In 3 bullets, summarize why this professional or team deserves recognition:
- Expanding the global cybersecurity ecosystem by increasing awareness of the insider threat and educating the industry of the impact of security vulnerabilities
Christy Wyatt joined Dtex Systems as CEO in August 2016 to continue growth for the company. She joined Dtex after serving as CEO and President at Good Technology Corporation, where she led the company through an acquisition by Blackberry in 2015. Before this, Wyatt supported Motorola Mobility’s acquisition by Google in 2012.
As Dtex CEO, Wyatt is dedicated to solving customers’ greatest security problems, drawing awareness to the rise of the insider threat and focusing on protecting organizations’ employees and IP. She has been instrumental in securing new partners globally, including Fujitsu, Delv, Carahsoft and The Hague, to bring advanced user behavior intelligence to Europe, APAC and North America.
Earlier this year, Wyatt partnered with Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, to talk publicly about the events that transpired within the DNC and how these hacks started with an insider. Mook and Wyatt appeared in The Hill, Dark Reading and POLITICO to discuss how even national organizations are not safe from security vulnerabilities posed by negligent employees. The partnership garnered so much attention that Mook and Wyatt will appear together again at Dtex’s Insider Threat Summit London to discuss how commonplace these threats are worldwide.
Wyatt’s leadership and accomplishments has earned her numerous accolades that underscore her management successes including being named one of Inc. Magazine’s “Top 50 Women Entrepreneurs in America,” and one of the “Most Influential Women in Wireless” by FierceWireless. Wyatt is frequently cited in the media as a leading expert on cybersecurity, having been quoted in publications such as Forbes, Bloomberg Businessweek and the Wall Street Journal.
Wyatt serves as a member of the board for Centrify, a leading Identify and Access Management solution provider. She’s also a member of Abilities United, a non-profit organization enriching the lives of individuals and families with developmental disabilities.
