We’re delighted to announce that Richard Horne is joining our advisory board today. Richard brings a wealth of experience in information security and complements our existing line-up of mentors and advisors.
You can read all about it in our press release, but here are a couple of quotes:
Cryptography is an increasingly critical area for security and many organisations are unknowingly exposed by vulnerable implementations of cryptography buried in their applications and infrastructure. Cryptosense has a unique capability to find crypto vulnerabilities and enable organisations to protect themselves against modern threats that increasingly target those vulnerabilities. It’s a pleasure to help the founders shape the product to have maximum impact.

We’re delighted to welcome Richard Horne to our advisory board. He is an authority on current information security issues, and his deep experience will help us make sure our crypto vulnerability discovery products meet and exceed their users expectations.
– Cryptosense co-founder and CEO Graham Steel
