To attract and nurture promising individuals in the cyber space
< Back to hub

Global reinsurance broker, Gallagher Re, has launched its flagship Cyber Academy, designed to attract and nurture promising individuals in the cyber space, providing them with comprehensive and bespoke training in broking, analytics, and cyber security.

The Gallagher Re Cyber Academy will offer delegates the opportunity to receive best-in-class training while gaining practical experience within a dynamic brokerage environment.

The program, delivered over three years, will be led by industry experts from within Gallagher Re’s Cyber team.

Upon completing the Cyber Academy scheme, candidates will continue their training and development in their chosen specialisation, armed with a strong foundational understanding of cyber risk and on-the-ground experience in broking and analytics.

Ian Kerton, Chief Executive Officer, UK, Gallagher Re, commented, “There is a significant shortage of professionals who possess a comprehensive understanding of cyber (re)insurance, the evolving cyber risk landscape, and data literacy in the market today.

“Recognising this talent gap, our Cyber Academy will provide a three-year foundational program aimed at equipping talented individuals with these essential skills, enabling them to become future leaders in the field of cyber (re)insurance and cyber risk.”

By addressing talent supply and demand challenges, the broker aims to secure a steady influx of candidates into the cyber insurance sector, fostering sustainable growth in the market.

Kerton concluded, “This new initiative – and the interest it has garnered – demonstrates our market-leading cyber reinsurance team’s commitment to taking a long-term perspective and investing in the development of talent. We are all looking forward to welcoming our new joiners and watching them flourish at Gallager Re.”
