SixThirty | September 02, 2021

SixThirty today announced the appointment of David Fairman and Dustin Wilcox as Partners and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs)-in-Residence. Together, Fairman and Wilcox will offer seasoned cyber expertise and guidance to SixThirty's portfolio of early stage fintech, insurtech, privacy and digital health companies.

"As the velocity and sophistication of cyber-attacks and data breaches rise exponentially across the globe, security practices and controls must be designed and integrated into the fabric of our investments from the ground up. No longer can solutions have security bolted on as an afterthought." said Atul Kamra, SixThirty's Managing Partner. He continues, "In an age of rapid digital transformation, speed to adoption and speed to market are all the rage, but the underappreciated factor in scaling enterprise technology start-ups is speed to trust."

The creation of these roles will allow SixThirty to accelerate trust, cross-pollinating cyber risk and privacy capabilities across the entire portfolio as Wilcox and Fairman work directly with entrepreneurs pre and post-investment.

"In partnering with SixThirty, we will help ensure that resilient and secure enterprise technology solutions are brought to market, ultimately helping deliver solutions that make a positive impact across the global cyber security industry," Fairman said.

Focusing on security controls across the entire portfolio will also generate greater returns in the long run. Wilcox states, "Investing in more secure solutions will result in a more sustainable portfolio. As CISOs-in-Residence, we'll ensure we're bringing value both to SixThirty's portfolio companies, and to its investors."

Fairman currently serves as Chief Security Officer (CSO) for Netskope APAC, the world's fastest-growing private cybersecurity firm. He was previously CSO at National Australia Bank. Wilcox is Vice-President and CISO for Anthem, a Fortune 30 global leader in managed healthcare. He previously served as Vice-President and CISO for Centene
