Congratulations to Agenci and their partners Lorega, who picked up the award for their ‘Cyber Recovery’ product at The Cyber Security Awards 2016.
The Cyber Recovery product, which is an insurance product aimed at the SME market, was commended for “bringing simplicity to a complex market”.
Neill Johnstone, MD of Lorega and Gary Hibberd MD of Agenci, collected the accolade. Hibberd commented: “I’m very proud to say that Agenci, along with our partners Lorega, picked up the award within the insurer category, for our ‘Cyber Recovery’ product. Neill and I accepted the award on behalf of our respective teams, recognising that bringing an Insurance product to market is very much a team effort.
“The Cyber Insurance market is volatile at the moment, as insurers struggle with understanding the cyber risk and the Security industry struggles to educate everyone else on what the risks are and how they need to take action. The Cyber Recovery product that we have developed isn’t your traditional ‘cyber liability insurance’, it’s intended to give SME’s access not only to technical assistance when ‘bad things happen’. It’s a powerful product due to its simplicity.”
“We had a great evening, attendees were thought leaders and those who are pushing the boundaries in technology and innovation. The one thing that binds us is that we are all trying to achieve the same thing – a stronger and more secure society through the better protection of our information in ‘cyber space’.”
More than 200 guests, from CISO’s to Pen testers, attended The Cyber Security Awards 2016, which were held in London at the Chelsea Harbour Hotel. It was hosted by comedian Bennett Arron, who has real world experience in Cyber, having had his own identity stolen from him.
