Guard Dog Solutions, Inc., dba guardDog.ai, announced today the appointment of a new advisory board member, Stephen O’Donnell, an award-winning business transformation executive and author of “What Every CIO Wants – A Guide for Global Technology Salespeople.” O’Donnell brings global-scale experience in digital transformation to guardDog.ai from his extensive background in building and restructuring systems, teams and processes within the banking, insurance, construction, professional services, telecommunications, retail, and payments industries.
O’Donnell has served as a senior executive for many technology companies. He was CEO at GreenBytes Inc. (acquired by Oracle), Founder at DCMI, Managing Director at ESG, and Global Head of Data Centre Operation at British Telecom. His resume also includes CIO at Coventry Building Society, Gallagher, and G4S plc, and as CTO at MS Amlin, and several senior roles at Barclays, Cable & Wireless (Vodafone) and Deutsche Bank. He has also served on the advisory board of Fusion-io.
Said O’Donnell, “The Covid pandemic has fundamentally changed the cyber threat surface. Employees are now deploying their digital assets into a home network that is shared, unprotected, unmonitored, unpatched, has no virus or malware protection, and is wide open to attack.”
“guardDog’s smart AI can sniff out vulnerabilities, and by extending the security operations center into the highest risk territory of the corporate network, the unprotected edge, like hotels and home networks, they offer a convincing approach for really helping to keep the bad guys out,” O’Donnell continued. “When I was approached to serve on the guardDog advisory board, I knew that I had to accept this opportunity to make a difference.”
Said Lester Mower, Chairman of the Advisory Board, “Stephen has deep experience and knowledge in managing, guiding and advising high growth companies at global scale. His insights will be invaluable for our advisory board team as guardDog advances its mission to simplify cyber security.”
