by Jonathan Daly / January 14, 2019

2019 will be a big year for IntSights, and I’m excited to kick off the new year with an important announcement. IntSights has hired Nick Hayes, formerly Senior Analyst at Forrester Research, as our Vice President of Strategy! Nick will be instrumental in helping IntSights continue building a market-leading digital risk protection platform to help our customers detect and mitigate external cyber threats.

Here’s a bit more about Nick’s experience, what he’ll be responsible for and why he joined IntSights. 

Nick’s Background

Nick Hayes comes to IntSights with a decade of experience advising Fortune 500 and growth companies on cybersecurity strategy and market trends. During his time at Forrester, he pioneered the digital risk protection (DRP) research and authored over 100 reports on a wide gamut of cybersecurity, risk, and threat intelligence topics. Some of his unique areas of expertise include social media weaponization, brand security, and threat detection, prevention, and response.

Key Responsibilities

As VP of Strategy, Nick will be responsible for identifying, prioritizing and supporting strategic growth initiatives across business functions, as well as evangelizing IntSights products and services among customers, prospects and the community at large. He brings an unapparelled ability to educate the market on the need for digital risk protection and will significantly influence and guide IntSights’ product strategy moving forward.

Why Nick Joined IntSights

While we’re thrilled to have Nick join our organization, he’s equally excited as well. He recently wrote an article on LinkedIn explaining his decision to join IntSights and the opportunity ahead for us all.

“I believe that now, there is no challenge bigger and no strategic objective more critical for security teams, than how they address and safeguard their organizations – their assets, people, and IP – on every external channel online.”
