Cyber Insurance – Jeffrey Smith – SCW #24
This week, we welcome Jeffrey Smith, Managing Partner at Cyber Risk Underwriters, to sell us Cyber Insurance, and how he wants to take on the skeptics (e.g. the SCW hosts) about the role that Cyber Insurance plays in security!
Jeffrey founded Cyber Risk Underwriters in 2017 to more efficiently distribute cyber insurance, take advantage of excess cyber insurance capacity to design new derivative products, and develop alternative channels to deliver product to exposed organizations. In this role, Jeffrey is building a business model to better educate clients about the catastrophic nature of cyber security risks, and create a brand reputation evolving around exposure analytics and custom program design. Prior to joining Cyber Risk Underwriters, Jeffrey enjoyed over 25 years of success providing complex insurance and risk financing design, brokerage and relationship management expertise for mid-large corporations, educational institutions, and not-for-profits. He has served many industry verticals including health care, technology, real estate and private equity.
