Aon acquires cybersecurity firm Cytelligence

Aon announced the acquisition of Cytelligence Inc, a Canadian-based cybersecurity firm that provides incident response advisory, digital forensic expertise, security consulting services and cybersecurity training for employees to help organizations respond to cybersecurity threats and strengthen their security position.

“As the number of network intrusions, data breaches, ransomware attacks, and similar threats continues to increase in both frequency and severity, expertise in cyber incident response becomes critical to organizations and insurance companies. The Cytelligence team are deep experts in cyber incident response, ransomware mitigation, and cyber security training for employees, which will help cement our position in both North America and globally as an industry leader.” – J Hogg, CEO of Aon’s Cyber Solutions.

This acquisition enhances Aon’s 2016 acquisition of Stroz Friedberg and now allows Aon’s Cyber Solutions to offer an even more holistic portfolio of services to clients from proactive security services to incident response, to risk quantification and insurance broking.

Cytelligence has offices in Toronto, Ottawa, New York, San Francisco and Miami. The firm employs professionals in cybersecurity and education, investigations, and forensic analytics. The firm was founded in June 2016.
