Trusona, a pioneer in passwordless multi-factor authentication technology, announced recently that it made the strategic appointment of four new members to the company’s advisory board, including Theresa Payton, Chris Roberts, Tom Reilly, and Victor Nichols.

The advisors have decades of experience across the cyber, defense, and enterprise software industries. And Trusona’s new advisors will continue to enrich the company’s passwordless solutions and aid in addressing the important needs of security practitioners.

During a time where global cyberattacks are rapidly increasing amidst a growing global dependence on digital channels, the advisors’ expertise in helping secure the sensitive assets of enterprises by adopting modern technology has never been more critical.

Now Trusona’s board of advisors now includes:

Frank Abagnale

Abagnale is known as one of the world’s most respected authorities on fraud, embezzlement, and secure documents. And for over 40 years, he worked with, advised, and consulted with hundreds of financial institutions, corporations, and government agencies around the world. His story provided the inspiration for Steven Spielberg’s 2002 film “Catch Me If You Can.”

Geoffrey Moore

Moore is an author, speaker, and advisor — who splits his consulting time between start-up companies in the Wildcat portfolio and established high-tech enterprises, most recently including Salesforce, Microsoft, Intel, Box, Aruba, Cognizant, and Rackspace. And Moore’s life’s work has focused on the market dynamics surrounding disruptive innovations.

John McCracken

McCracken holds a 29-year track record of success accelerating sales growth at technology companies and expanding global market categories for several leading technology firms. And he held executive management positions at American Express, Checkfree Corporation, Mercury Interactive, Inovis, and Jive Software.

Theresa Payton

Payton is one of the nation’s leading experts in cybersecurity and IT strategy, currently serving as CEO of Fortalice Solutions (an industry-leading security consulting company). Payton has a new book, Manipulated, and she previously served as the first female CIO for President George W. Bush.

Chris Roberts

Roberts is considered one of the world’s foremost experts on counter threat intelligence with over 20 years of experience working in enterprise, industrial and government segments addressing evolving security threats.

Tom Reilly

Reilly brings 30 years of leadership in the enterprise software industry. He most recently served as CEO of big data company, Cloudera. Prior to Cloudera, Reilly was the GM of Enterprise Security at HP post acquisition of cyber-security firm ArcSight, where he served as CEO and led its IPO and subsequent sale to HP.

Victor Nichols

With deep experience leading successful companies, Nichols currently sits on the Board of Directors for Revlon, Bank of Hawaii and Zovio. Nichols previously served as CEO Harland Clarke Holdings, CEO North America at Experian and CIO at Wells Fargo.

“We are delighted to welcome these respected security experts and trailblazers to our advisory board who will strengthen our mission to thwart cybercrime,” said Ori Eisen, founder and CEO at Trusona. “They join Trusona at an exciting time as we continue to expand and deepen our passwordless solutions to seamlessly serve security leaders across the enterprise. We are confident the addition of these advisors will provide valuable perspectives in effectively executing our strategy, and we’re proud that Trusona continues to attract experienced professionals who are dedicated to protecting businesses and users alike.”
