Specialist insurer Beazley has announced the appointment of Christian Taube (pictured above) as head of cyber services – international, continuing the rapid expansion of the company’s cyber team this year.
In his new role, Taube will be responsible for further developing and enhancing Beazley’s cyber risk management and incident response functions. He will be based in the company’s Munich office.
Prior to joining Beazley, Taube served as chief information security at Contentserv. Before that, he built the information security practice at DataGuard.
“When you consider the ever-changing risk landscape, and specifically the sharp increase of ransomware in recent years, it is fair to say that maintaining good cyber hygiene should be a key priority for all businesses today,” said Raf Sanchez, head of cyber services at Beazley. “Business leaders also need to be confident that their risk management tools are up to the job to further reduce their risk of falling victim to an attack.
“Providing clients around the globe with the tools they need to stay ahead of the curve from a cyber perspective remains a key goal for Beazley. I am delighted to welcome Christian into the fray to further support our rapid international growth in this area.”
