Commvault has announced that cybersecurity experts across a host of industries — from security to public sector to technology — have joined the Commvault Cyber Resilience Council.

Council members will advise Commvault on emerging security trends and cyber threats as well as highlight best-practices in cyber resilience, all of which can play a key role in shaping product development, defining partnership opportunities, and guiding business strategies.

The council is chaired by Melissa Hathaway, who served as a top cybersecurity advisor for two presidential administrations, worked extensively with international institutions like NATO and the World Bank, and currently advises leading Fortune 500 companies as President of Hathaway Global Strategies.

“Each new member of the council brings a diverse wealth of experience, from governance and risk management, to developing cutting-edge security products and countering sophisticated cyber threats,” says Hathaway. “I look forward to collaborating with this esteemed group of experts as we work hand-in-hand with Commvault to combat widespread AI-driven threats and advance cyber resilience for organizations around the world.”
