Prove Identity has appointed Amanda Fennell to the role of Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and Chief Information Officer (CIO).
Fennell, who most recently served in similar roles at Relativity, brings over twenty years of security industry experience including several years spent in digital forensics and cybersecurity at companies such as Symantec, Dell SecureWorks, Zurich Insurance Group, Booz Allen Hamilton, and Guidance Software.
At Relativity, Fennell was responsible for overseeing security strategy for key business functions and also hosted their Security Sandbox podcast which aimed to explore the association of non-security items and the security realm.
“Amanda’s experience and leadership will be an asset to our company as we continue to grow our global operations. Amanda will help lead Prove as well as educate the broader security market about next-generation digital identity authentication technologies,” said Rodger Desai, Chief Executive Officer of Prove on the announcement.
Through the role, Fennell will be tasked with further driving Prove’s key mission of delivering digital trust so business can do more. As part of this, the company leverages Phone Centric Identity to secure risky aspects of digital transactions in banking, commerce and payments among others.
“I’m thrilled to bring my passion for security to Prove and help guide the next phase of growth for the company,” said Fennell, adding that the need to prevent fraud had become even more critical across industries.
