Session details

Simplifying the cyber sell


Marcus Breese, Cyber Class Underwriter, Arch Insurance UK

An engaging and thought-provoking seminar on how brokers can support their clients in building cyber awareness, simplify the cyber message and ask the right questions to make sure their clients’ businesses are prepared for a cyber-attack.

This is particularly topical, with the UK on lockdown due to the Covid-19 crisis and companies moving many day-to-day operations online to function.

Broking the best out of your underwriter
