Trustwave Managed Security Services Executive Wins Thought Leadership Award from SC Media

September 19, 2018

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 19, 2018--SC Media has named Trustwave Senior Vice President of Managed Security Services Chris Schueler to its exclusive list of industry thought leaders in the second-annual SC Media Reboot Leadership Awards.

At a time when cyberattacks and threats are on a sharp rise both in frequency and severity, Schueler has been a driving force in shaping how organizations incorporate the managed security services model to complement internal security efforts. His deep understanding of the evolving threat landscape has directly led to new modus operandi within Trustwave around how managed security services are delivered to customers using actionable threat intelligence to identify and remediate security anomalies and eradicate attacks quickly.

“We at SC Media have witnessed many impressive achievements in cybersecurity in the past year,” said Teri Robinson, executive editor, SC Media. “But Chris Schueler has truly distinguished himself through his valuable contributions, which continue to advance the industry as it grows in both size and importance.”

Schueler’s vision and architecture of the newly launched Trustwave SpiderLabs Fusion Center, a pioneering cybersecurity command center for managed security services delivery, weighed heavily in SC Media’s recognition choice. The center “fuses” ethical hackers, forensic investigators and threat hunters forming highly specialized teams that monitor for, detect and instantly kill even the most concealed threats inside an organization down to individual endpoints. Critical research and new threat intelligence derived from the Center is pushed to Trustwave Managed Security Services customers allowing for preemptive action against rapidly spreading malware or attack campaigns targeting specific vulnerabilities and industries.

“The shortage of high-level security talent needed to contend with a growing multi-billion-dollar criminal empire focused on stealing data and infiltrating systems is forcing organizations to consider the managed security services model to help shore up defenses,” said Chris Schueler, senior vice president of managed security services at Trustwave. “Through the Trustwave SpiderLabs Fusion Center we have redefined how threat intelligence is used, and security resources distributed to remediate threats. I’m honored for SC Media’s recognition and my team’s great accomplishments.”

A celebration of industry leaders who are positively impacting and advancing the field of cybersecurity, the awards program is an extension of SC Media’s annual Reboot edition. In this end-of-the-year special, which is published both in print and online, the almost 30-year-old brand’s editorial team identifies the best and brightest cyber professionals and their many achievements.

The contenders who were nominated for various categories faced a thorough judging process conducted by SC Media’s editorial team. This included a review of their professional backgrounds, references and work undertaken to benefit the wider industry, as well as any other research deemed necessary by editorial leaders. Winners were then chosen based on their outstanding service, qualifications and advancements in the cybersecurity industry.
