GARAGE SECURITY: JUST AS IMPORTANT AS HOME SECURITY

| March 15, 2019

You might think of your attached or detached garage as a storage place or junk room. But, think about the items you have inside the structure? Do you really want to lose them? Do you want to lose your car? If a thief were to gain access to the garage, then they could still cause you to lose a lot of money and security. What can you do, instead, to protect every item inside? Why Garages Face Risks As we gain possessions in life, we often have to move certain items into the garage for storage. Think about expensive bikes and sporting gear, household belongings, Christmas decorations and of course, your car. All these might live in your garage. Yet, by doing so, they might also face theft risks. Garages often contain a lot of valuable belongings in one area. They also might sit to the side of, or even detached from, a home's main structure. They therefore have a fair amount of isolation. Due to facts like these, thieves might see the garage as easy entry or exit points to start a robbery. They might even be able to enter a home through the garage and make a getaway with very little or no detection.

Article | March 20, 2020

Hiring people with skills in machine learning is extremely difficult across industries due to a shortage of talent and skyrocketing demand. But the insurance industry is better positioned than most to overcome this challenge via upskilling. With tens (possibly hundreds) of statistics-minded actuaries already on staff, providing the right tools to nudge them into the world of data science is a small step. Upskilling business staff is also a great way to fill talent gaps, and in many ways, it’s necessary for insurance businesses that want to democratize data science.
