Exchange Platform AlphaPoint Names Sri Manda As Chief Information Security Officerbr>
AlphaPoint, a blockchain company enabling institutions to launch, scale, and operate digital asset networks and exchanges all over the world, has appointed Srikant “Sri” Manda as its first chief information security officer.
With a specialty in financial services, Manda brings 15 years of cybersecurity governance, architecture, and operations experience. He has previously worked in cybersecurity operations with Citigroup and TD Bank. More recently, he led security architecture and engineering teams at Juniper Networks and Fortinet. Manda has a strong background in Security Strategy, Governance, Architecture, Automation, Machine Learning, and Product Security.
“One of the reasons I am especially excited to join AlphaPoint is that it’s clear that the company already prioritizes security — internally as a company as well as for its customers,” said Manda. “For example, their partnership with Intel offers a trusted security-focused solution backed by Intel’s Software Guard Extensions (SGXs).”
“There is a lot of scrutiny around hacks and lost funds on cryptocurrency exchanges and we do not take this challenge lightly,” said AlphaPoint co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Joe Ventura. “We work every day to protect our clients and ensure the safety and security of our products and customers through multilayer cybersecurity, physical security, and operational best practices. Sri coming on board doubles down on our commitment to be a security first company.”
