Huntsman Security announced today that Nick Humphrey has been appointed as global Chief Technology Officer responsible for developing and delivering the strategic technology plan, and guiding R&D into security intelligence capabilities to align with new requirements emerging from customers and industries the company serves.
Nick has over 15 years’ experience in cybersecurity, most of those with UK national security and law enforcement agencies. Nick comments “I am delighted to take up this new challenge. Huntsman Security already has a number of my previous government employers as existing customers, so there is a degree of consistency in terms of the understanding of the problems being faced and the thinking in how to respond. In addition, commercial organisations are increasingly facing data volumes which were traditionally associated only with global technology companies and national governments, and so we have just started an exciting new development initiative which will scale Huntsman’s analytical capability to petabytes and beyond. Our ability to empower decision-making and automate security response at this level is going to change the way that Security Operations Centres operate.”
Peter Woollacott, CEO said “Nick’s wealth of experience and knowledge of industries where cyber security is critical make him a key addition to the growing team at Huntsman Security. We regard his appointment as a sign of our commitment to being a leader in our industry. Driving innovations to address the pressing need to reduce organisations business risk led us to appoint someone of Nick’s calibre to fulfil this role. I’m absolutely confident that Nick will play a critical role in providing and developing high quality solutions for our customers.”
