Jerry Pender: Do topo do FBI para a Cibersegurança Privada



“Qualquer empresa que se sinta segura é ingénua” afirma Jerry Pender, o até agora CIO do FBI que acaba de passar à privada e integrar a Z Capital Partners. “Se não está preocupado com isso, então, não sabe o que se passa”, continua Pender que vai dirigir tudo o que é cibersegurança na Z Capital Partners e ser responsável pela fase due diligence nas empresas a adquirir pelo grupo. “What we don’t want is to acquire a company and then find out later that there was some big IT time-bomb underneath it the whole time that we didn’t catch. It’s also important to know if a company has the right IT team in place and, if not, help to put it there.”

The FBI’s top techie is headed to the private sector

Jerry Pender has spent the past three years as chief information officer and executive assistant director of the FBI, but Pender is now leaving public service, recently agreeing to join Z Capital Partners as a full-time operating partner.

“I’ll be engaged a lot in the due diligence phase, looking at the strengths and weaknesses of the IT in the companies we’re looking at acquiring,” Pender explains. “What we don’t want is to acquire a company and then find out later that there was some big IT time-bomb underneath it the whole time that we didn’t catch. It’s also important to know if a company has the right IT team in place and, if not, help to put it there.”

“I think any company that feels secure is naive,” Pender says. “If you aren’t worried about it then I don’t think you know what’s going on. The right approach is about more than just detecting a breach, because they are almost certainly going to happen. What’s key is making sure you’re on top of it to minimize the damage.”
