Armor,
a leading cloud security solutions provider, announced today that
Rafal Los, Armor's Vice President of Solution Strategy, has been
appointed to the Security
Advisor Alliance's Board of Advisors
. Founded in 2013, the Security
Advisor Alliance is a charitable organization made up of 500 members
worldwide. The Alliance is focused on cybersecurity and is led by a
board of Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and senior security
leaders from some of the top organizations across the globe, including
CapitalOne, GE, IBM, Mastercard, Microsoft, Royal Bank of Canada,
Starbucks and Walmart, among others.

As a new board member, Los is working with the Alliance in their current
endeavor to promote the cybersecurity industry to the next generation
and to ensure that students, teachers and schools have the resources and
mentorship necessary to foster the cybersecurity professionals of the
future. The Alliance is also working to promote diversity and create
opportunities in the industry for underserved students.

"I have been an active member of the Alliance since its inception
because I really believe in their mission," said Rafal Los. "The
Alliance provides cybersecurity professionals a forum to share their
experiences and expertise and support one another while trying to solve
some of the most complex and challenging problems plaguing the
cybersecurity industry. However, just as importantly, the Alliance
focuses on giving back to our working and living communities where we
can do tremendous good," continued Los. "I am really proud to be a part
of that, and I am especially excited about the work the Alliance is
doing to educate current and future generations about cybersecurity,
helping them be safer and more security conscious in their increasingly
connected world."

"Rafal has worked with the Security Advisor Alliance in various
capacities for the last three years, and he has been an important
contributor to the group's efforts in driving membership, research and
showcasing its members," said Jerry Archer, President of the Board of
the Alliance. "Having a veteran in developing security strategies, like
Rafal on our board, is tremendous because the knowledge and expertise
Rafal is able to share with our members is invaluable, especially as
more and more companies leverage new technologies."
