Cyber Risk Industry Person of the Year - The Americas, EMEA and APAC -These prestigious awards demonstrate the entire community’s gratitude to three 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 three winners will be executives operating in each of the Americas, Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) and Asia-Pacific (APAC) markets.

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 2020 cyber breach.  

Cyber Risk Pre-Breach Team of the Year -Practice makes perfect... There is huge value in preparing for the worst, and the most resilient organizations always plan ahead. This award will honor a cybersecurity consultancy team offering excellent strategies for mitigating loss before a breach.

Cyber Risk Insurtech of the Year -If there were ever an insurance that could be married to the advance of technology – it is Cyber. This award recognizes the firm that has introduced in 2020 a technology or model that offers unique savings, efficiency or risk insights in the cyber risk management arena. 

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 2020 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 2020. Nominees must include a link to a press release, confirming their launch in 2020.

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 2020 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 2020. 

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.

This award recognizes a corporation or team that has demonstrated dedication to developing cyber risk solutions aimed at the unique risks faced by SMEs.

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.
