June 23, 2019

The second annual International Cyber Risk Management Conference [ICRMC] Bermuda, presented by Canada’s MSA Research Inc, will take place from December 4 to December 6 at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, following a warm welcome from Business Development Agencyn [BDA] to bring the event back to the island in 2019.

A spokesperson said, “The ICRMC Bermuda program has been designed for corporate risk managers, corporate counsel, auditors, CISOs, CSOs, and CTOs, governance and claims professionals, insurers, reinsurers, insurance brokers and service providers.

“The BDA will once again be signature sponsor of the two-day cyber risk management conference of which the theme is Speaking a Common Language: From On- Boarding to the Board Room.”

“We are very proud to bring ICRMC back to Bermuda where we, with the support of a stellar steering committee, will focus on cyber risk with an emphasis on re/insurance and risk-transfer solutions,” said Joel Baker, President and CEO of both MSA, the leading provider of Canadian insurance financial data, and the National Insurance Conference of Canada.

“Baker and MSA Research COO and EVP, Marilyn Horrick, visited Bermuda over the past week not only to attend the Captives Conference and meet with sponsors and local members of its advisory committee [see photo], but also to speak about their event plans with leaders of the island’s risk-industry groups, including the Bermuda Insurance Management Association [BIMA], the Association of Bermuda International Companies [ABIC], Bermuda Captive Owners’ Association [BCOA], Bermuda International Long Term Insurers and Reinsurers [BILTIR], International Organization of Directors [IoD], Bermuda Broadcasting Corporation [BBC], and the Association of Bermuda Insurers & Reinsurers [ABIR], all eight of whom have come on board as ICRMC Supporting Sponsors.”

“There’s no better location than Bermuda to host our vendor neutral ICRMC event,” commented Baker, “given Bermuda’s central place in the insurance, reinsurance and insurance-linked securities [ILS] arena,” continued Baker, who over several years, has forged relationships with many of the island’s business and industry leaders.

“It aligns extremely well with the aims of the conference which is designed to serve the thought leadership and congregational needs of the global risk management community.”
