InsurTech Insider

Sep 20, 2021

A Message From the Editor

A common conversation among insurance-technology professionals pits incumbent carriers against startups, and agents and brokers against digital, direct-to-consumer insurers. But it might be helpful to pull back the lens a bit, which is exactly what contributor Sam J. Friedman does in his column today as the veteran journalist reflects on 40 years of covering insurance. Today’s newsletter also looks at the impact of deepfakes on the industry, relays top trends highlighted during Applied Net 2021, and lists the year’s biggest cyber insurance carriers.

– Executive Editor Elana Ashanti Jefferson
