Steps You Should Be Taking to Protect Your Clients and Candidates (Insurance)


Our Flintstone days with huge filing cabinets filled with paper client folders are behind us! As nanny agency owners, we have a never-ending amount of documentation flooding our inboxes—CC authorization forms, contracts, family bio’s, etc. Where is your agency storing all of this info? If your answer is in an online database, this session is a must (and if you aren’t yet storing your information online, this session will inspire you to hop on the 21st century train).  Kathryn Aquino will define what a data breach is, identify the four types of protected data, share five risk mitigation efforts every business can implement, and walk us through step-by-step on what to do during a cyber incident. This information is crucial for every business owner as she outlines how you can protect your clients, candidates, and most importantly—your business! Kathryn will talk about cyber insurance (Yes people!! Insurance for data!!), security features/software, and go over some pretty eye-opening statistics on beaches. Sneak Peak: 81% of beaches are caused by weak passwords! We call this a proactive session, because even if a data breach hasn’t happened to you (yet) it truly can happen to anyone without the right preventative measures!


Kathryn Aquino is the 3rd generation to be leading Alpha/Omega Coverage Corp, an independent insurance agency founded in 1979, where she helps clients understand how to protect their hard-earned assets.  Kathryn has taken the freedom that comes with being an independent insurance broker along with the leverage of being a long-established business to offer her clients the best available choices. Under her leadership, Alpha/Omega has developed streamlined processes for client intake and upgraded technology to create a better client experience, maintaining a client retention rate above 97%. Kathryn is the co-founder of Staten IslandHER.

On the weekends, Kathryn can be found running after her two small children, working on her 100-year-old Tottenville fixer-upper, or hiking with her family in NYC’s Greenbelt where her husband is a NYC Parks Department volunteer Trail Steward. As a proud Trustee for the Staten Island Museum, she enjoys sharing the rich local history of her hometown, along with the countless cultural institutions found in New York City.
