Veteran cybersecurity leader, Craig Burland, has joined cybersecurity IT company Inversion6 (formerly MRK Technologies) as a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). In this role, he will work directly with the firm’s clients, building and managing security programs, as well as advising them on cybersecurity strategy and best practices. The announcement comes on the heels of the company’s rebranding and focus on expanding its legacy of strong managed IT solutions for large- and mid-size companies.
Burland brings decades of pertinent industry experience to Inversion6, including his most recent role leading information security operations for a Fortune 200 Company. He is also a former Technical Co-Chair of the Northeast Ohio Cyber Consortium and a former Customer Advisory Board Member for Solutionary MSSP, NTT Global Security, and Oracle Web Center.
“Craig is a seasoned cybersecurity leader with a successful track record in this industry, and we’re thrilled to have him on the team,” said John Tookman, Inversion6 Chief Revenue Officer and Senior Vice President. “Our goals of eliminating reactive and helping customers mature their cybersecurity programs are front-of-mind at Inversion6 and Craig’s background aligns nicely with these efforts.”
“Inversion6 is a well-respected and trusted partner in the cybersecurity community with a unique approach to tackling today’s challenges,” said Burland. “I’m excited to join such an innovative, knowledgeable team and help our customers strengthen their cybersecurity programs.”
Founded more than 30 years ago in Cleveland, Inversion6 has been helping clients build strong technological foundations, grow their businesses and feel secure with their IT solutions for decades.
