SecurityWeek announced today that it has named Ryan Naraine as Editor-at-Large, adding a veteran cybersecurity journalist and podcaster to its editorial team.

Naraine joins SecurityWeek from Intel Corp., where he most recently served as Director of Security Strategy and leader of the chipmaker’s security community engagement initiatives. Prior to Intel, he managed Kaspersky’s Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT) in the U.S., a team that researched and documented some of the most well-known Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) groups and targeted attacks around the world. During a career that spanned a decade at Kaspersky, Naraine also co-managed the global Security Analyst Summit (SAS) conference series.

Prior to Kaspersky, he was the Founding Editor at Threatpost, and a security journalist with bylines at ZDNet and eWEEK.

In this newly created role, Naraine will work to expand SecurityWeek’s innovative multimedia content offerings and help execute the publication’s editorial vision.

In addition to editorial responsibilities, Naraine will join the management team of SecurityWeek’s industry-leading cybersecurity events portfolio, including its high-profile CISO Forum, Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Cyber Security Conference series, and the company’s SecuritySummits event series, a lineup of eight (8) fully immersive, topic-specific virtual events.

“Despite the headwinds stemming from a pandemic, SecurityWeek experienced record growth in 2020,” said Mike Lennon, Managing Director at SecurityWeek. “Ryan’s journalistic background, combined with his technical knowledge and vast network in the industry, will help keep the momentum going as we enter our next stage of growth. We are beyond thrilled to have Ryan join the SecurityWeek team and could not be more excited about our company positioning.”

“It’s exciting to return to my roots in journalism,” Naraine said, noting that his work will focus on showcasing the work of innovators building groundbreaking security technologies and executing effective security plans. “Too much of today’s security news focuses on data breaches, zero-day attacks and sensational topics, ignoring the defenders in the trenches building the tools and security programs to keep us all safe. I want to help change that by highlighting the important work being done in the background to help defenders,” Naraine added.
