Commenting on the appointment, Stuart Quinlan, head of specialty, said: “Cyber risk is a constantly expanding area for clients and the insurance market as a whole. The eRisks unit within Barbican’s specialty division is set up specifically to deal with this threat. Jayne’s appointment as cyber underwriter, working closely with Geoff White, is an excellent addition to our team and clearly demonstrates our commitment to continually strengthening our cyber capabilities to meet this growing challenge.”
