PhishMe Inc. Appoints Websense Inc. Chief Security And Strategy Officer To Executive Board

Jason Clark will play a key role in PhishMe’s expansion in the U.S. and abroad

CHANTILLY, VA, Aug. 29, 2012 – PhishMe Inc. today announced the appointment of Jason Clark, Chief Security and Strategy Officer, Websense Inc., to their executive board. PhishMe Inc. offers a turnkey service that helps change employee behavior in responding to targeted phishing attacks – the number one attack vector used to compromise corporate and government networks today.

PhishMe, which provides phishing awareness training for employees of government agencies, universities, and large enterprises, immerses employees in a real-world spear phishing experience. Through customizable scenarios that emulate real phishing attacks against an organization, PhishMe provides the opportunity to actually change behavior, rather than just warn users of the potential dangers an attack can pose to an organization.

Jason Clark will play a key role in PhishMe’s expansion in the U.S. and abroad. With Jason’s expertise and strong background in the security space, PhishMe looks to expand future technology partnerships while continuing to enhance the product line and provide a premier level of professional services to its customers. Before joining Websense, Jason held the Chief Information Security Officer position at Emerson Electric Co., a diversified global manufacturing and technology company that provides innovative solutions to customers through its network power, process management, climate technologies and industrial automation. Jason is also well-known for his previous role as CISO for the New York Times.

“Jason’s expertise and experience in large enterprise security will bring a powerful and unique perspective to PhishMe. We look forward to integrating Jason’s strong background in security with PhishMe’s unique technology and hope this will be a long and beneficial relationship,” said Rohyt Belani, CEO and Co-Founder, PhishMe.

“PhishMe’s technology is changing the way we educate enterprise, university, and government employees,” said Jason Clark, Chief Security and Strategy Officer, Websense Inc. “Having led the security strategies of large enterprises, it is clear that upgrading physical technology alone will not solve the information security crisis and protect personal information. Educating employees needs to be a primary step, and with PhishMe, organizations can do so with a creative and effective technology.”
