Cyber Risk: Where do Insurers fit in?

Intake Opening Soon 4:00 - 8:00pm Face-to-face

A 2-hour CPD Session followed by a 2-hour Networking Event.

Join us for a 2-hour CPD session delivered by CII trainer, Mr Neil Park, to be followed by a networking event sponsored by CII in close collaboration with the Malta Insurance Institute.

Venue: Carlson Suite, Radisson Blu Resort, St Julians


The threat posed by cyber risks to organisations continues to evolve and the insurance market develops its cyber insurance products and pricing to cater for this exposure.

In this session Mr Park gives an overview of how cyber insurers help their customers reduce and recover from cyber threats.

Course Topics

  • The nature and types of cyber threats – how they are developing and changing
  • Cyber claims examples
  • Financial protection provided under stand alone cyber policy
  • Pre and post loss risk management services provided by cyber insurers
  • Recent developments in the cyber insurance market

Learning Objectives

By the end of  the workshop participants will be able to:

  • Describe the nature and types of emerging cyber threats
  • Explain how legal and regulatory developments impact cyber exposure
  • Describe some typical cyber claims
  • Explain what financial protection insurers provide to customers under a stand alone cyber policy
  • Explain what services cyber insurers provide to help customers both reduce their risks and recover quickly from cyber attacks
  • Identify current and future developments in the cyber insurance market

Assessment Questions and Answers

In line with MFSA requirements, a short multiple-choice assessment will be provided by the trainer towards the end of the session. A Certificate of Attendance will be awarded to all students who attend the CPD (duration will be included on certificate). A Certificate of Achievement will be awarded to those who sit for the assessment and are successful (pass mark 60%).


Finally lectures in person and with relevant and useful content. Foreign lecturers can give us a broader picture of the risks we are faced with. Since our market is so small we can learn a lot from the larger markets. Keep up the good work.

Overall it was very interesting and straight to the point. The examples given made it easier to relate and understand what the class of insurance offers especially in comparison with other classes of insurance. Well done and look forward to the next one.
