Cado Security, provider of the first and only cloud-native digital forensics platform, announced the appointment of former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to its Board of Advisors. As the 29th prime minister of Australia, Turnbull played an active role in the country’s cybersecurity defence strategy, appointing a minister for cybersecurity to the Australian Cabinet for the first time and launching Australia’s first national cybersecurity and critical infrastructure strategies. Turnbull’s decision to join the Cado Security Board of Advisors complements an investment by Turnbull & Partners in the company’s recent Series A fund raising.
James Campbell, co-founder and CEO of Cado Security and former senior officer with the Australian Signals Directorate, said he was honoured to welcome Turnbull to the company’s Board of Advisors. “Malcolm’s experience building cybersecurity strategies from the ground up will be invaluable as we continue to build Cado Security to help enterprises quickly and easily conduct deep forensic investigations across modern cloud environments,” he said. “Despite the benefits the cloud can offer, there is still a realistic fear that security incidents in modern cloud environments can be a financial, legal and technical minefield enterprises simply can’t keep up with.”
As with many nations, Australia continues to face increasing cybersecurity threats to essential services, businesses and government1. As a member of Cado Security’s Board of Advisors, Turnbull will provide critical advice given his experience and unique perspective on the sophisticated global threats targeting both governments and industry. “I’m excited to join Cado Security during such an exciting chapter in the company’s growth as it establishes itself as the first and only cloud-native digital forensics platform,” Turnbull said. “Today’s cybersecurity landscape is rapidly evolving, as cybercriminals and nation states look for creative ways to threaten businesses and society.
