LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT T hank you for exploring the fall issue of our Risk & Business Magazine. We hope that 2018 has been a productive year for you and your organization. Whatever your growth goals were heading into the year, we hope you’re on track to hit those and make 2018 a resounding success. On a regional basis, there are many exciting growth initiatives taking place in Northwest Indiana. We are fortunate to be a part of helping many individual firms contribute to that growth. In simple terms, our focus is on employing best practices to help clients manage risk and offer world-class employee benefits. Some of those concepts and strategies come from other firms in the region. In many cases, those strategies come from different parts of the United States. Ultimately, our goal is to bring ideas to organizations in Northwest Indiana that help them grow. This publication is a commitment to that goal. Some of the articles we have included are from our local team, and other articles are from national contributors. Our hope is that you can find a couple of good, practical ideas that you and your team can implement to help you continue the solid growth we’re seeing around the region. As you work on your business planning process for 2019, please keep us in mind. We would love to connect and share some detailed stories about how our strategies helped other firms accelerate their growth in 2018 and how we can help you do the same in the year to come. + 28 LITTLE THINGS MAKE BIG THINGS HAPPEN 30 THE BIGGEST THREAT TO YOUR CYBER SECURITY IS YOUR EMPLOYEES Craig Menne, President & CEO GENINS.COM 5
