January 9, 2023 – Andy Hickman and Tim Conti of ON Partners recently assisted in the recruitment of Harold Rivas as chief information security officer of Trellix, a cybersecurity company based in San Jose, CA. Mr. Rivas’ appointment is part of Trellix’ ongoing effort to drive the future of extended detection and response, the company said, adding that his leadership will enable Trellix to “best protect against threats, manage compliance needs and third-party risks, and implement industry-wide best practices.” Mr. Rivas will lead Trellix’s global security and compliance initiatives.
Mr. Rivas joins Trellix from loanDepot, where he served as CISO.
