Chubb creates regional cyber risk manager role for Europe
Major insurer Chubb announced on Tuesday it has appointed Kyle Bryant to the newly-created role of regional cyber risk manager, Europe.

The firm said Bryant will bring together its local cyber risk expertise across its European region into a single practice. Chubb aims to ensure a consistent proposition for its local broker partners and clients while delivering enhanced insight and support to them from across the wider region.

“Cyber risk is rising high on many board agendas. This month’s WannaCry attack has acted as a further wake-up call while implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation across Europe will further raise the stakes for companies and their management teams,” said Andrew Kendrick, regional president, Europe at Chubb.

Bryant’s new role is an expansion of his previous position as cyber risk manager for continental Europe. It will additionally include management responsibility for the company’s cyber risk proposition in the UK and Ireland as well as its London-based wholesale division, Chubb Global Markets.

He has 11 years of industry experience, having held various posts within the field of technology and professional liability insurance. Bryant joined Chubb eight years ago in New York. Prior to moving to Europe, he held the position of regional manager for technology and professional liability for the US Mid-Atlantic region at ACE, which acquired Chubb in January 2016. Since 2015, Bryant has been responsible for the strategy, development and performance of Chubb’s growing cyber risk portfolio in continental Europe.
