by IA Path - Unlocking Your Adjusting Superpowers. Go to https://iapath.com

I've been enamored with captive insurance for most of my insurance career. The ability of insureds to get tax benefits for self-insuring exposure solves a lot of problems when they are unable to 1. acquire insurance for their exposure (dangerous product or industry) or 2. are unable to acquire insurance at a reasonable premium (hard market or misunderstood exposure). In this episode, I discuss all things captive with Van Carlson of Strategic Risk Alternatives

Rank #6: E69 - Jeff Arnold: Insurance Monopoly; The Art of Buying & Selling Agencies

Podcast cover
Read more

Jeff Arnold is the President of RightSure Insurance Group and the author of the book The Art of The Insurance Deal. Jeff spoke with Tony and me about how he locates, finances and buys insurance agencies. We discussed things that can blow up a deal, how sometimes, purchased agencies do not end up being a good fit and in some cases, those same agencies need to be sold to other buyers that can make them a good fit. 

Some important considerations when buying an agency are:

- is it a good fit?
- how should the agency be valued?
- how should the price be financed?
- what are the responsibilities of the sellers upon the sale?
- how do you integrate the newly acquired staff and IT?

Rank #9: E89 - Randy Schwantz, Author, Sales Trainer & Creator of The Wedge

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode is sponsored by IA Path - Unlocking Your Adjusting Superpowers. Go to https://iapath.com

My first experience with Randy Schwantz was at the first agency I worked at. All the corner office producers had The Wedge in their bookcases. In fact, in every successful agency I ever worked at had a copy of The Wedge. Coincidence? Nope.

Randy Schwantz is considered one of the best insurance production trainers. The Wedge production system focuses on the biggest problem for producers...regardless of your product or service, most insurance buyers already have a relationship with an agent/broker and are much more likely than not to be satisfied. The Wedge is a process to "wedge" your way into that relationship so that you can better sell your solutions. We discuss this and a lot more in this episode of Profiles in Risk.

This episode is sponsored by Insurance Nerds Day Go to https://insurancenerdsday.com

Insurance is a wide and vast ecosystem. We take things for granted. When I was told there was a tech company handling experience modification factors for workers compensation, my first instinct was why? I thought this was a government/regulatory function. As with many of my assumptions, I was wrong. In this episode, I spoke with Scott Knowles of Modgic. Modgic allows those dealing within workers compensation to take more control over the experience modification rating, checking for accuracy, and generating key insights for all stakeholders.
