Sharing Expertise Peer to Peer – Meet John Wurzler

At OneBeacon, expertise is the heart and soul of our company, something we try and put to work across all facets of our business. We also believe in continually building our expertise through industry engagement, often by facilitating discussions or seminars to share—and gain—insights.

Meet John Wurzler. John leads our Technology business, a segment he’s been underwriting for 15+ years. That experience means that John’s often called upon to speak at industry events, an opportunity he enjoys. Most recently, John spent a day at PLUS Southwest’s (Professional Liability Underwriters Society) one-day conference titled “Insuring the Information Age.” John was one of several panelists sharing insights on the continually evolving challenges of protecting the tech segment. Think data breaches, network security and cyber liability, to name a few. John’s insights offered potential solutions to help prevent, manage and control such matters.

According to John, it all boils down to people—every problem is still rooted in human behavior. So by educating employees about the limits of technology and why data must be respected, you initiate a risk management strategy. And that’s always music to an underwriter’s ears!
