TrustMAPP announced today that Allan Alford will be joining the company as its CTO and CISO. Alford comes to TrustMAPP with more than 20 years of experience in cybersecurity, having led security teams at NTT Data, Mitel, and Polycom.
Alford’s relationship with TrustMAPP began in 2018 when he became a TrustMAPP customer. That evolved into Alford joining TrustMAPP’s CISO Advisory Board in 2019.
“With the rapid growth we experienced in 2020 and our planned trajectory in 2021, we knew we needed to add an experienced and thoughtful technology leader, as well as a CISO of our own,” said Chad Boeckmann, founder and CEO of TrustMAPP. “It was just so obvious that Allan could fill both of those roles for us.”
“I have successfully used TrustMAPP to manage security performance as a practicing CISO,” said Alford. “Now, as CTO, I get to bring all my CISO experiences to bear and help make a fantastic product even better.”
Given Alford’s high profile in the global CISO community, TrustMAPP expects that he will become another “voice of the customer” at TrustMAPP and help guide the company’s roadmap. In addition, TrustMAPP expects Alford to become a key evangelist of the company’s approach to Security Performance Management.
