The company has appointed an advisory board to boost its tailored service offerings to its critical infrastructure and OT clients.

The advisory board comprises Energy Australia CISO Catherine Buhler, former PepsiCo and Oil Search CIO and senior vice president Jackie Montado, Seqwater cyber security head Patrick Dunstan, and former TasNetworks CISO Steve Mason.

Announcing the new board, Secolve founder and CEO Laith Shahin says each appointee contributes a unique perspective and lived experience in the cyber security and OT space.

"I am delighted to be partnering with a team of specialists so highly esteemed within the cyber and OT security sectors, and who have such extensive hands-on experience in their respective industries," Shahin says.

"The OT security landscape is constantly evolving, and we are proud to have been able to harness the best minds in the business to ensure our clients can stay one step ahead of threat actors and mitigate against adverse outcomes in case of attack."

Shahin says the diversity of the board will also assist clients with regulatory compliance requirements, particularly energy sector clients navigating AESCSF complexities.

"The frequent sophisticated attacks critical infrastructure organisations face has made it increasingly difficult for them to secure their operations," Shahin adds.

"There is never a one size fits all response; it requires a diverse and expert skillset to repel such attacks.

"The depth and combined experience of our advisory board not only positions Secolve as a market leader in the OT security landscape but also our clients.

"They benefit from a broad range of innovative approaches to tackling problems and simplifying processes, ensuring we understand the constantly evolving challenges they face and how to address them."
