In his new role, Andrew will be responsible for the Sales leadership of Sword’s Cyber Practice including services such as Incident Response, Security Operations Centre, Vulnerability Management Training and Awareness, Virtual CISO, Professional and Managed services. With 25+ years of working within the Scottish IT market he has developed a vast degree of knowledge and experience with complex solution sales across public/private/hybrid cloud and security technologies.
At a high level, cyber resilience is about understanding where risks can come from, how to protect yourself and how to recover. Without cyber-resilient solutions and recovery plans organisations risk facing extended downtime and increasingly high costs. The reality now is, no longer if you will have a security breach, but when.
Sword’s Cyber Security team provide customers across the Energy, Public and Finance sectors with experts who appreciate the importance of understanding the data you hold before assessing security processes and solutions. They help customers across a wide variety of industries to maintain resilient networks and IT infrastructure by continuously monitoring customer’s digital environment using a range of certified solutions. By ensuring customer’s data sits in a reliable and secure environment, Sword implement sustainable security plans to maintain a high level of cyber resilience.
“I have known Sword Ping for many years and have always admired the commitment given to skills, solution development and service excellence, as such I am looking forward to developing existing propositions, partnerships and enhancing our service offering to our current customers, as well as expanding relationships within some new strategic vertical markets,” Andrew shares.
Business Unit Director, Terry Neill added, “Andrew has hit the ground running since joining Sword Ping at the start of the year, I’m delighted he’s now part of the team. He’s well known in the industry with an excellent pedigree and a proven track record. By leveraging strategic insights and innovative approaches he has been the driving force behind several companies' exponential growth and scale-up of their sales functions. I am confident Andrew is going to be a fantastic addition to our team.”
