Translating global ransomware attacks and technology vendor disputes into understandable losses is rewarding for Ryan Griffin.

Risk solutions devised for clients last year included a cyber risk financial stress test for Las Vegas Sands Corporation, which incorporated scenario development and quantification.

“As a highly regulated business that derives most of its revenues from international operations, it is critical we have a clear understanding of all threat vectors produced by cyber exposure,” said W. David Little, SVP global risk management.

“Ryan has been instrumental in developing and using the knowledge gained from our stress test to produce risk management solutions that address our cyber exposures.”

Complex claim navigation was undertaken for Sabre Corporation and another client, a producer of slot machines and provider of financial equipment and services to casinos.

“Ryan was instrumental in helping us think through the complexities of our cyber claim and then partnered with us to discuss and justify appropriate coverage,” said Brian Evans, VP, treasury and assistant treasurer, Sabre.

“With his understanding of our underlying business, and expertise in the cyber and E&O market, we were able to drive and deliver a positive outcome for the company.”

A single meeting convinced another client to transition their E&O program from a 10-year incumbent to Griffin and JLT. “Under Ryan’s leadership, the subsequent onboarding process was seamless and thorough,” they said.
