The Cyber COPE Insurance Certification℠ (CCIC) provides Chubb brokers and agents with an understanding of industry best practices in cyber security risk management, governance and operations. In this program students will learn what high-performing advisors need to know in order to thrive in their roles, including how to interact with executive leadership of potential customers, how to provide analysis and support in effective cyber risk management, and approaches for building and maintaining strong relationships with prospective cyber risk insurance clients.

The eight-month program imparts applicable training, including topical discussions on current cyber security risk challenges and mitigation practices. Learning objectives are met through a combination of expert faculty instruction, business case analyses, and discussions with thought leaders in the field. The CCIC is developed and delivered by Chubb and Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College of Policy & Information Systems.
