Forty risk management professionals, many of which were first-timers, attended this year’s Legislative Summit held June 8-9 in Washington, D.C.

The topics of interest this year were the Policyholder Protection Act and the various pieces of legislation that would enact a federal standard for data breach notification. Attendees met with over 50 Congressional offices to urge passage of both proposals. These meetings were critical in voicing the position of RIMS and the positive effects these bills would have on risk management professionals and their organizations, if passed. 

On the first day of the event, attendees participated in educational sessions on the policy issues and the lobbying dos and don’ts. Attendees were joined by Christian Fjeld, Sr. Counsel for the Senate Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Insurance; and Paul Nagle, Chief Counsel for the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade, who walked the group through the politics surrounding the data breach notification proposals in both the House and Senate.

On day two, Patrick Satelin, Legislative Director for Rep. Peter Welch, joined the group for breakfast to discuss the Representative’s reasons for sponsoring data breach legislation and his outlook on the issue.
