Do you know… what’s covered in a cyber policy? What claims will destroy your clients? How to articulate exposure for every industry? Do you want to MASTER cyber insurance?
Evolve’s Cyber Sales Academy is an all encompassing day of cyber sales education that will dramatically enhance your knowledge, understanding, confidence, and overall ability to sell cyber insurance! Attendees will learn first hand from successful producers, forensic professionals, privacy attorneys, cyber security risk management vendors, business that have had real claims, and Evolve’s team of 30 cyber specialists!
