MinerEye adds cybersecurity leader Harkins to its advisory board

MinerEye, a provider of AI-powered data governance solutions to track data, has appointed cybersecurity industry leader Malcolm Harkins. 

Harkins, the chief security and trust officer (CSTO) at Cylance, has joined MinerEye’s advisory board. Cylance is the first company to apply artificial intelligence, algorithmic science, and machine learning to cybersecurity to prevent advanced security threats.

Prior to that, Harkins was vice president and chief security and privacy officer (CSPO) at Intel Corporation, where he was responsible for managing the risk, controls, privacy, security, and other compliance activities for all of Intel’s information assets, products, and services.

During his career he has received numerous security and IT industry accolades from many organisations including RSA, Computerworld and (ISC)2. He is a Fellow with the Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology, a non-partisan think-tank providing guidance on cybersecurity to the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, and a variety of federal agencies.

“Due to the emergence of GDPR and other compliance measures, organizations need full control and awareness of their data at all times in order to meet regulatory requirements,” said Harkins. “MinerEye’s application of artificial intelligence and machine learning brings a fresh vision and approach to the complex fields of data governance and data protection, providing organisations a scalable and comprehensive solution for tracking and protecting sensitive data.”

MinerEye enables companies to discover, organise and track vast information assets by scanning enterprise data repositories at the byte and pixel level. Sensitive data is mapped, tagged and secured according to data protection and compliance regulations including GDPR, HIPPA, PCI-DSS, SOC2, and EU-US Privacy Shield.

Its flagship product DataTracker helps companies reduce data storage, fast-track and monitor cloud migration, protect previously undetected, undermanaged and unclassified data against security breaches, and continuously audit information to maintain regulatory compliance.

“Malcolm is one of the best known and widely respected cybersecurity leaders in the U.S. and globally, and we are honored to have him join our advisory board,” said Gideon Barak, chairman and co-founder, MinerEye. “His participation on our board is a strong vote of confidence in MinerEye’s vision, technology and approach.”
