Tokio Marine Holdings (TMH) has appointed Daljitt Barn to the newly created role of global head of cyber risk.
Based in London, Barn is responsible for the continued development of Tokio Marine Group’s cyber strategy assisting with cyber risk quantification and control, as well as innovation and partnership opportunities.
He joins the company from Munich Re where he most recently served as head of cyber innovation and consulting services and was instrumental in setting up the cyber team within corporate underwriting, creating a Munich Re-wide cyber community and developing the group-wide cyber insurance strategy, according to a company statement.
Before this he was cyber director at PwC where he built and managed the cyber risk team in the insurance and investment management sectors.
Kuni Fujii, TM Group CRO, said: “We are delighted that Daljitt has joined the Tokio Marine Group. Cyber risk presents the insurance industry with both an opportunity and a threat and he will be critical to Tokio Marine as we continue to develop our presence and understanding in this important area.”
Barn added: “This truly is a great opportunity and I can’t wait to get started at Tokio Marine Holdings. The global brand and market reputation are second to none, and I look forward to working closely with the cyber insurance and cyber risk teams to further develop a secure platform for success.”
