What to Expect from EPIC
Public entities face challenges that are very different than those of the private sector and it’s important that you select an insurance and risk management partner who understands these differences and has worked effectively with other clients in the public sector. Here are just a few of the areas where proper support is crucial.
- Annual budgeting consultation to make sure that your insurance program is correctly funded in each annual budget. A shortfall in this area can be devastating, as there is rarely anywhere to go to make up for any unbudgeted or under-budgeted needs.
- Cyber Liability, Privacy, and Fidelity – since most public sector business is highly visible and accountable to the public, you face a significant reputational, public relations and fiduciary challenge in the event of a security breach. A strong risk management and contingency plan including appropriately structured insurance coverage is critical.
- Federal, state and local legislation and government regulations are constantly changing and must be closely monitored and assessed to be certain that your insurance and risk management programs remain in compliance.
In today’s dynamic business and legislative environment, EPIC has the answers to all of your insurance, risk management and employee benefits consulting questions. We look forward to sharing these answers with you.
