T-Mobile’s Source Code Is Hacked+ Why 5G and hacking are going to be a cyber nightmare going forward
So you are thinking to yourself, who cares that T-Mobile’s source code was hacked and what does the world moving towards 5G have to with problems with cyber hacking? Or more importantly, what does it mean for me and my customers? Well, according to Krebs on Security and Property Casualty360, as 5G and the physical domain world collide, it’s going to give hackers more opportunities to collect data, to worm their way into your private information and give them broader access your customer’s data. It’s time for your small and medium size customers to take note and protect themselves by getting a cyber policy as soon as possible, or at the very least, at renewal. Because if a corporation as big and data-security driven as T-Mobile can have their info hacked into, then it truly can happen to anyone at anytime in the near future.

Who wants LIQUOR liability?
We are excited to let you know that we have a new brokerage market for liquor liability in Alaska! They are new to the state, but they are jumping in with both feet. Currently, they have quoting available for monoline liquor and packages with general liability. They are working on getting both the packaged property, and an excess liability offering onboard as well in the near future. Since they are a brokerage market rather than binding, please give them a bit more lead time on your submissions. We are very happy to find a new solution with others exiting the Alaska marketplace and we hope they come to realize what we already know, that Alaska is the best! Send all new business requests to firstname.lastname@example.org
Commercial Rates Increasing
Just like gas prices and everything else in the world, commercial insurance rates are also increasing, but not at the levels that they have been over the past few years. In this article from Insurance Business Magazine, rates have only increased by 11% in Q1, but that still isn’t going to be an easy story to sell to consumers.

Liquor Dad jokes this week:
“Dad, how do you know if someone is an alcoholic?”
Dad: “You see those cars over there son? An alcoholic would see eight instead of four. ”
“Dad, there’s just two cars.”
Eminem is working as a bartender when he notices his alcoholic friend walk in.
He orders a drink, so Eminem reluctantly pours him one.
When he’s done, he asks Eminem for another serving.
Eminem slams his hands on the bar and tells him, “You only get ONE SHOT.”
