As Vice President of Cybersecurity Services, Paul brings our customers the expertise, experience and proven tools the new information security environment demands. We are also happy to welcome a number of new SageNet clients for whom the team’s cybersecurity solutions are already at work, helping to predict, prevent, detect and respond to cyber threats.
