Eye Security takes first steps towards European expansion with the appointment of Anne Masson
Eye Security has grown explosively in the Netherlands since its inception two years ago. In order to respond to the market's need for a suitable solution in the field of cyber security, Anne Masson has taken up the position of CEO Belgium. In this way, Eye Security can also protect small and medium-sized businesses across borders. This is an important next step in realizing the dream of becoming a European player and making a difference in the fight against cybercrime.
Job Kuijpers, CEO of Eye Security: “Anne brings valuable knowledge and expertise from the insurance industry. We believe that you can only remove cyber risk from the balance sheet if you combine security measures with insurance. The arrival of Anne offers us commercial clout and an opening in the Belgian market to unburden small and -sized enterprises in the field of cyber security.”
Anne is no stranger to the world of InsurTech. She started her career with Marsh, one of the world's leading insurance brokers. After holding various positions, she made it to SVP Practice leader Risk Management for the Benelux. After 22 years, she changed her career by joining Vialegis – part of House of HR – as International Operations Officer. For the past three years she has been involved with Shift Technology as Sales Director Benelux and DACH. This InsurTech company specializes in AI-powered and innovative SAAS solutions for the insurance market.
Anne: “Eye Security's mission to relieve entrepreneurs of 'cybersecurity stress' fascinates me enormously. It is precisely in the Belgian market that there is a need for a party that makes cybersecurity accessible and affordable. I am very happy to support this ambitious growth story and I see it as my mission to realize the internationalization of Eye Security with the team in order to put us on the Belgian map.”
Eye Security protects small and medium-sized European companies against cyber threats and the high costs that follow a cyber attack. Eye Security consists of a specialized team of people with a background from both intelligence services and commercial organizations. We understand the threat landscape and the challenges entrepreneurs face in fighting cybercrime. Our goal is to unburden SMEs with an affordable all-in-one package combined with cyber insurance.
