Dan Dennis has been hired as Senior Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer. In his role, Dennis is responsible for leading Hyland's security vision, evolving the information security programs and practices and protecting all customer, partner and employee assets and data. Building on almost 25 years dedicated to security, developing programs from the ground up and providing oversight of enterprise SaaS solutions for organisations of all sizes, Dennis's focus at Hyland will be to centralise and evolve its security programs into a unified strategy.
Hyland says Dennis' expertise and new perspective will help ensure the company's security strategy and teams are aligned and equipped to handle and respond to the organisation's ambitious growth plans.
"I've been fortunate in my career to lead the strategic development and adoption of security programs for startups to large global enterprises," Dennis says.
"I've gained deep experience in defining the right strategies to protect information, mitigate risk and ensure compliance while managing costs and maintaining highly engaged teams.
"I'm excited for the new unique challenge at Hyland, to evolve a successful, established security program that sets the foundation to best support Hyland's next-generation, cloud-native offerings."
"Security is a critical component of every organisation's strategy, especially in the evolving world we live in where digital-first interactions are preferred," Hyland executive vice president and chief product officer John Phelan says.
"Dan's history, expertise and leadership within the security space will greatly benefit Hyland across the breadth of the company. Dan's expertise spans corporate, product, cloud security and most importantly, how to deploy them in usable ways. He's a great asset to our team and I'm looking forward to collaborating with him to support our customers and partners."
Before joining Hyland, Dennis was the vice president and chief information security officer at Benefitfocus and, before that, chief information security officer of the Talent Management Solutions portfolio at IBM, where he managed successful large-scale technical projects within high-growth and rapidly changing environments.
