Date and Time: October 08, 2019 1 p.m. ET - 2 p.m. ET


Protecting our customers against cyber threat  is expected to be a source of job creation and increased specialization in the p & c insurance industry. While the global cyber insurance market is still in its early development, there are several factors that are pointing to a steep growth trajectory including:

  • increased frequency and impact of cybercrime

  • global insurance premiums expected to reach $12 billion by 2020.

The continued expansion of cyber insurance products will have impact on traditional operational roles in risk management and underwriting, but could also see emergence of new roles focused on cyber risk within the industry’s workforce.

This webinar is best suited for early to mid-career professionals who want to better understand specialty lines opportunities, want to hear real career stories to inspire them, and are seeking to maximize their own career potential.

Did you know that protecting consumers against cyber threats is expected to be an important source of job creation in the P&C insurance industry in the coming years? While the global cyber insurance market is still in its infancy, several factors suggest a steep growth trajectory, with cybercrime on the rise, and global insurance premiums expected to reach C$12 billion by 2020.

An expansion in cyber insurance could support jobs ranging from traditional occupations in risk management and underwriting, to non-traditional occupations such as cyber risk specialists.
