The recently held 8th Annual Cyber Risk Awards recognizes outstanding performances by individuals, teams, and startups. The Advisen Risk Awards has become the leading networking event on the cyber social calendar. In this event, the awards are determined by “People’s Choice” and leverage Advisen’s vast contact database of insurance professionals who care about Cyber Risk.

What is the Cyber Risk Newcomer Award?

Advisen’s Cyber Risk Newcomer Award was created to give recognition to the company that has made a real impact on how cyber threats are identified, quantified or mitigated. The newcomer needs to demonstrate a refreshingly new way of doing business, a technological breakthrough or a particularly interesting partnership of skills to make a splash in 2020.

The Cyber Insurance Academy, which exhibited a novel method to promote the cyber insurance business is the winner for 2021. The Cyber Insurance Academy opted to focus on education due to the fact that insurance professionals lack fundamental cyber expertise, which affects their ability to market, underwrite, and handle claims if needed.

The Cyber Insurance Academy is a 24/7 online academy that was designed to educate insurance professionals and assist them in building their knowledge, on their journey to becoming certified cyber insurance specialists.


Thank you to everyone who voted for us, and congratulations to the other nominees and winners. We hope to see you all in June 2022 in New York.
