ABOUT THE AWARDS

 

The Insurance Insider Cyber Rankings Awards has now finished. Congratulations to our winners!

 

The Cyber Rankings Awards is an event to recognise the London cyber market’s achievements and celebrate its rising stars and most skilled individuals, as well as those service providers that enable underwriters and brokers to do what they do best.


As in previous years, these awards are unlike traditional awards ceremonies where a panel of judges pick who they believe to be the winner of a category.


Our award winners are derived from aggregated data gathered through a new edition of The Insurance Insider’s annual Cyber Rankings survey.


The results are statistically significant – minimum levels of participation are set so as to achieve a maximum error margin of 10 percent of overall scores at a 95 percent confidence level (this means the sample size is sufficiently large to ensure the ranking scores remain unchallenged if the survey were to be run repeatedly).


For the shortlists of each individual award, we picked the top five highest ranked individuals from each company in their respective field. For the company awards, we picked the top five firms that received the highest score for that category.


The winner of each category is simply the individual or company with the highest score made up from their supporters’ votes.
 

WINNERS

Rising Star Broker of the Year

Who is the best rising star broker in the London cyber market? This category is for those brokers with 0-3 years’ cyber broking experience that have impressed their market peers the most.

 

- Freddy Knight, Stackhouse Poland; and

- Medha Shah, Aon

 

Rising Star Underwriter of the Year

Who can claim to be the next up-and-coming underwriter in the city? The winner of this category is an underwriter with 0-3 years’ cyber underwriting experience.

 

- John Sinclair, CFC Underwriting

 

Cyber Law Firm of the Year

There can be no innovative products without first-class legal service providers helping to bring them to market. This award recognises the importance of the legal community to the development of the Cyber offering and names the firm that has added the most value to the cyber class in 2019.

 

- DAC Beachcroft

 

Cyber Risk Service Provider of the Year

Pre- or post-loss the market relies on technical specialists for its smooth running and continued growth. Perhaps a company has produced a valuable underwriting tool, or a novel and efficient method of identifying or remedying cyber security problems? Or maybe it is the go-to technical adjuster for extraordinarily complex major losses? It doesn’t matter – if it is providing exceptional service this is where that is captured and honoured.

 

- CyberScout

 

Cyber Broking Innovation of the Year

This award intends to celebrate the role of brokers as the lifeblood of innovation in the London market. Candidates were (re)insurance broking teams and/or their managers. We looked for a broking innovation of the last two years that has broken boundaries in terms of its originality and succeeded in increasing the size and scope of the market by identifying and satisfying emerging customer demand.

 

- Marsh Cyber CAT 3.0

 

Cyber Underwriting Innovation of the Year

This category recognises an underwriting initiative or new product launched in the last two years that has broken boundaries in terms of innovation and increased the size and scope of the market.

 

We looked for initiatives that are efficiently structured, well priced and successfully executed, with the recipient being either the individual(s) or team(s) that designed the product or initiative, or those responsible for backing and spearheading the new venture.

 

- Hiscox Cyber Training Programme

 

Cyber Breach Response Team of the Year

This is a new award for 2019. We want to recognise the best team that assists a company who is facing a cyber breach. This includes anything from PR communication and notification of a cyber breach to analysis, forensics and solutions.

 

- CFC Cyber Response Team

 

Most Skilled Broker of the Year

The Cyber Rankings survey requires underwriters to rate their nominations for best broker on eight measureable attributes: risk knowledge, honesty and integrity, communication, analytical skills, diligence, ownership for when things go wrong, consistency and creativity.

 

This award winner is recognised for their superb combination of these key skills.

 

- Tom Quy, Beach and Associates

 

Most Skilled Underwriter of the Year

Similarly, brokers are asked to rate their nominations for best underwriter on six key skills: knowledge and experience, negotiation skills, fast response, communication, creativity and consistency in the treatment of risks and relationships.

 

The winner has the perfect blend of these key underwriter attributes.

 

- Daniel Johnson, AIG

 

Cyber Brokerage of the Year

Individual scores are aggregated at a company level to provide insights into the firms and teams that are winning today in the London cyber market. Total company scores are then averaged according to how many team members they have - the winner of this award has the highest average score.

 

- Paragon International

 

Cyber Underwriting Firm of the Year

Similarly, who is the top underwriting firm with the highest average score?

 

- Brit Insurance
