Cyber defense solution provider DruvStar has announced a new advisory council to offer strategic guidance and help the company grow in different markets.

The members of the advisory council include Rich Miller, CEO at Telematica Inc; Vik Shrestha, Chief Commercial Officer at SB22; Seth Young, Managing Partner of The Strategy Organization and Chief Strategy Officer at FSG Digital; and Sean Kanuck, CEO of Exedec LLC.

DruvStar, which provides its services to sports betting operator PointsBet, has noted that its advisory council of “highly accomplished business leaders” will help the company tap into the “transformational potential” of its data and cyber defense products.

“We have curated our council of advisors diligently for the depth and breadth of their experience, and commercial and strategy acumen,” commented Manjit Gombra Singh, CEO and Founder of DruvStar.

“We are thrilled that these exceptional and well-respected leaders will increase our value to our customers.”

DruvStar advisory council filled with experience

A thought leader in data protection and privacy policy development, Miller brings a background in ICT infrastructure and middleware; network and data security; and data engineering to the advisory council.

He has previously served as a senior executive and in business development, product marketing, and corporate strategy line roles. 

On the council, Miller will focus on the company’s business and product strategy, in addition to the identification of broader markets.

Miller stated: “DruvStar DataVision’s reliance on data…the patterns of its movement, the flow of processing and process context, as well as access patterns, is novel and highly effective in threat preparation, identification of anomalies, and determination of remedial action. It promises to change the way threat defense is accomplished.”

Shrestha will guide DruvStar’s sports betting and igaming business expansions, bringing a thorough understanding of the emerging gaming business trends with a leadership background in business development, commercial strategy, and product innovation to the council.

“DruvStar has an exceptional team of cyber security specialists and has a great opportunity to be a market leader in the gaming industry,” said Shrestha.

“Knowing their industry-leading capabilities combined with their commitment to delivering exceptional client service, I am excited to be a Strategic Advisor and support the continued growth of the business.”

Young brings to the council leadership in strategy and innovation, and will aim to help DruvStar become “a leading B2B technology solution in the gaming ecosystem and beyond”.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of the DruvStar journey. As legal interactive gambling continues to be enjoyed by tens of millions of people around the world, industry-focused cybersecurity solutions must be adopted to ensure ongoing operational integrity and retain consumer trust,” commented Young.

“DruvStar’s solution for the gaming sector is second to none, built and led by battle-tested veterans of industry. I look forward to assisting in DruvStar’s growth.”

A strategic thought leader who advises governments, corporations, and entrepreneurs on the future of information technology, Kanuck was the first US National Intelligence Officer for Cyber Issues from 2011 to 2016. 

He has also worked in the CIA’s Information Operations Center, advised the White House as an Intelligence Fellow, and worked on the Global Commission for the Stability of Cyberspace. 

With expertise in cybersecurity, intelligence analysis, national security, and risk management, Kanuck will advise DruvStar on its data protection and information defense.

Kanuck stated: “DruvStar – and especially its new DataVision solution – represents a unique platform for advancing corporate cybersecurity practices and effectively managing the collection, structuring, analysis, and utilization of data that is key to enterprise value.”

Back in August, DruvStar expanded the reach of its cybersecurity services after receiving licenses to operate in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Arizona.
