SecurityScorecard has elevated its vice president of legal, Owen Denby, to general counsel. Denby, who joined the New York City-based information security company last July as assistant general counsel before being promoted to vice president of legal in October, will starts his new role immediately.
Denby helped lead the company’s first M&A deal earlier this year. In this capacity, he assisted SecurityScorecard’s acquisition of New York-based forensics firm LIFARS, which brought 50 employees to the company.
Prior to this, Denby was director of legal and business affairs at digital health care platform Rally Health, and held associate roles at Hogan Lovells, Weil, Gotshal & Manges, and McDermott Will & Emery.
As general counsel, Denby will lead SecurityScorecard’s legal function and report to chief business and legal officer Sachin Bansal, who has served as general counsel for more than two years.
SecurityScorecard was founded in 2014 and helps companies assess their cybersecurity risks by providing security ratings. The company last year raised $180 million in funding, which gave it a valuation just shy of $1 billion.
