"As data breach numbers continue to mount, their growth is matched by the complexity of the regulatory environment that covers them. For any business, it's a chaotic and costly picture that shows no signs of abating. Throughout my career, I've had great opportunities to work closely with both customers and development teams to clearly understand business pains and develop innovative software solutions that address them. Co3 has found another significant business problem that is growing fast and has been overlooked for too long. I'm really excited to be a part of this team."
