CEO: Glenn Chisholm
Obsidian Security was founded in 2017, and in February closed a $20 million Series B round led by Wing Venture Capital to transform how enterprise identity is monitored and secured.
The Newport Beach, Calif.-based company's intelligent identity protection offering analyzes user activity, permissions and configuration data with advanced machine learning to enable better security and identity management. The platform provides complete visibility, smarter identity lifecycle management, and efficient incident response and forensics to help organizations protect their users and critical assets.
Two months later, Obsidian appointed data ethicist Laura Noren as VP of privacy and trust to protect data subjects’ privacy and advocate for fairness in statistical and machine learning models. Noren’s new role at Obsidian is a proactive privacy and data ethics position integrated into the data science and engineering teams, which the company said is a first in the cybersecurity industry.
