27 July 2020, London and New York: Panaseer, an enterprise  cybersecurity company, has established a new world-class Advisory Board that includes prominent figures in leadership, sustainability, business and security. 

The Advisory Board will advance Panaseer’s vision of preventing cybersecurity incidents through effective measurement in risk management and help accelerate widespread adoption of Panaseer’s Continuous Controls Monitoring platform, with a focus on large enterprises and highly regulated industries. 

Nik Whitfield, CEO, Panaseer:
Panaseer was the first company to create a Continuous Controls Monitoring platform, which finally solves the cyber metrics and measurement challenges faced by large organisations today. By bringing together this ‘dream team’ of visionaries and experienced leaders we will be able to fully leverage this opportunity as they will be instrumental in enabling us to further enhance our offering and get the word out to the market.”

It thought differently and now is the time for it to capitalise on this foresight. Being a pioneer requires a certain mindset, and I am excited to guide the team on its journey to growth.”
