Mosaic continues to build up its cyber underwriting capabilities

Daisy Lopez, Mosaic

Mosaic has hired Daisy Lopez as vice president and production specialist for cyber as it expands its US team of underwriters to meet growing demand for cover. 

Lopez has 13 years of experience and has worked with clients in the US Midwest, West Coast, and East Coast commercial insurance markets. She joins from Crum & Forster where she was a product manager for large lawyers and accountants' professional liability portfolios. She had experience underwriting miscellaneous errors and omissions (E&O), cyber liability, and technology E&O, and managed a team of underwriters in Chicago and the New York metropolitan area. 

She also worked for Lockton, assisting professional services firms with the placement of property and casualty, professional and management liability coverage needs.

At Mosaic Lopez specialises in assessing and underwriting complex cyber risks across North American markets. She is based in New York and reports to Mosaic’s head of Americas cyber, Brian Dusek. 

Yosha DeLong, global head of cyber for Mosaic, emphasised the need to clearly define the scope of cyber coverage as it is eliminated from other lines of business. Lopez’s “experience across professional lines and her background as both a broker and underwriter give her a unique advantage to be able to look at cyber solutions needed in today’s environment,” DeLong added. 

Mosaic launched in February 2021 and began underwriting cyber insurance globally on April 1 through teams based in Chicago and London. It is one of six lines offered by the specialty insurer, with underwriting already underway in political violence and political risk lines.
