Insurance broker Gallagher has welcomed three new cyber specialists to its Birmingham office to further strengthen its cyber risk management expertise.
Gallagher’s Birmingham office, based on Newhall Street, looks after a range of UK clients’ risk management and insurance needs.
Jay Lucas joins the team as Cyber Risk Technical Lead, having previously worked as a Cyber Security Specialist at Nuneaton-based firm IntaForensics, and having spent sixteen years prior to this working for Leicestershire Police.
Stephen Randles and John Clarke join the team as Cyber Risk Consultants, with Stephen joining from manufacturer McLaren Automotive and John joining from insurance broker Clearview Credit and Financial Risks Limited.
Johnty Mongan, Cyber Risk Consultant, Gallagher, said: “As businesses become more reliant on their digital capability, in part driven by the increase in remote working as a result of COVID-19, ensuring they have a high level of protection against cyber-attacks, and identifying ways in which common cyber security risks can be mitigated against, is now an important consideration for companies of all sizes.
“There isn’t a one size fits all approach to cyber security, and our practice plays a crucial role in helping organisations identify, mitigate and respond to any cyber risk they might be facing, and ensuring they have appropriate insurance cover in place should they fall victim to cyber criminals.
“Our new hires are prime examples of our commitment to attracting the West Midlands top talent to meet the growing demand for dedicated cyber risk management expertise.”
