Netenrich announced the appointment of Christopher Morales as Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and Head of Security Strategy to its leadership team. Morales will oversee the strategic development, implementation, and market execution of the company’s security solutions and processes.

Morales brings to Netenrich over two decades of information security experience, most recently leading advisory services and security analytics for Vectra AI. Throughout his career, he has advised and designed incident response and threat management programs for some of the world’s largest enterprises.

“We are thrilled to welcome one of the industry’s finest leaders to our team,” said Raju Chekuri, Chairman and CEO at Netenrich. “Chris brings proven expertise to help our customers and partners up level their security operations and move forward on their digital IT transformation journey.”

“Today’s security infrastructure is falling behind in keeping up with the surge of attacks and IT complexities,” said Chris Morales, CISO at Netenrich. “I’m excited to drive the next wave of modern security operations focused on ‘business continuity’ instead of ‘prevention only’ mindset and technologies which no longer apply to dynamic computing environments. It’s about building a new focus on ‘resilience’ across IT, cloud and security for our customers.”

Morales has held roles in cybersecurity engineering, consulting, sales and research. Prior to his role at Vectra, Morales held roles at HyTrust, NSS Labs, 451 Research, Accuvant, McAfee and IBM. He is also currently a council member with CompTIA Cybersecurity and advisory board member for Saporo.
