Cyberwrite lands Experian vet as CRO

Cyberwrite, a company that provides cyber risk quantification for cyber insurance and risk management, has announced the appointment of Tim Olson as chief revenue officer.

“We are excited to have Tim join us and have his decades of sales and leadership on our side,” said Nir Perry, CEO of Cyberwrite. “At Cyberwrite, we help companies to quantify, mitigate and insure cyber risk. Our technology provides meaningful insights into how attackers see your company online, and predict the probability and economic impact of cyber breaches for any business. The technology also provides actionable recommendations for the prevention of cyber incidents and the relevant insurance.”

“Cyber risk is hard to quantify, and cyber insurance has become harder to obtain,” Olson said. “Prices are going up and capacity is scarce compared to the demand. Businesses of all sizes, across industries, can benefit from the Cyberwrite solution, and I am delighted to join Cyberwrite as CRO.”
