19th A2ii-IAIS Consultation Call on "data protection challenges in mobile insurance", 24 November 2016

On the topic: there has been a rapid growth in mobile insurance, especially over the past 5 years. Yet for a domain where so much is happening and where more players (e.g. Mobile Network Operators, technical service providers) and regulators are getting involved, there is still little information about potential risks and corresponding solutions. In particular, the topic of data protection – the regulatory measures taken to protect personal data – has not received much attention.
