Wed 18 Oct 2023

Sherweb recently announced the promotion of Laura Holdright to the position of Vice President of Security and Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC).

This appointment demonstrates and reinforces Sherweb’s ongoing commitment to the safety of employees, partners and customers across the company’s business lines and operations.

As the security landscape continue to evolve, Laura’s background conducting comprehensive operational reviews and audits to improve risk and compliance policies and processes, organisational practices and defined procedures represents another layer of protection against cybercrime.

“Since joining Sherweb in September 2022, Laura has demonstrated impactful leadership and expertise in the realm of Security and Compliance,” said Alain Brisson, Sherweb’s Chief Operating Officer.

“Her strategic thinking and commitment to upholding the highest standards have significantly contributed to Sherweb’s security posture and will ultimately also benefit our managed service providers (MSPs),” said Brisson.

“The cybersecurity threat landscape continues to evolve at a rapid pace, organisations must remain diligent in their efforts to identify and initiate new cybersecurity practices. This includes MSPs when it comes to protecting their clients against cyberthreats,” said Laura Holdright.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to lead such a fantastic security organisation, and with this new role, to be able to further support Sherweb’s strategy in realising our cybersecurity objectives,” added Holdright.

Laura has previously worked in IT companies such as BlackBerry, and both US and Canadian start-ups. She holds an LLM in business law specialising in privacy and regulatory compliance.
