The theme of the second annual ICRMC Bermuda conference is Speaking a Common Language: From On-Boarding to the Board Room. The carefully curated agenda will focus on tangible takeaways that cyber risk stakeholders can use to strengthen resilience and improve cyber risk communication across their organizations and their supply chains. Bermuda, the ‘World’s Risk Capital’, is the ideal market to host this vendor-neutral gathering of the global risk management community. The ICRMC Bermuda program has been designed for corporate risk managers, corporate counsel, auditors, CISOs, CSOs, and CTOs, governance and claims professionals, insurers, reinsurers, insurance brokers and service providers.

“We are thrilled to once again be partnering with the Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) and an outstanding advisory committee for ICRMC Bermuda,” said Joel Baker, President and CEO of MSA Research, the producer of ICRMC. “As cyber risk is now ranked as one of the top two concerns facing the world, it is vitally important that the risk management community remain vigilant in their efforts”, continued Baker, “and collaborate to address and resolve shared issues surrounding cyber risk.”

Marilyn Horrick, COO and EVP, MSA Research added, “The agenda reflects the growing need for organizations to not only understand and act on their mitigation and risk transfer options, but to also continually assess real cyber exposure, competently recognize compromising cyber incidents, and effectively communicate those across all levels of their organization. Unpacking what it means to have a culture of cyber vigilance,” Horrick continued, “is an important part of the agenda and speaks to every role in an organization from on-boarding to the board room”.

A world-class Advisory Committee comprising of cyber risk experts from the fields of insurance, information technology, law, audit and compliance, governance and public policy has shaped the program for ICRMC Bermuda. The British Overseas Territory is a leading global re/insurance hub and the world’s most significant property casualty market, supplying an estimated 35 percent of capacity for Lloyd’s of London. Bermuda is also the largest domicile for captive insurance and insurance-linked securities.
