Cyber attack solutions provider CovertSwarm has appointed Will Morrish as its new chief revenue officer.

Morrish has been tasked with spearheading the development and implementation of CovertSwarm’s sales and commercial strategy.

CEO Anders Reeves said: “We’re delighted that we have expanded our leadership team, but particularly proud that it’s through the appointment of Will.

“Will joins CovertSwarm at an exciting time, and will be bringing his expertise to our worldwide client base. It’s clear he’ll have a phenomenal impact on CovertSwarm’s growth and capabilities through 2023 and beyond, helping us to continue challenging the market – and the team couldn’t be happier to have him aboard.”

Morrish has previously worked at Interoute, Alert Logic and Performanta, the latter being a cyber security provider with international customers across Africa, Europe and the United States.

Morrish said: “Every business knows they need protection, but many rely on point-in-time testing, don’t budget enough for the scope that’s needed or aren’t aware of their genuine attack surface.

“You need to get under the fingernails of a business and find out where the real security gaps are – to do that you’ve got to attack like a real adversary, truly breaking into their business.”

His appointment follows a record-breaking year for CovertSwarm, which also saw a recruitment of Julio Taylor as chief marketing officer in November.

CovertSwarm are an expert cyber security provider who run constant cyber attacks for their clients.

They use every possible weapon in the hacker’s arsenal and take a step further than penetration testing that more closely simulates real world threats.

They attack their customers on a constant basis, and when vulnerabilities are found, they raise the alarm before a real attack can take place.
