Barbican has appointed Lauren Webb as a class underwriter for cyber within its Lloyd’s Syndicate 1955.

Webb was most recently cyber underwriting manager in London for Chubb.

She has been with Chubb since 2011. That followed another seven year stint at RSA where she was a senior professional indemnity underwriter before taking on responsibility for cyber.

“The cyber insurance market is still evolving at a phenomenal pace,” Graeme King, business group leader for cyber at Barbican said.

“Such speed of evolution demands the guidance of experienced underwriters, which is why we are delighted that Lauren is joining us,” King added.

“I am excited to have joined the cyber team at Barbican,” Webb said.

“This is a highly motivating and dynamic environment and the team have been at the forefront of developments in the cyber sphere for many years,” she went on.

“I am looking forward to playing my part in their continuing success.”
