Living Security, a provider of security awareness software and the leader in Cybersecurity human risk management, announced it has added Denmark Francisco as the company’s Chief Marketing Officer.
Francisco joined Living Security in October as a growth advisor and quickly took over as interim CMO before now taking on the role full-time. His addition comes on the heels of the company closing a $14 million Series B investment led by Updata Partners, to build out its Unify human risk management platform.

One of Francisco’s top priorities will be driving demand for the new platform, which builds on Living Security’s cybersecurity training platform to leverage behavioral data and analytics to measure and manage human risk.
“The human element of cybersecurity has been neglected for far too long,” said Francisco. “Most companies do the bare minimum to train employees so they can meet compliance requirements, but they don’t actually improve behavior and they certainly haven’t stopped attacks and breaches, which continue at an alarming rate.”

Francisco has an extensive background in cybersecurity, having served as a growth advisor at The Defence Works, which was acquired by Proofpoint, and former chief marketing officer at the largest provider of security awareness training organization. He joins a growing executive team at Living Security, which added Mark Collura as its first Chief Revenue Officer in January.
“As we pioneer the new human risk management category, Denmark is the perfect person to help us educate the market on this unmet need and drive demand for our new Unify platform,” said Ashley Rose, CEO and co-founder of Living Security.
