Co-CEO of its CMD Solutions brand, Adam Durbin, will transition to CEO of newly launched offering, Cyber@Mantel, effective immediately.

Cyber@Mantel will pull together Mantel Group's existing experience and expertise into an offering that can service existing and new clients across its nine brands, or directly, to enable customers to accelerate large-scale cyber security initiatives and improve the protection of their IT environments.

"As part of the broader Mantel Group, Cyber@Mantel is in a unique position to offer an end-to-end solution for organisations of all sizes," Durbin says.

"At a time when businesses across the country are clearly struggling to keep their security posture in line with the pace of change, the launch of Cyber@Mantel will allow us to focus and specialise in supporting organisations to improve their cyber security and risk posture by leveraging real-time visibility and response, automation, best in breed tooling and a risk-driven prioritisation framework.

"We will be able to enhance our strategic partnerships with major cloud providers and innovative vendors to extend our offerings around core security domains, including cloud, data, digital and governance, and risk and compliance.

"Security expertise is in short supply, and many organisations don't have the capabilities in-house to tackle their security challenges.

"Cyber@Mantel will assist our clients' cyber security teams to keep up with the pace of innovation and the evolving threat landscape by implementing real-time security assurance, driven by automated collection of key metrics and KPIs."

Durbin is already looking to grow the current Cyber@Mantel team and is currently hiring leading security experts.
