Why Businesses Need Cybersecurity Risk Management

In an exclusive interview with eChannelNews’ Publisher Julian Lee, Procure IT Managing Partner Dylan Bouterse discusses his new role as head of cybersecurity consulting and how the company can help businesses with cybersecurity risk management.

As a Procurement-as-a-Service provider, Procure IT delivers value to clients primarily through cost evaluation, performance improvement and risk mitigation. Bouterse focuses primarily on Procure IT’s risk mitigation initiatives, including monitoring the cyber landscape and responding to emerging cyberthreats. Additionally, Bouterse leads the development of new processes and tools, including a living database of cybersecurity solutions to streamline vendor evaluation, sourcing and ongoing risk management.

“I come from the trenches as an engineer, which gives me the technical foundation to understand and respond to our customers’ needs more quickly and efficiently,” said Bouterse. “The governance, risk and compliance space is vast and ever-changing with new tech emerging daily. My role as security practice lead is to ensure we augment our clients’ teams, enabling them to focus on the line of business and rest assured their data and systems are protected by the best solutions and services for their businesses.”

Before coming to Procure IT, Bouterse worked more than two decades as a solution engineer and cybersecurity consultant. Most recently, Bouterse was Chief Solutions Officer for Krewe Advisory Group (KAG), one of four companies that originally formed Procure IT. Previously, he was Director of Solutions Engineering at RapidScale Inc., a managed cloud services company acquired by Cox Communications, and a Senior Solutions Engineer at TierPoint, a leading cloud and data center company.
