Lockton, the world’s largest independent insurance broker, is pleased to announce that Deborah Hirschorn has joined as Managing Director, U.S. Cyber & Technology Claims Leader. In her new role, she will lead the overall strategic vision for Lockton’s cyber claims practice. Hirschorn is based in New York and will report to Michelle Faylo, Lockton’s U.S. Cyber & Technology Practice Leader.
Hirschorn joins Lockton from Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance (BHSI). She has extensive experience in cyber, technology errors and omissions and miscellaneous professional liability claims. Hirschorn has handled numerous complex claims, including ransomware incidents, third-party privacy class actions and business interruption matters. She has frequently spoken on panels addressing cyber exposures and risk management, including ransomware and incident response issues. Prior to BHSI, Hirschorn was at AIG and before that she practiced insurance coverage law.
“When looking for the right person to fill this role, Deb immediately came to mind,” said Faylo. “She is not only a talented cyber insurance professional, but her history of building strong relationships with subject matter experts, clients, and colleagues makes her a perfect fit for Lockton and what we are building.”
