6point6 Group, the leading technology consultancy specialising in digital, emerging technology and cyber, has announced on Tuesday that Michael Aminzade has been appointed as the new managing director of the Cyber business unit.
6point6 has grown significantly in the last seven years and the Cyber business unit has been a cornerstone of this growth. Michael brings with him over 20-years of experience within the cyber security, governance, risk and compliance (GRC) industry and will support the further success of the business unit and delivery of key projects for clients across the public and private sectors.
According to a recent Government report, only 16 per cent of board-level executives understand the current climate of cyber security threats. Michael will be instrumental in driving a number of upcoming exciting strategic initiatives and services aimed at educating board members on the importance of a robust cyber strategy.
David Webb, CEO of 6point6 said, “Michael’s appointment as MD of Cyber is an exciting step forward for the firm. His industry expertise, along with his commitment to working closely with clients to achieve their business goals, will be an invaluable asset as we look to continue our strong growth in cyber.”
Michael Aminzade, MD of Cyber at 6point6 said, “It is a very exciting time to join 6point6. As the cyber and regulatory landscapes evolve, we continue to further develop our cyber capabilities and I look forward to building stronger partnerships with our clients.”
Michael previously worked as VP Global Compliance and Risk Services at Trustwave as well as CISO Americas/ CISO EMEA at Verifone.
