Thales has announced the appointment of Gary Miller as vice president of Cybersecurity in the Middle East.
Miller will lead Thale's new Cybersecurity Hub which is being established in Dubai. The Cyber Hub, which has an initial team of ten security experts, will will serve as an integral platform to bolster organisations against this new threat landscape and futureproof businesses and governments for success.
The new appointment compliments Thales's global strategic drive to future-proof its customers and stakeholders across the world.
Miller, who was previously managing director of Thales Cyber and Consulting UK, managing 160 consultants with revenues over 20m Euro, brings with him over 15 years of expertise in cyber and technology for start-ups and large international corporates. Miller will lead his team to deliver products, systems and consulting services to existing and new clients across the group's entire portfolio in the UAE and wider Middle East, while leveraging the group's best in-class solutions and services.
He commented: "I'm extremely excited to be bringing Thales's world-renowned expertise into a region that is leading the charge in digital transformation adoption. The opportunities for businesses and citizens alike are endless but with this we must always remain vigilant of the threat that this fast-paced adoption can bring. As we approach Expo 2020 and look towards achieving our Vision 2021 goals, a key objective for us will be to help the region become more mature in its cyber awareness and culture. Through our long-standing industry knowledge and locally tailored services and solutions, Thales is best placed to assist our stakeholders through this incredible transformation currently taking place across the region."
