)-- Independent Security Evaluators (“ISE”) has hired Casey Pittock as the Chief Executive Officer of this Baltimore based information security consulting business. Dr. Avi Rubin, president and founding partner of ISE, stated that the company’s rapid growth led to the need to bring in a CEO. “We have been very fortunate to have experienced significant growth since we started ISE two years ago,” said Dr. Rubin. “Our client base and reputation continue to grow, and in order to continue delivering the highest level of technical consulting expertise, we felt it was time to recruit a business leader to manage operations and provide strategic direction for ISE.”
Dr. Rubin and the partners of ISE, including Adam Stubblefield, Matthew Green, and Stephen Bono believe Mr. Pittock has the right skill set and experience to move ISE forward. “Casey offers the unique blend of entrepreneurial drive and creativity, combined with executive management experience that we are confident will take ISE to the next level,” said Dr. Rubin.
Mr. Pittock has been a successful entrepreneur and has held high level corporate management positions. Most recently, Mr. Pittock was the Vice President and General Manager of the Senior Living business of Philips Lifeline, a part of the Consumer Healthcare Solutions division of Royal Philips Electronics. Prior to this role, Mr. Pittock was the General Manager of the OneSource division of Lifeline Systems, which was acquired by Philips in early 2006. Mr. Pittock became an executive at Lifeline following the sale of TelCare Systems to Lifeline in 1999. TelCare Systems was founded by Mr. Pittock in 1995. He is a graduate of Stanford University.
“I am excited to be working with such a talented group of people in the expanding field of information security,” said Mr. Pittock. “Avi and the partners have created a very solid base from which to grow the business: ISE has an impressive client list, an outstanding team of security analysts, and perhaps most importantly, the unique position of being a truly independent information security consulting business.”
ISE was founded by Dr. Rubin, a full professor and the Technical Director of the Information Security Institute at the Johns Hopkins University. A custom technology consulting group, ISE was established to address the need for increased information security at every level of an organization. ISE leverages academic theory and real world experience to design and build new, innovative solutions and to evaluate existing security infrastructure.
