Who are you looking to bring in, and what are you hoping they'll experience?

Anyone that has critical data or intellectual property that someone would be interested in stealing for some reason. If we had to segment our customers, I'd say we're medium-sized to enterprise and large enterprise. That is our core focus area. And organizations that are subject to regulatory and governance concerns around critical data, or have intellectual property that, if a company were to lose, would become some sort of market issue for them. That's the general focus area for the company.

What are the areas of expertise or specialty for the employees working here?

This is going to be our behavioral analytics center of excellence. So our head of behavioral analytics Toby Ryan will be based here. And that is the group that has developed software engineers that are responsible for building out our behavioral analytics platform, we call it Forcepoint Behavioral Analytics. And then within that capability set, we also have our group called X-Labs, which is our behavioral research lab. And that group has everything from mathematicians to data scientists to behavioral psychologists working there. So when you get this fusion, a cross-discipline set of scientists working on behavioral algorithms, those behavioral algorithms are then passed to the Forcepoint Behavioral Analytics platform. They come together to create what we called human-centric cybersecurity. So this is going to be the center of excellence for all things behavioral.
