Cybersecurity and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Leader to lead launch of RegOps movement to shift compliance left into the modern era
TYSONS CORNER, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RegScale, a leading continuous compliance automation software company, today announced the appointment of cybersecurity industry veteran and diversity, equity and inclusion thought leader Larry Whiteside, Jr., to Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).
Whiteside, Jr., is President and Co-Founder of Cyversity, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to the academic and professional success of Minority Cybersecurity students and professionals. Cyversity offers members undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships, leadership training, professional development, mentoring opportunities, career placement services and more.
“I am thrilled to join the industry leaders and experts here at RegScale who have succeeded in developing the world’s first real-time Governance Risk and Compliance platform,” said Whiteside, who spearheaded Cyversity’s mission to achieve consistent representation of women and underrepresented minorities in the cybersecurity industry through programs designed to diversify, educate, and empower. “Just as Cyversity is changing the face of cybersecurity with a diverse community of cyber professionals, so too is RegScale revolutionizing the compliance industry by bridging the divide between security and compliance.”
As CISO, he will lead the launch of RegScale’s highly anticipated RegOps Community, intended to revolutionize the industry’s approach to compliance by enabling heavily regulated organizations to evolve and improve compliance and trust at a faster pace than organizations using traditional compliance artifact development and compliance management processes. Whiteside joins RegScale following two decades of private sector cybersecurity leadership, prior to which he served as an officer in the U.S. Air Force focused on cybersecurity.
“RegScale is creating more than just software, we are spearheading a compliance movement that is based on a set of well-defined principles and establishing a new discipline known as RegOps,” said Anil Karmel, co-founder and chief executive officer, RegScale. “Larry’s depth of experience building the Cyversity Community from the ground up, along with the trust and respect he has garnered industry-wide in doing so, set him apart as the ideal candidate to lead the RegOps Community.”
“The RegScale team continues to demonstrate their depth of collective experience in solving the most difficult and complex compliance problems facing large, regulated enterprises while leveraging an easy-to-implement, scalable platform,” said Jay Leek, managing partner, SYN Ventures, and chairman, Board of Advisors at RegScale. Earlier this month, RegScale announced the completion of a $20 million Series A funding round led by SYN Ventures.
