Chris Krebs has been appointed as chair of its new CISO Advisory Board.

In this role, Krebs will create and lead a strategic CISO advisory board to help private, and public sector organisations tackle the unprecedented growth of cyber attacks, including ransomware.

"Chris has experience navigating and resolving some of the most significant cyber attacks of the decade and is uniquely positioned to chair this new CISO Advisory Board," Rubrik CEO and co-founder Bipul Sinha says.

"Together, we will resolve the cybersecurity dilemma every government and organisation faces."

In his new role, Krebs will work with Rubrik to assemble some of the nation's top CISOs across multiple industries, from healthcare to critical infrastructure to financial services and others.

With a focus on the future of cybersecurity, the mission of the board will be to facilitate information exchange and thought leadership in data security and deliver key insights to guide Rubrik's data security product innovation.

"Rubrik is defining the future of data security. I'm excited to be working closely with Rubrik to recruit top information security experts and practitioners to fight cybercrime and shape a more secure and resilient digital future," Krebs says.

Members of Rubrik's CISO Advisory Board will be selected based on their Industry expertise, current position, and contributions to advance cybersecurity throughout their career.

Rubrik is committed to building unparalleled cybersecurity and cyber policy expertise. The company recently announced Michael Mestrovich as its new chief information security officer, who most recently served in the same role at the CIA.

Rubrik also expanded its board of directors over the past year to include Cisco CFO Scott Herren, who is a member of the NZTech Board and AI Forum Executive Council, and Puppet CEO Yvonne Wassenaar.
