New York, NY - QBE North America demonstrates its commitment to specialty lines growth with the elevation of Steven H Anderson to the role of NA Product Executive - Privacy & Network Security for its cyber liability product suite.

Protecting sensitive information is an important issue for every organization.

"Privacy and network security is an area of rapidly morphing emerging risks and exposures, and we are committed to developing innovative, creative and market leading product solutions to address new and emerging cyber liability risks for our producers and our policyholders", said Grange.

"QBE is committed to developing and offering market leading privacy and network security products that help clients solve their issues - either through standalone cyber liability products, cyber coverage within packaged or module products, and cyber endorsements or enhancements to existing products - and this new role demonstrates our commitment", Grange added.

Steven H Anderson is a seasoned business executive with over 20 years experience in the technology and insurance industries. Starting his career working with technology start ups, Steven has spent the past 10 years underwriting professional liability lines at Travelers and RLI and XL. At XL, he was heavily involved in product development and underwriting specifically for cyber liability products.

Steven holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Baylor University. He has also earned his Registered Professional Liability Underwriter (RPLU+) designation, and he is a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA).
