SUNNYVALE , Calif. – Feb. 25, 2019 – RiskSense®, Inc., pioneering risk-based vulnerability prioritization and management, today announced Christopher Smith, vice president of global security services at CenturyLink, has joined its Board of Directors.
“We are pleased to welcome Chris to the RiskSense Board,” said Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala, co-founder and CEO at RiskSense. “His deep experience in the service provider arena will play an important role in expanding RiskSense’s managed security services capabilities and our collaboration with CenturyLink for delivering security risk management as a service to enterprise and government customers.”
Smith is responsible for product development across CenturyLink’s global security solutions portfolio. Previously, he was vice president of voice, UCC and contact center product management at Level 3 Communications, a multi-national network services provider that was acquired by CenturyLink in November 2017.
