AttackIQ has expanded its leadership team with Julie O’Brien as CMO and former Pentagon chief strategy officer Jonathan Reiber as senior director of cybersecurity strategy and policy.


AttackIQ’s Julie O’Brien

O’Brien will lead AttackIQ’s global brand strategy and help drive demand for the platform in key markets. She joins the company from Nutanix where she served as senior vice president of corporate marketing.

“The cybersecurity industry is notoriously crowded, but AttackIQ’s novel approach offers value to customers, partners and the security ecosystem at large,” she said. “The company has a unique opportunity to be the Switzerland of the security stack — providing an independent assessment of how solutions perform against real-world attack scenarios so enterprises can close security gaps and solution providers can improve their product offerings.”

O’Brien brings more than 20 years of global marketing and leadership experience. She previously held roles at Good Technology, Box, Cisco and SightPath.

“Julie has a strong track record leading high-performing marketing teams in both startups and large enterprises. We are thrilled to have her talents at AttackIQ,” said Brett Galloway, AttackIQ’s CEO.

Reiber will shape strategic communications and industry thought leadership. In addition to Pentagon chief strategy officer, Reiber was Illumio’s head of cybersecurity strategy and Technology for Global Security‘s senior adviser.

“In today’s climate, every organization should adopt an adversary mindset to inform their cybersecurity strategy,” he said. “AttackIQ systematically tests organizations’ cyber readiness against real adversary tactics, from the Russians to the Iranians, to criminal organizations. This unique approach can help cybersecurity professionals in the private and public sectors do their job better.”

“Jonathan will be an incredible asset to AttackIQ as we continue to strengthen our leadership position in the breach and attack simulation market,” said Carl Wright, AttackIQ’s chief commercial officer. “He will provide excellent insights for our platform.”

In February, AttackIQ announced an updated Accelerate channel program to better serve its global partner community.
