Meet Advisen's Cyber Commission

Cyber Risk Industry Person of the Year - USA and London - This prestigious award recognizes and shows the entire community’s gratitude to 2 key players in the cyber risk sector who – through dedication, foresight and leadership – have enhanced and developed the treatment of cyber risk through the past year. The 2 winners will be executives operating in each of the USA and London.

Cyber Risk Event Response Team of the Year - When a cyber event happens, the teams that help companies navigate through the incident are worth their weight in gold. This award will honor a cyber services team with forensics, investigations, PR/communications and/or notification expertise that has offered outstanding support in the face of a 2019 cyber breach.  

Cyber Risk Pre-Breach Team of the Year - Practice makes perfect... There is huge value in preparing for the worst, and making your best defense into offense in the face of an incident. This award will honor a cybersecurity consultancy team or corporation that has successfully prepared and mitigated loss pre-breach.

Cyber Risk Disrupter of the Year - This award recognizes a force of change – a firm or person or innovation that made a significant impact in how the cyber market approaches this evolving risk. The winner will have shaken things up for the industry in a positive way. They will have developed a new way to measure, manage or finance risk, a more effective means to handle losses, a new method to underwrite or distribute insurance, or made their mark on the way insurance policies are written. The winner’s contributions from 2019 will have helped illuminate a new path for the cyber world to follow in the coming years.

Cyber Risk Model of the Year - The winner of this category will be a corporation or a team whose specific predictive model, probabilistic model, or score has made an outstanding contribution to improving the way that cyber risk is quantified in the past year. 

Cyber Service Vendor of the Year - The winner of this award category will be a corporation or a team who has demonstrated leadership and innovation in providing solutions to today's top cyber threats. The winner will have demonstrated commitment to understanding and mitigating cyber threats in business.

Cyber Newcomer of the Year - This is a crowded space and it’s hard to get noticed as a newcomer in the cybersecurity or insurance sector. This award is specifically designed to recognize a start-up operation from 2019 that has made a real impact on how cyber threats are identified, quantified or mitigated. The winner will have demonstrated a refreshingly new way of doing business, a technological breakthrough or a particularly interesting partnership of skills to make a splash in 2019. Nominees must include a link to a press release, confirming their launch in 2019.

Cyber Reinsurer or Reinsurance Broker of the Year - With trillions of dollars of cyber limit at play and untold potential for ‘silent’ exposures to produce claims, the backstop of a strong reinsurance program is becoming increasingly crucial to underwriting cyber insurance. This award will recognize an outstanding reinsurer or reinsurance broker that has gone above-and-beyond in 2019 to partner with carriers to offer adequate limits for cyber clients.

Cyber Law Firm of the Year - Law firms are an integral part of this fast-changing landscape – from providing pre and post-breach coaching services to deciphering complex cyber laws and insurance policies – your law firm is often the most trusted advisor to companies and insurers alike when an incident occurs. This award recognizes a law firm that has been unparalleled in its work within the cyber insurance space in 2019. 

Cyber Risk Retail Broking Team of the Year - This award recognizes the efforts of a dedicated, innovative retail broking team that has worked tirelessly in the past year to expand understanding of cyber risk insurance in the wider marketplace. The winner will have expanded the cyber sector either by a new sales technique or initiative, investing in teams of experts, or by having the best take-up rate in the market.

Cyber Risk Wholesale Broking Team of the Year - This award recognizes the efforts of a dedicated, innovative wholesale broking team that has worked tirelessly in the past year to expand understanding of cyber risk insurance in the wider marketplace. The winner will have expanded the cyber sector either by a new sales technique or initiative, investing in teams of experts, or by having the best take-up rate in the market.
