Canopius appoints cyber risk analyst

LONDON – 21st February 2022 – Canopius Group, a leading global specialty (re)insurer, today announces the appointment of Gregory Hinds as Cyber Insight Analyst, effective immediately.

Based in London and reporting to Canopius’ Global Head of Cyber Matt Northedge, Gregory will be responsible for data management/science, providing actionable insights to underwriters and an enhanced view of cyber risk.

He joins Canopius from the National Cyber Security Centre, where he provided guidance to priority sectors and advice related to cyber security, ransomware and supply chain risk. Prior to that, Gregory held a variety of IT and security-related roles in both the commercial and public sectors.

Matt Northedge said: “Investing in a data-led approach to risk analytics is part of Canopius strengthening its position in response to the dynamic, fast-developing cyber threat. We deliberately recruited outside of insurance to obtain different views of risk and Greg’s skills and experience, combining cyber security and data science, will hugely benefit Canopius and our insureds. This, as part of wider investment, demonstrates not only Canopius’ commitment to cyber but also to offering market-leading capabilities in this class.”
