At Cygilant, they are passionate about helping organizations of all sizes build a comprehensive enterprise-class security program. The company has an ambitious goal to be the #1 customer-centric organization in the IT Security industry.
Acting as an extension of their customers’ IT teams, Cygilant, a pioneer in hybrid security as a service, provides continuous security operations based on best-of-breed technology at a fraction of the cost of alternate solutions. Cygilant is also a trusted advisor to organizations that need to improve their IT security and compliance posture and protect against cyber threats and vulnerabilities.
However, there is an inspiring story at the heart of this company. Former Formula 1 race car driver, Rob Scott is president and CEO of cybersecurity provider Cygilant. But I wanted to learn more about how being a professional race car driver has impacted his career and share some of the lessons learned while racing that have shaped his career as a top executive.
Rob joined Cygilant with a proven track record of accelerating a company’s growth and helping them capitalize on new markets and opportunities.
Since becoming CEO of Cygilant last year, Rob has helped re-create the company by strengthening its leadership team, cornering a crowded cybersecurity market by appealing to resource-constrained medium-sized businesses, and most recently, opening a new office and security operations center (SOC) in Belfast, Northern Ireland – in the middle of a pandemic.
In addition to his Formula 1 career, Rob is a great storyteller with no shortage of tales from his diverse background and job experiences that resonated with me.
