Theresa Payton, founder and CEO of Fortalice Solutions, is energized to announce the promotion of Kathy Lu to Director of Application Security.

“Cyber attackers inherently watch industries and their digital transformation efforts. As everything moves to mobile, attackers are unfortunately having tremendous success exploiting critical mobile and web application vulnerabilities,” said Payton. “Helping organizations protect applications and the sensitive data they hold is of utmost importance. Fortalice is dedicated to rapidly enhancing the application security discipline within the cybersecurity community so we can do better as a whole.”  

Through a proactive application security mindset as well as testing and training, vulnerabilities within applications can be identified to prevent these attacks. “Kathy is already a trusted partner for many Fortalice clients,” Payton added. “Under Kathy’s leadership, the Fortalice Application Security team will provide application security frameworks, tools, and training to ensure Fortalice client web and mobile applications are protected from malicious cyber actors.”
