NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CybelAngel, the leading digital risk management platform providing superior threat intelligence to some of the world's largest brands, announced today that veteran cybersecurity executive Todd Carroll has joined as Vice President of Cyber Operations. Carroll brings with him over 20 years of experience in the FBI's cyber, counterintelligence, and counterterrorism branches.
Carroll will be instrumental in evangelizing CybelAngel's data leak detection technology throughout North America, and will be responsible for managing the U.S. cyber operations unit. Carroll aims to help cement CybelAngel's place as a staple technology within U.S. enterprises' cybersecurity stacks.
"CybelAngel's motivations are fundamentally about protecting others, which is why my transition into this position after decades of public service is so satisfying," said Carroll.
Prior to joining CybelAngel, Carroll served as the Deputy Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's fourth largest field office, in Chicago. Carroll oversaw investigations related to cyber and physical security, threat intelligence, risk analysis, compliance, insider threat identification and mitigation strategy.
"CybelAngel is the only threat intelligence platform looking at organizations' data breach challenges the right way - from all sources across the entire internet," said Carroll. "The most critical breaches are taking place outside network perimeters, where employees and third parties inevitably expose sensitive information, often through connected devices. From my perspective, this is the only technology capable of comprehensively monitoring for these kinds of breaches. And I think CybelAngel's expanding customer base in the U.S. is evidence of that."
"We feel very fortunate to have Todd joining our team. The range of cybersecurity incidents and digital threats he has encountered and resolved is almost impossible to match," said Erwan Keraudy, CEO of CybelAngel. "His experiences at the FBI will prove invaluable not only to our customers in the U.S., but also those abroad."
Carroll holds four GIAC certifications in information and cyber security, an M.S. in Cyber Security from University of Maryland (UMUC), and a B.S. in Law Enforcement Administration from Western Illinois University. Carroll also graduated from Carnegie Mellon University's CISO-Executive Education Program.
