Aon acquires US cyber security consultantReprints
Aon P.L.C. has acquired U.S.-based cyber security consultant Stroz Friedberg L.L.C., thereby adding incident response and other capabilities to its cybersecurity assessment and risk transfer services portfolio, CIO reports. Stroz is likely best known for helping Sony Pictures Entertainment and Yahoo Inc. mitigate damage from large cyber breaches and the acquisition should enable Aon to move more swiftly after an attack, said John Bruno, Aon's chief information officer. Stroz chief executive Michael Patsalos-Fox will become the CEO of the new group.
