Leading international insurance broker, Howden Broking Group (‘Howden’), has been named Risk Retail Broking Team of the Year at Advisen’s seventh annual Cyber Risk Awards.

The Awards recognise prominent professionals and organisations across the global cyber risk landscape, and are voted on by people’s choice. This year’s Quarantine Edition was broadcast virtually from New York.

Cyber is considered the fastest-growing product in the insurance industry, and Howden, as a leading international broker with an absolute dedication to specialism, has combined its in-depth local knowledge and global platform, to position itself as the broker of choice for clients navigating the cyber market.

Shay Simkin, Head of Howden’s Global Cyber Practice, picked up the award remotely, saying: “Howden has long put Cyber at the top of the agenda, having anticipated that this risk would be fundamental to clients.  The award is a fantastic endorsement of Howden’s leading expertise worldwide in the field of cyber, particularly as it is clients and industry peers that voted for us. Our global team of cyber specialists remains focused on providing innovative solutions for our clients in the anticipation of the next cyber event, which is always just a matter of time. At Howden, we have the freedom and flexibility to deliver what is best for clients, and to seize the opportunity posed by wider digital trends in today’s fast-moving world.

The award-winning Howden Cyber Academy was relaunched earlier this year for the benefit of Howden employees, so they can learn from the Group’s experience and expertise, enabling them to better service and advise their clients.
