SAN FRANCISCO, CA, June 8, 2023 – To support Resilience’s international growth and recent new solution launch to help clients better manage their cyber risk, the company has promoted CJ Pruzinsky to Global Head of Underwriting & Sales. Previously, he led the underwriting team from the launch of the company’s managing general agency. 

As Global Head of Underwriting and Sales, CJ will spearhead the introduction of the Resilience Solution into the global cyber insurance market. This new role brings together both sides of the security and insurance ecosystem to enable Resilience’s broker partners to offer clients one solution for assessing, measuring, and managing their cyber risk.

Amid a steady onslaught of cybercrime, the new Resilience Solution doubles down on the company’s success in dramatically reducing clients’ ransomware extortions and incident costs. The financially proven AI platform brings customers an ongoing learning capability that creates clarity on risk, from cybersecurity visibility. The platform also powers a responsive insurance policy that delivers improvements in coverage, limits, and retention at mid-term, based on continuous client engagement. Finally, the new Resilience Solution also enables hassle-free renewal that bypasses long-form applications better supporting both our clients and broker partners.

“Since joining Resilience, CJ has been an integral part of our leadership team,” said Vishaal “V8” Hariprasad, CEO and Co-Founder of Resilience. “He’s overseen massive growth in our business and underwriting staff and is now launching the first Cyber Resilience solution into the global insurance market.”

“CJ has navigated a tumultuous insurance market wracked by the ransomware epidemic and enabled Resilience’s clients to come out stronger,” said Mario Vitale, President of Resilience. “Given his long history in the market and deep relationship with our broker partners, CJ will be an excellent leader as we introduce this first-of-its-kind solution.”

Before joining Resilience in 2021, CJ spent more than 15 years underwriting specialty lines, including errors and omissions, media liability, and information security and privacy for middle-market and large clients. He began his career at American International Group (AIG) before joining Beazley in 2014. Over the course of six years at Beazley, CJ earned a reputation as a leader in the cyber insurance community. 

The Resilience Solution is provided through all Resilience broker partners and is available to clients in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. For more information, visit
