Security Expert Paul Kurtz Joins Nisos Board of Directors

Nisos, the Managed Intelligence℠ company, today announced that noted security and intelligence expert Paul Kurtz has joined the company’s Board of Directors. A longtime advisor and leader in matters of cyber risk, counterterrorism and critical infrastructure protection, Kurtz brings experience and insights from a long career in public-private sector coordination and guiding action against rapidly evolving global risks. His arrival continues a year of rapid growth and opportunity for Nisos, including $6 million in new funding and the appointment of David Etue as CEO.

“Paul’s background shaping the evolution of intelligence and information-sharing across cyber, geopolitical and industry dimensions make him an outstanding addition to the Board,” said Nisos CEO David Etue. “We are excited about having Paul join us and are sure to benefit from the perspective he brings to the table.”

“Nisos is positioned where the avenues of cyber and business risk intersect. Executives, security and intelligence teams are demanding unique skills and are increasingly challenged to anticipate, identify, and counter new and more sophisticated adversaries,” Kurtz added. “Technology alone cannot fulfill this mission, it takes a diversity of insights, experience and tools to truly deliver timely, relevant and actionable intelligence. It is a privilege to come aboard and join Nisos at this exciting stage.”

Kurtz began working on cybersecurity at the White House in the late 1990s. He served in senior positions relating to critical infrastructure and counterterrorism on the White House's National Security and Homeland Security Councils under Presidents Clinton and Bush. Since leaving government, Kurtz has held numerous private sector cybersecurity positions including founding the Cyber Security Industry Alliance (Acquired by Tech America), serving as Executive Director of SAFECode, Managing Partner of Good Harbor Consulting in Abu Dhabi and as CISO of CyberPoint International. He also is a founding board member of the Cloud Security Alliance and Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of TruSTAR, which was acquired by Splunk in May 2021.

Nisos’ Adversary Insights℠, Intel as a Service and Zero Touch Diligence℠ offerings fuse cyber intelligence with threat investigation techniques to identify and disrupt adversaries before they cause harm to an organization.
