Former Cisco Systems CISO joins MeasuredRisk

MeasuredRisk has appointed industry veteran John N. Stewart, who brings 'gold star' cybersecurity and business credentials, to its board of directors.

MeasuredRisk, the emerging high-tech data analytics business with deep expertise in global and supply chain risk, has appointed John N. Stewart, a former Senior Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at Cisco Systems and current investor, to its board of directors.

An industry veteran who brings 'gold star' cybersecurity and business credentials to the board, Stewart's appointment marks the firm's coming-to-market as a global supply chain predictive risk engine.

Through his 30-year-plus career, Stewart, the Founder and Owner of Talons Ventures, a San Francisco-based strategy think-tank focused on helping disruptive startup companies identify new opportunities, has overseen a host of ground breaking data security initiatives and new product innovations.

MeasuredRisk CEO, Jason Daley says: "John's unerring ability to anticipate market trends, exceptional business nous and intuition, stellar risk management experience with multiple public companies, and diverse multi-sector connections from venture capital to corporations, is the perfect fit for MeasuredRisk." 

"His 'on the ground' experience in heading a unit responsible for reporting Cisco's security status to its board will enrich our unrelenting innovation drive, while his sharp business acumen will prove invaluable to us as we guide MR forward from boutique data analysis engine to a major global player," he adds.

"As we expand our business and product offerings, we wanted a board member who could shape and communicate the value of MeasuredRisk solutions at multiple levels, from software developers and security analysts at the coalface to c-suite leaders at CEO, CISO, and CIO level," explains Daley.

"The addition of someone of John's depth and caliber to our board adds huge impetus to our scale up efforts. As we position MeasuredRisk as the pre-eminent go-to global market leader for risk-based intelligence-gathering, John's global connections and adept skill in negotiations will help MR grow and diversify its business into new markets and elevate our global reach and footprint," Daley concludes.

Commenting on his appointment, which took effect on June 10, 2021, Stewart said the prospect of joining a trailblazing company at the cutting edge of innovation thrilled him. "The opportunity to add further value to its already world-class team that's helping decision-makers get the jump on threats before they materialise, made this a no-brainer for me," said Stewart, adding: "I'm honoured to join MeasuredRisk's board, and have Talons Ventures invest, as this is yet another 'see the market beforehand' moment."
