SpyCloud Announces Damon Fleury as Chief Product Officer

Veteran security leader joins to guide the product strategy of the leader in Cybercrime Analytics™

Austin, TX – November 30, 2022 /Business Wire/ – SpyCloud, the leader in operationalizing Cybercrime Analytics™, today announced Damon Fleury as its new Chief Product Officer. Fleury will be responsible for the strategy and development of SpyCloud’s diverse portfolio of fraud and cyberthreat prevention products.

Throughout his nearly 30 year career in the security industry, Damon has served in a range of leadership positions in engineering, product management, market strategy, security services, and incident response, working to develop innovative and disruptive products and services. Prior to joining SpyCloud, Damon served as the CTO and VP of Cybersecurity Services at CyberDefenses Inc., a Texas-based MSSP where he built cybersecurity services, for commercial and SLED clients, from the ground-up.

“Damon has served as an important partner and advisor to SpyCloud since its founding in 2016 and has been invaluable in pushing the company to where it is today – especially in these last several months as our Vice President of Strategy,” said Ted Ross, CEO and Co-Founder of SpyCloud. “We’ve seen extensive growth in recent years, and as we continue to innovate, having Damon’s experience and ingenuity on the senior leadership team will enable us to move into new markets and ensure we‘re delivering industry-leading solutions for our customers.”

This new appointment will further drive the success of SpyCloud’s shift to a Cybercrime Analytics company, an automated prevention approach enabled by the company’s first-of-its-kind Cyber Analytics Engine and powered by over 300+ billion recaptured assets from the criminal underground.

“I’m thrilled to lead the team building innovative products and solutions to protect customers from the most prevalent cyberthreats. We have seen a sharp increase in criminal online activity over the last 24 months, but existing tools fall short when it comes to actionable darknet insights,” said Damon Fleury, Chief Product Officer of SpyCloud.

“We created the Cybercrime Analytics category to fill this gap – to unify our solutions and showcase how our products allow organizations to take action to protect themselves from online fraud and critical cyberthreats that stem from stolen data, such as account takeover, and ransomware.

Building upon a period of sustained growth at the company over the last few years, including the launch of innovative products including Session Identity Protection to negate the threat of session hijacking and SpyCloud Identity Risk Engine to provide businesses with deeper insights on their consumers’ risk of synthetic identity and fraud – the appointment of Damon to SpyCloud’s most senior product leader and strategist will continue this momentum into 2023 and beyond.

Living Security Partners with SpyCloud to More Effectively Identify Enterprise Human Risk

Two Austin-based cyber companies partner to mitigate the effects of security hygiene on enterprise risk

Austin, TX – November 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Living Security, the leader in Human Risk Management, today announced a partnership with SpyCloud, the leader in Cybercrime Analytics, to better identify segments of human risk inside organizations and help security leaders create a proactive plan to mitigate attacks.

Living Security’s Unify Human Risk Management Platform now includes SpyCloud’s Identity Risk Engine, which delivers risk assessments and key risk indicators (KRIs) based on analysis of 300+ billion assets recaptured from data breaches and malware victim logs being traded in the criminal underground. The KRIs link email addresses, usernames, passwords, and PII across employees’ exposed online personas, giving security teams a fuller picture of individuals’ security hygiene, as well as details on the scope, recency, and severity of their darknet exposures. Through this partnership, organizations will be able to better identify the most vulnerable segments within their workforce, including employees with compromised accounts and credentials, so they can best mitigate the human risk exposure and measure their behavior over time.

Eighty-two percent of breaches currently involve the human element. “What is killing organizations is the daily human failures, not the big, notable incidents. These smaller missteps are happening millions of times a day and if you want to lower the onerous demand on your security team, you need to focus on human risk management,” said Dan Walsh, CISO of VillageMD and a member of Living Security’s CISO Advisory Board.

To date, clients using Living Security’s Unify Human Risk Management platform have been able to see their riskiest segments from an “inside-out” view using the internal data from their technology stack, and now they are also able to get the “outside-in” perspective leveraging SpyCloud to decrease risk for their organizations.

“Our focus at Living Security has always been on the human factor. We are disrupting the industry and driving a paradigm shift that enables organizations to leverage behavioral data to effectively manage and mitigate human cybersecurity risk,” said Ashley Rose, CEO and co-founder of Living Security.

“This partnership with SpyCloud is an incredible step in this mission, allowing us to access real-time darknet exposure insights that matter to our clients – identifying employees with riskier behaviors and alerting us to those whose credentials and personal data are compromised. This gives our clients the information they need to prioritize the riskiest segments using a data-led approach to keeping their organizations safe.

– Ashley Rose, CEO and co-founder of Living Security.

“At SpyCloud, we’re continuously working to help businesses stay a step ahead of cybercriminals. Embedding proactive insights in Living Security’s platform helps security leaders understand, at-a-glance, the risk employees pose to the organization,” said Cassio Mello, Senior Vice President of Business Development at SpyCloud. “We share a joint belief with Living Security that staying secure from ransomware, breaches, and account takeover requires taking action on the exposure of individuals in your workforce.”

The partnership comes on the heels of the release of a new Human Risk Management Maturity Model that Living Security is pioneering with other industry leaders to set a new standard of measuring the human risk exposure for organizations. To learn more, visit https://ls.livingsecurity.com.

“With the increasing frequency, sophistication, and persistence of targeted attacks our data and privacy are more vulnerable than ever.

SpyCloud CEO Ted Ross explained, “Together with partners, we can fill in the gaps in enterprise security frameworks. We can show the business what criminals know about it that could be used to walk right in and deploy a successful attack. But we also automatically remediate those exposures, negate the criminals’ ability to profit from what they’ve stolen, and minimize the risk of attacks on the organization, their employees, customers, and bottom line.”

SpyCloud’s North America Partner Program consists of four tiers: Platinum, Gold, Silver & Bronze. Tiering is commensurate with revenue goals and tied to specific registered deal discounts, marketing development funds (MDF), and product certifications.
