At Mercury ® Financial, CIO Arjun Thusu and his nine-member security team have stopped at nothing to ensure that its cybersecurity program is as comprehensive as possible, and that company and customer data receives the highest level of protection.

Arjun and his team, comprised of members such as CISO Anthony Cunha and Head of Cyber Threat Management Alex Arango, have a specific skill set that lends itself to expertly managing vendor relationships and identifying technologies that strengthen and modernize its security posture. One of the ways Arjun and his team did this is by implementing Zero Trust Framework in an impressive nine months, roughly half the time it takes the rest of the industry.

With this granular security boundary in place, Mercury Financial can carefully scrutinize the level of access it gives to anyone not within their company, including vendors, to better protect against ransomware and cyberattacks.
