Welcome to the IT IG Website! We are glad you are visiting and encourage you to fully explore the site. IT is highly integrated in the insurance industry, and is becoming more so every day. Whether a “business” or an “IT” person, you can benefit from increasing your knowledge of how IT is used to enable the business of insurance. The IT IG’s mission is to connect insurance and IT professionals to focus on trends and issues at the intersection of business and technology. The IT IG provides helpful resources and a network of others who share interests in technology within the insurance industry, helping IT IG and all CPCU Society members gain from the collective knowledge and experience of the IT IG member group.
The opportunities for engagement in the IT IG are as broad and constantly evolving as IT use within the insurance industry. Whether your interests are in current, emerging, or future potential technologies the IT IG has something for you. Big Data, Cyber, Internet of Things, Autonomous Vehicles, and Drones are just a small sampling of topics being explored through seminars, webinars, articles, and collaborative discussion on LinkedIn. We appreciate and value your participation and input. If you are interested in how you can further engage with the IT IG, select “Volunteer” from the drop-down menu in the “Get Involved” tab to learn more about the numerous ways you can become involved in the IT IG.
