BT announces Kevin Brown as new Head of Security Business
BT has announced the appointment of Kevin Brown as Managing Director of BT Security, where he will be responsible for the company’s physical and cybersecurity activity around the world.
Brown, who succeeds Mark Hughes, joined BT in 2012, following a 20-year career in law enforcement. He has specialised in security throughout his time at BT and in previous roles led its global investigation and intelligence teams and driven the modernisation of BT’s protection systems.
“I’m thrilled to be leading BT’s security operations at a time when the need to protect households, business, governments and entire nation states from damaging cyberattacks has never been greater,” said Brown.
“Our global network gives us a ringside view of the latest threats, so we can anticipate and mitigate emerging attacks before they impact our business or our customers. Our expertise in securing BT’s global network is why organisations around the world trust us to protect their most critical assets. I’m really looking forward to continuing the rapid growth that BT Security has seen in recent years.”
BT’s Security business is one of the company’s fastest growing areas, driven by the industrialisation of cybercrime and the need for organisations and individuals to take proactive measures to protect their digital assets.
