Canopius launches cyber threat consultancy

Canopius has launched an in-house cyber threat consultancy. The practice will provide an enhanced level of support for insureds, including expert support and counsel on appropriate enhancements to cyber security defences.

Isabel Finn has joined the company to co-lead the new practice as a Senior cyber threat intelligence analyst. Finn will work with Mathin Ahmadi, head of cyber insights and analytics at Canopius, to launch the carrier’s new service.

Finn joins Canopius from FTI Consulting, where she was a threat intelligence consultant. Prior to this, she was a cyber threat analyst at Darktrace and consultant cyber analyst at government advisory firm Francis Maude Associates.

Mathin Ahmadi said: “The cyber threat is continuously evolving. Cyber criminals are becoming more sophisticated and their modes of attack more diverse. For our clients, understanding and mitigating the threat is as important as ensuring they have the appropriate cover in place if their systems are breached. We are committed to bringing on board the right mix of talent which will allow us to remain at the forefront of cyber threat intelligence and provide a leading service to clients, at every stage of their cyber security journey.”

Isabel Finn added: “My work in cyber security has encompassed proactive and reactive approaches. I have successfully operated in a security operations centre, engaged in threat hunting, conducted compliance and risk assessments and led transformation programs. This range of experience provides me with a broad perspective of the threat landscape. My passion lies in building predictive and quantitative risk models that leverage cyber threat intelligence, macro business factors and technical security controls to assess an organisation’s risk level to cyber security threats. By combining these elements and leaning on my breadth of cyber experience, I hope to deliver actionable insights to the cyber and technology team."

The announcement builds on the launch last month of the firm's Cyber Incident Management team.
