Xcina expands into the North with first appointment

Xcina, the London based information security and assurance company, is pleased to announce that it has made its first senior hire in the North of England, with Lytham St. Anne’s based Kevin Porter being appointed as Business Development Director.

As part of the London stock exchange listed, digital resilience group, Shearwater Group plc, Xcina helps companies protect their critical information assets by preparing them for the increasing legislative and regulatory demands on how data is held and processed and the on-going monitoring, analysis, detection and response to cyber threats.

Kevin has a wealth of applied IT, cyber and artificial intelligence experience, particularly within large enterprises having spent a significant part of his career working for the British Army, BAE Systems and Airbus.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for me to lead the growth of a dynamic and innovative company that already has excellent working relationships with UK Government influencers.” said Kevin.

“Being part of the Shearwater Group enables Xcina to leverage the collective expertise across the wider group and I’m particularly pleased to be establishing Xcina’s presence in the North.  I look forward to meeting some of our existing and potential clients in the very near future.”

Xcina’s two service offerings comprise:

  • Xcina Consulting, which is focused on providing governance, compliance, cyber security and technology risk assurance and advisory services; and
  • Xcina Services, a provider of Security Operations Centre (“SOC”) services, data analytics, threat intelligence, and incident response.
