SAN MATEO, Calif., Aug. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Exabeam, the leader in Security Intelligence Solutions, today announced that Steve Moore, formerly of Anthem, Inc., has joined the company as Vice President and Chief Security Strategist. In this role, he will help drive solutions for threat detection and response, as well as advise customers in breach management and program development.
Prior to joining Exabeam, Moore spent more than seven years at Anthem, in a variety of cyber security practitioner and leadership roles. Most recently, he served as Staff Vice President of Cyber Security Analytics, and played a leading role in the response and remediation of the data breach announced in 2015. He also brings deep experience working with legal, privacy and audit staff to improve cybersecurity and demonstrate greater organizational relevance.
Cyber threats continue to rise in impact and frequency. As recently reported in Verizon’s 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report, 75% of data breaches in 2016 were perpetrated by external actors and 51% involved organized criminal groups. Healthcare payers and providers are among the most-attacked market segments. These attacks include data breaches from hackers and ransomware infections. Customers require both effective technology solutions, as well as real-world advice and expertise regarding their use.
“Having seen firsthand the impact that a data breach can have on an organization, as well as the steps required to remediate such a breach, I understand the challenges faced by security professionals and executive leadership alike,” said Steve Moore, Chief Security Strategist, Exabeam. “In my new role, I look forward to sharing these lessons while working with customers across multiple industries. I was an Exabeam customer, and am excited to join the company.”
“Customers often struggle to relate their security activity and investments to stakeholders outside of IT,” said Nir Polak, Exabeam Co-Founder and CEO. “Steve’s experience will be invaluable as he helps us build new solutions and customer programs for improving security management and reporting.”
