San Francisco, California – Woodruff Sawyer, one of the largest insurance brokerages in the US, today announced Daniel Burke has been named National Cyber Practice Leader, effective immediately. Mr. Burke joined Woodruff Sawyer in 2018, and works closely with clients to assess their cyber exposure, develop risk mitigation solutions, and create custom cyber insurance for their specific needs. Prior to working at Woodruff Sawyer, Burke was the Cyber Product Head at Hiscox USA.
Andy Barrengos, CEO, says, “71% of US companies have reported at least one data breach; the expertise and innovation Dan brings to our clients to address their cyber exposures is critical. In the last year, he has developed the Cyber Services Network—a new model for cyber response and mitigation, created new partnerships with key third parties to serve our clients, and speaks and writes about the latest developments in cyber security and cyber liability.”
Burke adds, “I’ve seen an executive-level commitment to cyber from Woodruff Sawyer that is unparalleled, which has enabled me to innovate and find unique and creative solutions to help clients. The fact is most companies will experience a cyber event at some point. Being ready to respond through risk assessment, mitigation, and cyber insurance will make a huge difference in their ability to recover quickly. Finding new opportunities to innovate here is a valuable way to serve our clients.”
