London, United Kingdom, 21 June 2023 – Panaseer, a leader in cybersecurity continuous controls monitoring, was selected among hundreds of candidates as one of the World Economic Forum’s “Technology Pioneers”. The enterprise cybersecurity company helps organizations improve their security posture and understand their exposure to threats by using Continuous Controls Monitoring (CCM).

The World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers are early-stage companies that are at the forefront of new technologies and innovation and are poised to have a significant impact on business and society.

“We are excited to welcome Panaseer to our 2023 cohort of Technology Pioneers,” said Verena Kuhn, Head of Innovator Communities at the World Economic Forum. “Panaseer and its fellow pioneers are at the forefront of innovation and disruption needed to help us solve the world’s most pressing issues. We look forward to their contribution to the Forum’s content work that brings together public and private sector to tackle these global issues.”

As a Technology Pioneer, Panaseer CEO Jonathan Gill will be invited to engage with the World Economic Forum, working with global leaders to help address key industry and societal issues. Technology Pioneers will also be invited to join Forum events and discussions throughout the year, bringing together leading stakeholders from the public and private sector.

“It’s an honour to be acknowledged as a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum,” said Gill. “We found that 9 in 10 security leaders are seeing the failure of security controls thought to be in place as the primary cause of data breaches. In this environment, we are using our innovative, data science approach to help solve the biggest issue in cybersecurity: control failures. As we continue to support our customers’ security posture management, we are looking forward to engaging in the Forum’s Centre for Cybersecurity, sharing our thoughts and insights with other global leaders in the field.”

This year’s Technology Pioneer cohort includes startups from 31 economies, with a third led by a woman chief executive. China has the second highest representation with 12 Technology Pioneers, behind the US with 29 companies.
