Dan Dennis has been named Hyland’s Senior Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).
In his role, Dennis is responsible for leading Hyland’s security vision, evolving the information security programs and practices and protecting all corporate, customer, partner and employee data. Building on almost 25 years dedicated to security, developing programs from the ground up and providing oversight of enterprise software as a service solution for organizations of all sizes, Dennis’ focus at Hyland will be the centralization and evolution of its security programs into a unified strategy. His expertise and new perspective will help ensure Hyland’s security strategy and teams are aligned and equipped to handle and respond to the organization’s growth.
“I’ve been fortunate in my career to lead the strategic development and adoption of security programs for start-ups to large global enterprises,” Dennis said. “I’ve gained deep experience in defining the right strategies to protect information, mitigate risk and ensure compliance, while managing costs and maintaining highly engaged teams. I’m excited for the new unique challenge at Hyland, to evolve a successful, established security program that sets the foundation to best support Hyland’s next-generation, cloud-native offerings.”
Before joining Hyland, Dennis was the Vice President and CISO at Benefitfocus and, prior to that, CISO of the Talent Management Solutions portfolio at IBM, where he managed successful large-scale technical projects within high-growth and rapidly changing environments. Dennis received his Bachelor of Science in Finance and Marketing from Boston College and sits on multiple boards, including the South Carolina Tech Executive Forum and Carolina CISO Leadership Board.
