- “Our whole focus is to provide our clients with a very comprehensive cyber insurance program that is going to actually protect them.” – Beau Bechelli
- “Cyber is definitely a very interesting space because we’re seeing these attacks change every six to twelve months, where hackers are finding new ways to either steal funds, illegally acquire funds, or steal data from companies.” – Beau Bechelli
- “Technology is never going to be 100% effective. And so, that’s where having a cyber policy will really be that last line of defense and will help protect the business if they still get hit, even though they invest in state of the art security.” – Beau Bechelli
