IriusRisk appoints Fraser Scott as VP of Product Development.

FREMONT, CA: IriusRisk, the threat modeling platform for application security, announces the appointment of Fraser Scott as Vice President of Product Development. Fraser comes to IriusRisk at a time of extensive market growth to head strategic leadership and direction of the platform's development.

Previously Capital One's Senior Manager of Enterprise Threat Modeling, Fraser brings his expertise in DevOps and Cloud Security and success working with development teams to assist them in understanding and realizing both the requirement and value of threat modeling.

Fraser is delighted to have joined IriusRisk at such an exciting time in its growth. Having spent a large part of his career in DevOps and Cloud, he understands the hurdles and opportunities from changing security left. Organizations must continue to emerge their method to cybersecurity, and a large part of that is how developers think about security. Fraser wants to assist developers and engineers in developing awesome products - protect products - and that needs thinking about security throughout design and development. Ultimately, this needs threat modeling.

Fraser will apply his expertise and understanding to inform design decisions of the IriusRisk platform as the firm makes advances towards becoming more developer-focused and promotes adoption beyond security teams. IriusRisk already does a good job with the heavy-lifting of threat modeling through automation. His job will ensure that the product continues to offer tangible value to customers as they put threat modeling with the development and security teams.

Fraser will work alongside CEO Stephen De Vries, CTO, Paul Santapau, and collaborate closely with the Technical Advisory Board, headed by recently appointed Dr. Gary McGraw as its chair, accompanied by Adam Shostack. Threat modeling and secure design are becoming mainstream practices, and the challenge the customers face is scaling this activity out to the extensive engineering organization.  Fraser's work with OWASP, ThreatSpec, his experience in deploying threat modeling at scale, and his passion for great product design will transform the customers.  The company is tremendously excited to have him on board.
