CyberCX, Australia’s largest independent cyber security services company, has announced the appointment of Phil Mason as its new CEO in the UK. The company is looking to replicate the growth and success it has seen in Australia since its formation in 2019.
Phil Mason brings two decades of experience in the cyber security industry to the role. He has held senior positions at IRMSecurity, part of the Capgemini Group, where he led cyber transformation strategies for some of the most influential public-sector organisations and global enterprises.
In his new role as CEO, Mason will drive the growth of CyberCX in the UK market. He will focus on supporting new business and talent acquisition, working closely with the global leadership.
Commenting on his appointment, Mason said, “CyberCX has burst onto the global cyber security scene, and I am thrilled to be leading the UK business to replicate the success it has seen in Australia. With cyber threats becoming increasingly complex and frequent, there has never been a more important time to safeguard businesses against cyber security threats. I look forward to leading our UK team in helping our clients navigate this complex landscape and stay ahead of the curve.”
CyberCX has been expanding rapidly in recent years, with the company now operating in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, and the USA. Mason’s appointment as UK CEO is part of the company’s ongoing growth strategy, which aims to establish CyberCX as a leading provider of cyber security services within Five Eyes markets (an intelligence alliance between the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand).
John Paitaridis, CEO of CyberCX, added, “Phil’s extensive experience and track record for growth in revenue and services, combined with his dedication to customers and building high-performance teams, make him the ideal person to lead our operations in the UK. We look forward to working with him to become the UK’s leading independent provider of cyber security.”
