I’m glad to play a part in supporting Kovrr’s continuous growth in the cyber insurance market.”
Helen has worked within the insurance industry for over 12 years, with experience in statistical modelling and underwriting. Helen has recently joined Ki as a Portfolio Underwriter, leading the underwriting of the Casualty portfolio.

We know her experience will be a perfect fit in guiding our innovation efforts around Kovrr’s cyber risk quantification platform used by risk professionals for underwriting, managing cyber risk accumulation and financially quantifying their cyber risk.”
