At Scrivens, we recognize the importance of adapting to an ever-changing world. Over the past 87 years, we have continued to evolve as new technologies and needs of our customers emerge.

As with new technology, new risks also emerge. Cyber threats have been an ever increasing risk to all industries. Ole Jensen explains how your business is likely affected by two recent cyber risks.

It's important to protect your business from cyber threats and the best way to do this is to keep all of your devices up to date.

The construction industry is seeing some exciting trends for 2018 including 3D printing, drones, and more! You can read about Ole's 2018 Construction Industry Trends here.

Baby boomers are approaching the age of retirement but before your employees retire, they will require additional safety precautions. Learn how to encourage your older workers to stay safe on the job.

With any contract, whether home, auto, business, or life insurance, it's vitally important to ensure the application process is completed with accuracy and precision.

As you move through the stages of life, it is very important to notify us of any changes that may impact your insurance products. Some examples of important lifestyle changes are:

   - Recently Married

   - New Children and/or Dependents

   - Changed Jobs

   - Retired

Not only can these affect your home and auto insurance but also your life insurance. For example, when your mortgage is paid off, you may no longer need a term life insurance policy and opt for long-term care insurance.

Most people understand the risks of property theft, however Karen Spencer explains how identity theft could lead to you losing your home.

Two investment opportunities have flourished over the past year and Ken Browness assures you that FOMO is a common emotion but to stay focused on your financial plan.

As the world around us continues to change, it's important we all continue to adapt. We have made some software and operational changes of our own but even with these changes, our staff continues to provide the excellent service you expect.

As always, we urge you to provide feedback on our services by speaking with your representative or emailing

From all of us at Scrivens, have a safe and happy Spring season.
