C&S Events: On Technology 2017

New York City has gone from analog to digital in the blink of an eye, and now self-driving cars coming down Broadway seems within reach. City & State’s On Technology forum brought together industry leaders to talk about those changes from a government and policy perspective.

The event took place on March 9th, and included panels of experts in the field.  The first discussion included New York City’s Chief Digital Officer Sree Sreenivasan and Chief Technology Officer Miguel A. Gamiño, Jr.

The conversation was moderated by City & State’s City Hall reporter Sarina Trangle and we bring it to you here in its entirety.

C&S Presents: Hacking Insurance with LICONY’s Mary Griffin

Banks and insurance companies are absolute goldmines of information and prime targets for hackers. New York’s Department of Financial Services just introduced new state-level cybersecurity regulations to make sure banks and insurance companies are using best practices to keep consumer’s information – and money – safe. Mary Griffin, President of the Life Insurance Council of New York also known as LICONY, joined us to discuss. She represents almost 100 insurance firms across the state that will be affected by the new regulations.
