The financial sector is a target for hackers and cyber thieves, but it’s also among the best prepared.

The sudden shift to remote work necessitated by the pandemic, however, has expanded cyber risk exposures for many companies.

Broker Carlene Kuske has helped clients identify, test and mitigate these exposures. 

“This past year, my company conducted a quantitative limit and coverage analysis for our cyber insurance risk framework,” said Erica Chaikin Filosa, insurance director, treasury, for DTCC – Jersey City.

“Carlene and team gathered information from a series of technical interviews with senior executives across my organization, developed cyber risk event scenarios that reflect our unique exposures, and mapped technology vulnerability across various business processes to identify potential material financial impacts to our organization and our customers.”

Kuske also stands out for the deep expertise she exhibits in each client’s business and the dedication she shows in addressing each one comprehensively. 

Said the senior manager of one asset management firm: “She looks at our entire program holistically to see where we can achieve savings across platforms and across jurisdictions; she doesn’t just stick to her wheelhouse. She is an extension of our team. I’ve never had a question that she couldn’t answer, and no email goes unanswered. She takes professionalism and customer service to an extreme almost.”
