The City Ruck Tour 2018 (CRT18) is a series of 60 friendly Ruck Marches hosted by Operation Enduring Warrior (OEW) and led by select volunteers from OEW’s Masked Athlete Team and OEW’s Community Ambassador population. The purpose is to perform outdoor fitness in a group setting, while learning more about OEW’s mission, which is to Honor, Empower, and Motivate our nation’s wounded military veterans. On average the distance will be 12 miles, and will vary from city to city, based on the assigned Ruck Leader’s plan. The pace will be moderate (approx. 18-20 minutes per mile), and the group will move together as one team. Short breaks will occur as needed. The amount of weight you carry in your rucksack is up to you. However, you are required to have two (2) quarts of water, a reflective band or belt on the outside of your ruck, and a headlamp or flashlight. Kid friendly. Dog friendly. There will be a Rally Point (RP) 3-4 miles from the End-Point, for any late comers to join in for the final miles. Upon conclusion of the ruck march, there will be a “Circle of Trust” closing ceremony where you will hear a testimony directly from one of our Adaptive Athlete honorees, or participating military veteran. Prepare to be inspired. Everyone in the circle will receive a CRT patch, and probably a hug! This year’s Tour is adopting a special theme…Veterans reaching out to Policemen! OEW will lead the nationwide effort in providing much needed relief to our hurting Law Enforcement Officer community. OEW challenges you to embrace this initiative. Every CRT city will have policemen rucking with us. We will hear their stories. We will demonstrate our support. We will show our respect. We will express our gratitude for the thankless and dangerous job they perform. OEW is helping launch a “Task Force Blue” (name pending approval) police services organization that will do for our injured cops what OEW does for our wounded vets, ultimately saving lives by preventing suicide. All CRT tour stops are FREE to cops (active and retired). Everyone else pays $25. Your registration fee goes directly to OEW’s treasury to fund OEW programs in addition to covering the cost of patches and volunteer Ruck Leader travel cost. Please spread the word, bring some friends! See you there!

NAIC Cybersecurity Model Law Academy New cybersecurity regulations for insurance companies are approaching faster than you might think. The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) approved Insurance Data Security Model Law and the State of New York in March 2017 placed into effect Section 500 of Title 23 of the Official Compilation of Codes. "Computers, software, programming and algorithms are all parts of a cybersecurity program but it is the interaction with the "humans" that makes all the difference in world." NAIC's model law requires insurance organizations to have everything from information security program policies to incident response plans to specific breach notification procedures. Insurance organizations will also have to certify compliance to state insurance commissioners annually. Now that NAIC's model law is heading for adoption, it's important to learn how it might apply to your organization and what you can do now to start preparing for compliance. This event focuses on describing the effective components of a modern cybersecurity management program. The attendees will be prepared to start the evaluation of an existing program. They will then be able to discuss with senior management, the audit committee, and the board of directors how to proceed in improving cybersecurity. We consider five main components of an effective program: data, control implementation, verification, breach preparedness and risk management. This comprehensive training course is for anyone who wants to have a strong base of knowledge and understanding of the essentials of cybersecurity management. This timely, two day CPE training seminar is designed for the project director, project leader and individuals who have to create effective cybersecurity program and the related documents for an insurance organization. Follow the below links for further detail information:. Seminar Highlights. Learning Objectives. Key Issues on the Agenda Each attendee will receive 16 CPE Hours. The retail cost of this CPE seminar is $1,195.00 per attendee.
