Maya is the Head Cyber and Digital Solutions at Swiss Re. She has three boys at home and holds a PhD in Soil Physics. //
"Cyber risk is the flipside of Digitization. Parts of the risk can be insured and the value of the insurance sits as much in risk transfer as in risk management services."

Petra is the Founder and Chair of the Swiss Cyber Think Tank. She leads and moderates three sessions per year to discuss Cyber Risks and Insurability with the members. //
"Where risks are involved, there is requirement for protection through the insurance industry together with security and technology firms.”

Chen is CEO of C2SEC, a startup focusing on predicting and quantifying cyber risks. Previously he was Director of Cyber Security of Microsoft. //
"To change cyber risks from uninsurable to insurable risks, innovative approaches are required. Huge challenges are ahead but we should keep trying."

Tiago is CEO at BinaryEdge AG a company that combines data science and cybersecurity to help their customers understand their risk. //
"Right now, cyberinsurance is a guessing game. The way insurers collaborate with clients/orgs has to change for cyberinsurance to succeed"
