Picnic is the first platform I’ve seen that can map threat intelligence to an organization’s employee
population and proactively mitigate the risk of humancentric attacks.” — Chris Key, former Chief Product Officer of Mandiant and founder of Verodin
WASHINGTON, D.C., U.S., May 15, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Picnic Corporation, the creators of the industry’s first automated enterprise-wide human attack surface management platform, announced today that veteran cybersecurity expert and engineer Christopher Key has been appointed to its Board of Directors.
Chris is an accomplished entrepreneur, technology executive, and startup investor, with over 25 years of experience focused on cybersecurity, software development, and emerging technologies. Most recently, Chris served as the Chief Product Officer at Mandiant, which was acquired by Google, where he was responsible for the strategic development and execution of the Mandiant Advantage SaaS platform. Prior to that, Chris co-founded Verodin, a cybersecurity startup that was acquired by Mandiant, and served as its CEO. Under Chris’ leadership, Verodin introduced a new era of effectiveness, validation, and transparency to the cybersecurity industry by enabling organizations to proactively understand their security posture and identify gaps in their defenses.
Before Verodin, Chris was the Chief Architect of Network Products at ArcSight (acquired by HP), a global leader in cybersecurity software solutions, where he continued to develop the incident response and SOAR platform that ArcSight obtained from its acquisition of ENIRA Technologies, a company he co-founded. Throughout his career, Chris has built and led successful teams in fast-paced, high-growth environments. He is recognized as a thought leader in the cybersecurity industry and is an active member of the community. Chris currently serves on the board of directors for several technology companies and invests in and advises multiple startups in the cybersecurity space.
“Chris is a respected innovator in cybersecurity,” said Picnic CEO Matt Polak. “He deeply understands the problem that Picnic is solving and I am honored to have Chris join our Board.”
“Everyone knows the human element is the single largest source of breaches,” said Chris Key. “A huge hurdle in addressing this challenge is how difficult it is for organizations to get a handle on the data that makes up their human attack surface. Picnic is the first platform I’ve seen that can map threat intelligence to an organization’s employee population and prioritize who will be targeted and how, enabling the organization to proactively mitigate the risk of human-centric attacks. I believe their technology can change the game for security teams and I am happy to be a part of what they are doing.”
