Lloyd’s convenes global cyber experts for first Cyber Summit

The first Lloyd’s Cyber Summit will today see senior business leaders, policy makers, cyber risk specialists and thought leaders discuss creative solutions for this emerging and interconnected threat.

Cyber is one of the most complex and critical risks threatening national security and businesses today. Tackling this ever-evolving threat requires continued action, collaboration, and an agile approach. As the world’s leading insurance marketplace, Lloyd’s brings together experts who share intelligence, judgement, capital and risk to create a braver, more resilient world.

Today the Lloyd’s market underwrites around one-fifth of the world’s cyber premium, and over 40 syndicates help businesses across the globe improve their cyber security.

Hosted by Lloyd’s Chairman, Bruce Carnegie-Brown, today’s thought-provoking summit platform will demonstrate Lloyd’s expertise and ability to deliver creative cyber risk solutions today for a more resilient tomorrow.

Panel guests include:

The goal of the summit is to highlight the importance of working together to mature the cyber risk class and build a more resilient future.

“There is a compelling need to gather the experts and trusted actors from across government, industry, capital providers, security agencies and the insurance market to address the current and future threats of Cyber.

The responsibility can’t just fall to the industry alone; it’s important that as a collective we collaborate, educate, and intelligently create awareness of the risks associated with cyber.

The Lloyd’s cyber market share, expertise and unique syndication model means our whole market is not only focused on, but also best placed, to mature the class of cyber insurance and ensure a more resilient tomorrow.”
