Willis Towers Watson links up with IBM


Global advisory, broking and solutions company Willis Towers Watson has announced a new collaboration with IBM Security. As part of an expansion of Willis’ cybersecurity advisory services, it will be integrating IBM Security’s suite of services, including security testing, incident response assessment and cyber resiliency analysis, in order to help its clients more effectively protect themselves against the ever-growing threat of cyber risk. The collaboration, according to Willis, will provide its clients with ‘a more integrated and holistic view of their cyber risk, enabling an effective risk transfer and overall capital allocation strategy’.

“We believe that a successful cyber resiliency strategy must have a comprehensive approach that addresses people, capital and technology in equal measure,” said Anthony Dagostino, Global Head of Cyber Risk at Willis Towers Watson. “Recent cyberattacks are a constant reminder of why companies need a proactive strategy. We are excited to partner with IBM to better address the technological risks our clients face across the globe.”
