Mercedes Westcott, John Stewart, Greg Oslan Join ThreatStream Advisory Team

ThreatStreamThree security executives have joined the new advisory board at California-based security company ThreatStream.

Mercedes Westcott, vice president for the public sector group at Cloudera, John N. Stewart, senior vice president, chief security and trust officer for Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO), and OSG Consulting founder Greg Oslan will help provide direction to the company as strategic consultants, ThreatStream said Thursday.

Westcott, an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2015, is reprising the consultancy role she first accepted in January 2014, which she told ExecutiveBiz last year includes dispensing advise on programs and agencies for the ThreatStream platform.

“It’s a privilege to be in the company of [CEO] Hugh Njemanze, [CTO and founder] Greg Martin, [Chief Strategy Officer] Colby DeRodeff and so many of Silicon Valley’s most innovative security leaders, ” Westcott said Thursday.

“In addition to having the opportunity to work with such visionaries again, I see tremendous value in what ThreatStream brings to our government agencies; an enterprise-scale platform for collecting and prioritizing threats that enables rapid analytics and collaboration in a secure community, ” she added.

Stewart, a 25-year industry veteran, is active in security initiatives at Cisco, in the academe and elsewhere, including as Council of Experts member for the nonprofit Global Cyber Security Center headquartered in Italy.

“Helping shape the market and the technology will be the work of the advisory board, and our goal is to see ThreatStream’s customers be successful, ” he said.

Oslan worked with Boeing (NYSE: BA) and AT&T (NYSE: T) Ameritech and Paladin Capital, and also holds advisory roles for Raytheon (NYSE: RTN), RedOwl Analytics and Indiana University.
