Changes at the top at Invicti Security

Invicti Security has made a key addition to its leadership team, as Matthew Sciberras becomes VP of Information Security and CISO and Mike Mattos has been promoted to Chief Customer Officer. This announcement comes on the heels of five new leadership hires and the addition of investor and cyber security veteran Gerhard Watzinger as Chairman of the Board.

“As Invicti prepares for a momentous 2023, both Matthew and Mike have incredible technology track records and experience in creating customer-centric strategies that will help us carry out our company-wide strategy of Appsec with zero noise,” said Invicti CEO Michael George. “I am excited to welcome Matthew to our team and pleased to recognise the promotion of Mike as I know both will deliver on our commitments of creating great experience and value for our customers.”

Sciberras has worked in technology for 20+ years, with a focus on Infosec for the past 12. Doing his first ISO 27001 implementation in 2010 for an e-learning platform company, Sciberras found his passion for Infosec, which later led him to work in operational security and eventually become a certified ethical instructor and a freelance penetration tester. He joined a well-known mainstream Igaming company in 2015 and was responsible for operational security, then led the department as Director of Information Security. Over this past year, he worked for another Igaming company focusing on strategy and governance. With his experience in regulated industries, ISO 27001, and compliance, his knowledge is invaluable for providing the best products and experiences for Invicti customers.

“Invicti offers the best DAST solution on the market,” said Sciberras. “I’m looking forward to continuing to propel our InfoSec strategy so Invicti’s products meet the highest compliance and risk management standards today.”

Mattos is a technology industry veteran with 15 years of experience leading global customer success and sales teams. He joined Invicti in 2019 and, over the past three years, has been instrumental in building a world-class customer experience. Mattos and his teams are focused on providing Invicti’s 3,600+ customers maximum value through meaningful customer journeys, ensuring they can protect their application perimeter but also see clear ROI on their application security programmes.

“I am thrilled to continue my career at Invicti and lead our global customer teams in delivering maximum value to our customers, so they can secure all web applications and APIs and reduce the risk of a data breach,” said Mattos. “We are focused on building better and more seamless education and enablement experiences for our customers – reducing the noise and helping them boost their security posture.”

The addition of Sciberras and the promotion of Mattos is a tremendous start for the organisation this year. From expanding its industry-leading DAST products on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace to enabling its customers to scan over 420,000 web applications, the organisation is prepared to scale in order to best meet the needs of today’s Devsecops professionals”, concluded Michael George.
