Making the decision to join Digital Shadows was actually a relatively straight forward decision for me, as it was impossible to turn down this unique opportunity.  My decision came down to 3 main factors – product, culture, and the opportunity ahead.

Product and Timing:

The space we operate in is growing, and maturing, rapidly. While others are concentrating their efforts solely on social media or dark web threats, Digital Shadows SearchLight™ offers unique insight into the risks facing an organization across the broadest range of areas in our industry. This extensive coverage, coupled with our intelligence analyst expertise, allows our clients to gain a full picture of their external digital risk, without false positives, and with mitigation options. This empowers practitioners in a way that was not possible before.

Culture and People:

Our Co-Founders, Alastair Paterson and James Chappell, have built a truly exceptional and unique team and culture at Digital Shadows.  The passion and enthusiasm that the whole company has for our SearchLight product and our clients is truly infectious.  Throughout the interview process I was pleasantly surprised at how consistently the vision of Digital Shadows was echoed by those I met.  The passion that the team has to ensure our clients are successful is key to our own success.  That passion, through our analysts that overlay our technology, make us truly unique in the market place.

The Opportunity Ahead:

The cyber security and digital risk industry is maturing quickly and we have a great opportunity through the Client Success team to differentiate ourselves from our competitors.  Through our SearchLight product and ability to build lasting trusted advisor relationships with our clients, we can ensure that their digital risks are clearly understood.

 

I’m very excited about my next adventure, and look forward to creating a delighted client experience for everyone that chooses to work with us at Digital Shadows.
