Mark Duffell, president and CEO of Episerver, said, “With the necessary global focus on data privacy and security laws in the wake of many very public cyber attacks, we recognize the vital role security and IT infrastructure plays in delivering secure business applications in the cloud in a way that complies with rapidly evolving legislation. Ongoing investment in our products as well as compliance initiatives like Privacy Shield, ISO27001, and the European Union (EU) general data protection regulation (GDPR) is paramount to our continued growth and success, and Sue brings the right mix of vision and leadership to help us achieve our goals on behalf of our customers around the world.”
