The Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers [ABIR] in collaboration with the Bermuda Foundation for Insurance Studies [BFIS] is sponsoring free registration for five Bermuda College students to the International Cyber Risk Management Conference [ICRMC] set to take place in December in Bermuda.
“Helping connect Bermudian students to the growth opportunities in the insurance industry, especially in the field of cyber risk, is critical as we seek to educate our students and prepare them to fill vital roles within the Bermuda market,” said Mr. Huff, President and CEO of ABIR.
“The ICRMC will expose these deserving students to the current and future cyber insurance issues and let them hear from some of the most influential voices in the industry.”
