Per Advisen, “These awards, chosen by popular vote, will go to thought leaders, decision makers, and risk professionals across the cyber insurance world.”

Johnson, Kendall & Johnson (JKJ), a leading brokerage for risk management and insurance solutions, was selected as a finalist in the category of “Cyber Risk Retail Broking Team of the Year”. This award recognizes the efforts of a dedicated, innovative retail broking team that has worked tirelessly in the past year to expand understanding of cyber risk insurance in the wider marketplace.

JKJ is extremely proud of this nomination and encourages the broader business community to cast a vote.


JKJ has established itself as a premier retail brokerage and cyber thought leader. Through their dedication to knowledge and experience in cyber liability, JKJ educates its clients on the latest claim trends, changes in insurance terms, and risk management strategies. JKJ had the foresight that Cyber would become one of the greatest risks facing businesses, naming a former IT consultant as Cyber Practice Leader in 2020 – Alexandra Bretschneider. Alexandra is one-of-less-than-200 individuals worldwide to have obtained the Cyber COPE Insurance Certification (CCIC) designation from Carnegie Mellon – Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy.

JKJ’s Cyber Practice develops content and delivers presentations to leading national healthcare associations, publishes white papers, conducts tabletop exercises, facilitates contract reviews, and develops a service model around education and deployment of cybersecurity best practices.

Their cyber practice is relied upon by other accounting, legal, and cybersecurity firms for their clients in the areas of cyber insurance expertise and coverage reviews.

“Today’s cyber threat landscape has become increasingly sophisticated and dangerous for every sector of business. The need to be proactive, rather than reactive in this space, is a necessity and that’s exactly what a business needs in its broker” said Ernie Koschineg, Esq, Privacy Attorney from Cipriani & Werner (also nominated for Advisen’s Cyber Law Firm of the Year). “JKJ’s cybersecurity team has taken this approach from day one. Not only does JKJ understand the key insurance aspects needed to protect business interests, but they have the knowledge to help their clients understand what a true cybersecurity plan means and why it is important.”

“A cyber risk management program needs to be uniquely customized to the operations, budget, and risk tolerance of the organization” Alexandra Bretschneider, JKJ’s Cyber Practice Leader noted. “Now more than ever, cybersecurity is top of mind for our clients and our practice is dedicated to helping them improve their cybersecurity posture & resilience strategies.”
