PRESS RELEASE: Sera-Brynn Names Former Virginia Secretary of Technology to Advisory Board

Suffolk, VA – Virginia-based Sera-Brynn, a global leader in cybersecurity compliance and risk management, announced today that it has named former Virginia Secretary of Technology Karen Jackson to its advisory board.

Jackson served as the Commonwealth’s technology chief from 2014-2018 and was senior advisor to Governor Terry McAuliffe on all technology matters including innovation, data analytics, telecommunications, cybersecurity, unmanned systems and smart communities. In her role as Secretary, Jackson also oversaw all of Virginia’s IT infrastructure.

“Sera-Brynn is becoming recognized as a global leader in cybersecurity compliance and risk management and I’m honored to be part of their team,” said Jackson. “They’re right here in my backyard, providing the right counsel at the right time as our nation and the world moves toward a more connected business and consumer climate. It’s an exciting time to be joining them and I’m looking forward to helping a Virginia-based business grow.”

Sera-Brynn was named last month as the global number four cyber compliance and risk management firm by the Black Book Research rankings, conducted amongst a poll of cybersecurity professionals, products and consultants.

“Government and large organizations are facing existential threats online and without the proper cybersecurity and risk management, they remain extremely vulnerable,” said Rob Hegedus, Sera-Brynn Chief Executive Officer. “We’re pleased that someone with Karen’s background and experience has accepted an invitation to join our advisory board and we’re looking forward to working with her to ensure businesses are ready to compete and protect their data in the 21st Century.”

Sera-Brynn’s primary focus is helping commercial organizations interpret and meet cybersecurity regulations and subsequently manage risk. Their client base includes some of the world’s largest and most recognized brands in the defense industrial base and the financial services industry. They also counsel government agencies, manufacturers along the supply chain, healthcare and life sciences companies, cloud service providers, and colleges and universities worldwide.
