Cyber liability professionals can access a new designation program at the Professional Liability Underwriting Society, or PLUS.

The Cyber Professional Liability Practitioner (CPLP) designation builds on PLUS’s Registered Professional Liability Underwriter (RPLU) designation, which more than 3,000 industry professionals have achieved to date, the group noted.

While the RPLU designation indicates a commitment to professional development and to the professional liability industry, the CPLP designation is a specialized designation that allows cyber liability professionals to distinguish themselves further.

PLUS explained that the CPLP designation requires professionals to have experience in the cyber liability insurance industry. Candidates earn this designation by completing five PLUS curriculum modules; attending a virtual Cyber University; and completing the new PLUS breach scenario eLearning course, Held for Ransom. Designees are required to compete at least 12 continuing education credits related to the cyber insurance industry every two years.

PLUS is an international non-profit association with more than 6,000 members worldwide. The group provides educational opportunities and programs on professional liability to enhance the professionalism of its members and the professional liability community as a whole.
