Where IT expertise boosts cyber underwriting 

Assessing cyber risks requires approaches that go far beyond traditional insurance. From ransomware to DDoS to phishing, it takes IT expertise to understand not only risks themselves but the accumulation risk arising from a single realised cyber risk.

To stay competitive in the field of cyber (re)insurance, Munich Re has launched a global cyber expert programme unique in the insurance market, the Cyber Pool. The induction programme helps experienced IT professionals to acquire an additional qualification in underwriting and grow a career in the risk industry.

The Cyber Pool in a nutshell

15 to 18 months
duration
Work-and-learn training with department rotation
1 team project and additional off-the-job training
1 assignment abroad
The cyber expert pool gave me a remarkable opportunity to get my techie feet wet in the insurance business. You rotate through various cyber departments at Munich Re and experience first-hand how cyber security and cyber resiliency can be combined with specialised insurance know-how. In this way, we can develop sensible insurance solutions for companies and private individuals.

Where engineers become risk assessors and claims managers

What risks are involved in a construction or technology project? How likely are these risks to occur? Moreover, how much will it cost when they do? 

Munich Re builds on the transferable skills and knowledge of experienced engineers to answer these – and related – questions. To enable engineers to identify and assess risks and damages, Munich Re has created a two-year induction programme that builds on pre-existing engineering knowledge and experience: the Munich Re Engineering Pool.

Its hands-on approach helps engineers familiarise themselves with all aspects of insurance and reinsurance. Mentors support participants in navigating their new career path. The programme is challenging: participating engineers take on full responsibility from day one, handling million-euro projects while completing workshops and seminars.

As an engineering underwriter with Munich Re, you see new projects and technologies on a daily basis. Keeping a balance between an in-depth evaluation and providing the client with a fast response is the big challenge here. The time in the engineering pool prepared me for what our clients really expect from us: tailor-made insurance solutions for complex risks.
