Beazley, a pioneer in cyber and data breach response insurance, has appointed Michael Tewfik as a technology, media and business services underwriter focused on addressing the data breach and cyber security risks of organisations in the United Kingdom. He will work out of the company’s London office.
Mr Tewfik joins Beazley from Markel, where he was a senior development underwriter serving the United Kingdom regions. Prior to that, he held underwriting positions with Bluefin Group and Norwich Union.

Since the launch of Beazley Breach Response, a comprehensive services-based solution to data breaches, in 2009, Beazley has helped clients handle more than 5,000 data breaches.
Paul Bantick, Beazley’s UK focus group leader for technology, media and business services, said: “We’re excited to add Michael to the team and expand the reach of our cyber and data breach coverage throughout the United Kingdom. Beazley’s cyber, technology e&o and data breach response insurance policies give businesses in the United Kingdom access to broad cover and dedicated and experienced breach response and claims managers to address the full scope of their technology, cyber and data breach exposures.”
