Ashish Surti has assumed responsibility for Colt's information and cyber security strategy following his appointment as Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). He also heads up Colt's Computer Security Incident Response team.
Surti brings 15 years of security experience to Colt, moving from TSB Bank where he was the first CISO, accountable for duties including information risk management, security consultancy & architecture and cyber intelligence and response.
Surti reports directly to Chief Technology Officer Rajiv Datta.
"With the ever present risk of cyber attack and increasing pressure from global threats, secure network connectivity matters now more than ever to organisations across all markets and industries," said Surti.
Datta added: "Cyber security is a critical consideration for organisations of all sizes and across all sectors, and having talented and experienced leaders within our team is essential for us to maintain our own security and that of our customers' networks."
