cyRM: Cyber Insurance Training Course

Better Educate Your Clients, Grow Your Cyber Insurance Line, and Protect Your E & O in Less than 3 Hours

What is Cyber Insurance Training?


Cyber perils already dominate business risk news stories, yet many organizations have limited cyber risk management, and little or no cyber loss insurance. The need is clear and insurance professionals must be ready to solve their client’s concerns.

Cyber Insurance Training was specifically designed for insurance professionals to help them better educate prospective customers, improve protection for their current clients, and take advantage of this quickly growing market.

The Cyber Insurance Training Course provides Certification that an Agent has studied fundamental IT perils, cyber coverages, and risk management. Technology’s continuing evolution challenges every insurance professional to adopt a continuous learning process about IT risks. Insurance professionals should prepare through study and experience, and share their knowledge to help clients protect their assets.

The cyRM Course distills essential cyber risk information and guides Agents, regardless of their overall insurance experience, in steps to establish their authority as informed and educated about Cyber Risk Management and Insurance.
