Major General (retired) Dr Marcus Thompson, one of the country’s most experienced cyber strategists, has been appointed Chair of the Board of ParaFlare.
Dr Thompson will replace David Wakeley, who joined ParaFlare as a start-up business and has been instrumental in leading the business as it continues to grow.
David Wakeley said “I’ve worked with Marcus for a number of years, and we are incredibly fortunate to secure his leadership at a time when cyber security is front-of-mind for many businesses, and has the potential to impact our national security.”
David Wakeley will remain on the Board as a Non-Executive Director.
“I look forward to working with Marcus and seeing how his experience will shape ParaFlare – Australia’s largest managed detection and response business.
Marcus Thompson said “When I left the Australian Army, I made a commitment to work who with Australian businesses and support our cyber security industry. I’ve worked with ParaFlare as a strategy adviser for the past two years, and am honoured to be appointed as the Chair of the Board.
“ParaFlare is a human cyber capability with some of the best cyber operators I’ve seen. I’m proud to work with such talented people, in a truly Australian organisation that was built on skills developed on the battlefield.
“Any Australian businesses or organisation going to market to find a cyber security provider should be looking in their own backyard, and supporting the growth of our local industry. If you’re looking for a security partner to protect your network from cyber criminals around the clock, look no further than ParaFlare.”
