ICRMC Bermuda will take place December 6-7, 2018 at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club. Conference programming and registration can be seen at

The theme of the inaugural ICRMC Bermuda conference is Insurance Approaches to Cyber Risk Management. This agenda will focus on cyber risk with an emphasis on reinsurance and risk transfer solutions. 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 is being designed for corporate risk managers, corporate counsel, auditors, CISOs, CSOs, and CTOs, governance and claims professionals, insurers, reinsurers, insurance brokers and service providers.

“The agenda reflects the growing need for risk transfer solutions as part of the arsenal of approaches available to organizations to prepare for and recover from a cyber breach,” says Joel Baker, president and CEO of MSA Research, the producer of ICRMC. “Risk professionals are faced with cyber attacks that are increasingly difficult to prevent, making insurance solutions that are overtly designed to meet this challenge an important component of corporate cyber risk management and business recovery.”

An advisory committee comprising cyber risk experts from the fields of insurance, information technology, law, audit and compliance, governance and public policy are shaping the program for ICRMC Bermuda. The British Overseas Territory is a leading global reinsurance hub and the world’s most significant property casualty market, supplying an estimated 35% of capacity for Lloyd’s of London. Bermuda is also the largest domicile for captive insurance and insurance-linked securities.
