Check out this Interview with Jussara Federici and find out how the CCIS course steered her career.

Jussara is a seasoned Financial Lines Professional at Liberty Specialty Markets in Brazil and has over 10 years of experience in the insurance and reinsurance markets across Latin America. We interviewed Jussara to understand what her goals for professional growth in cyber insurance consisted of before embarking on the Certified Cyber Insurance Specialist (CCIS) course and to find out where she is now in her career.

How did you get into the Cyber Insurance Industry?

With a decade of experience in Financial Lines, I ventured into the cyber insurance field two to three years ago. Initially, I joined my company’s Cyber Developer team, and last year I transitioned into underwriting cyber policies. 

Why Choose
Cyber Insurance Academy?

We are the global standard for accredited cyber insurance certification, with +4,000 Members from +40 countries.

What do you consider to be a critical factor to achieve true professional growth in cyber insurance?

In my view, a critical factor is the relative newness of the cyber insurance industry compared to other products. The limited availability of actuarial data poses a significant challenge. Moreover, the ever-evolving nature of cyber risks demands constant vigilance. Each day brings new discoveries, coverages, and emerging threats.

What brought you to the Certified Cyber Insurance Specialist (CCIS) course?

As a cyber underwriter, I am committed to continuously learning about this product and was looking to advance my cyber insurance education. I extensively researched cyber courses related to the Insurance Industry and discovered CCIS training on LinkedIn. After a fruitful call with Asaf, the CTO, to understand the course objectives, I realized it perfectly aligned with my projections for professional growth and decided to pursue my cyber insurance training with the CCIS Course. 

Can you give an example of a cyber insurance case you’ve worked on and how the CCIS  training helped you navigate it?

Although I cannot disclose specific cases, undergoing my cyber insurance education with the CCIS course has undeniably propelled my proficiency in underwriting cyber policies. I now approach my work with heightened confidence. The comprehensive cyber insurance training provided by the Cyber Insurance Academy has deepened my understanding of risks, threats, coverages, and the best assessment tools available.

What do you predict the state of the cyber insurance market will be in 3 years’ time?

I anticipate substantial growth within the cyber insurance market over the next three years. In Brazil, for instance, we have already witnessed a fourfold increase since 2020, with cyber total premiums surging from USD 8.2M to USD 34.7M in 2022. Additionally, the escalating cyber threats necessitate our constant vigilance and continuous updating to effectively address evolving risks.


Now is the time to seize the opportunity and position yourself at the forefront of the cyber insurance industry. Join Jussara and countless other Academy graduates in advancing your career through the Certified Cyber Insurance Specialist (CCIS) course. Now is the time to get ahead and to Stay Relevant in an ever-changing cyber threat landscape.
