We’re pleased to announce that we’ve hired Ken Morford as SpatialKey’s Information Security Officer. In this role, Ken is responsible for ensuring the company’s enterprise programs are adequately protected—and for aligning SpatialKey’s security initiatives with its clients’ business objectives.
Ken brings 15 years of experience to this senior position, drawing on his background in multiple areas of security, including architecture, risk, incident response, penetration testing, and application. Ken is also a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), and a member of the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA).
Ken has a proven track record of defining, implementing, and monitoring security programs across a variety of industries, including banking and telecommunications. Before joining SpatialKey, Ken worked at Sutherland Global Services, where he led global incident response, vulnerability assessment, and architecture security teams.
In addition to ensuring SpatialKey continues to adhere to the security framework outlined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Ken will work with SpatialKey’s development team to consistently evaluate and improve security controls throughout its software and infrastructure ecosystem.
“I am excited to be working with a company that has the foresight to make security a priority,” says Ken. “When it comes to software these days, security is simply another word for quality.”
SpatialKey’s continued commitment to security is something its clients are sure to appreciate as well.
“Security is critical to our clients,” says CTO Brandon Purcell. “Having someone with Ken’s experience on board will not only help us calibrate our security processes, it will enable us to stay one step ahead of potential threats—and give our clients peace of mind about their businesses continuing to run smoothly.”
