CFC Underwriting, the London-based managing general agent that specializes in emerging risks, announced the appointment of Roger Francis as Cyber Claims director. Francis will lead CFC’s cyber claims and incident response organization, as well as oversee CFC’s cyber risk management services.
Francis joins CFC with 15 years’ experience in information security, helping businesses protect their organizational assets from cyber threats, developing global security governance programs, and responding to headline cyber breaches.
Most recently, Francis was head of EMEA Security Advisory at Aon / Stroz Friedberg, where he delivered proactive cyber risk solutions to insureds, and helped clients quantify and manage cyber risk. Prior to Aon, he was the EMEA Strategic & Cyber Insurance lead at Mandiant (FireEye), and director of Professional Services for McAfee (Intel Security).
“When a client purchases a policy from CFC, they’re really buying the claims service behind it,” said Francis. “Nowhere is that more critical than in cyber, where technical expertise and real-world claims handling experience can make the difference between a business suffering a catastrophic loss or getting back online quickly. CFC’s cyber underwriting and claims team is market-leading, and I’m eager to join the group in taking these capabilities to the next level.”
