June’s issue of Executive Perspective features Rich Fennessy, CEO of Kudelski Security, a provider of cybersecurity solutions with clients that include Fortune 500 enterprises and government organizations in Europe and across the United States. Kudelski Security is a division of the Kudelski Group — a publicly traded company on the Swiss Exchange with $1B in revenue — and Rich leads the global expansion of the Group’s cybersecurity activities.

With 30 years of international management experience in the IT industry, including his previous role as CEO of Fishnet Security, Rich examines the biggest challenges for business leaders today. He also discusses how Kudelski Security is working with clients and manufacturer partners to address the rapid shifts in the industry — from cloud to the Internet of Things. In addition to discussing the company’s M&A philosophy, Rich identifies the advantages of being a part of a publicly traded group that operates with a long-term view.

Closing with advice that “if you’re not learning every day, then you’re not moving forward,” Rich offers a fresh perspective on what it means to be on the front end of change in the cybersecurity landscape.
