Specialist insurer Beazley has appointed Christian Taube as its new Head of Cyber Services – International, continuing the rapid expansion of its cyber team this year.
Before joining Beazley, Christian was Chief Information Security Officer at Contentserv and, prior to that, he built the information security practice at DataGuard. Based out of Beazley’s Munich office, he will be responsible for further developing and enhancing Beazley’s cyber risk management and incident response functions.
Commenting on his appointment, Raf Sanchez, Global Head of Cyber Services, said: “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. 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.”
Christian began his role on March 7th 2022, joining the Beazley team in Germany. His recruitment follows the recent appointments of Russ Cohen as Head of US Cyber Services and Bala Larson as Head of Client Experience in February.
