November 10, 2016 - New York, NY - Joseph Steinberg, Chief Executive Officer of SecureMySocial and respected cybersecurity thought leader, has been named to the Board of Advisors of Cybersecurity Ventures, a leading research firm in the cybersecurity industry.
Steinberg, who has worked in the information security field for nearly two decades, has also served as CEO of Green Armor Solutions, and as a Director at Whale Communications (acquired by Microsoft). He has invented various information security technologies in use today, written hundreds of articles on cybersecurity-related topics as a regular columnist at Forbes and Inc. magazines, and has been calculated to be among the top three online influencers worldwide in the information-security industry.
Steinberg joins a board of peers with extensive and varied cybersecurity industry experience, including John McAfee, Founder of McAfee Associates, Robert Herjavec, Founder & CEO of Herjavec Group, and Michelle Finneran Dennedy, Chief Privacy Officer and Vice President at Cisco. The board provides advice and feedback to Cybersecurity Ventures and its Founder and CEO, Steve Morgan.
"We are delighted to have Joseph Steinberg join our Board of Advisors" said Morgan. "Joseph is one of the most talented cybersecurity practitioners and writers in our field, and he brings intimate hands-on experience in multiple areas of information security including securing social media for businesses and consumers -- an under-served, under-protected, and huge growth sector that has been overlooked for far too long. CISOs and IT security professionals are just waking up to the potential reputational harm, data leaks, and other risks their employers face as a result of social media misuse, exploits, and hacks. Joseph will be a great resource to Cybersecurity Ventures, especially as we begin examining and reporting on social media security."
“As technology has become the great enabler of advancement for businesses, governments, and societies, cybersecurity has become a fundamental ingredient for success, and at times, even for survival. As new risks evolve with the advent of new technologies, access to up-to-date information on related developments and trends – as is provided by Cybersecurity Ventures – is critically important,” said Steinberg. "I am honored and excited to join the team of expert advisors at Cybersecurity Ventures, and look forward to sharing my experience and perspectives to help make the world a more cyber-secure environment."
