Ensign InfoSecurity has appointed Tammie Tham as CEO, replacing outgoing interim leader Yeoh Keat Chuan to spearhead the provider’s next phase of growth.
As a founding member of the Ensign team, Tham has almost 20 years experience in cyber security and IT, having previously served as executive vice president of Enterprise and Services, the company’s enterprise business portfolio.
This portfolio includes professional services, alongside the designing and building of enterprise-wide cyber security solutions and managed security services.
“In the past year, we have consolidated different leading firms into an integrated end-to-end cyber security provider offering consulting, implementation and managed services underpinned by our own research and development,” Tham said.
”Such integrations are never easy and I would like to thank our chairman and CEO for creating the right environment for success through their leadership, resilience and guidance.”
Prior to joining Ensign, Tham was CEO and founder of cyber security systems integrator Accel Systems & Technologies, while also holding senior leadership roles at BT Frontline, IBM and Netrust.
“I’m looking forward to leading Ensign on to the next phase of its journey, where we are able to cross-leverage our strengths and scale to provide holistic and leading edge services to our customers,” Tham added.
“I’m also excited by the platform that we will now be able to provide to transform our workforce as well as groom the next generation of cyber security talent in Singapore.”
Tham’s appointment comes as Ensign officially unveiled global headquarters in Singapore, backed by the establishment of a new security operations centre.
The facility is powered by a proprietary cyber threat detection and analytics engine, designed to provide “Singapore-centric cyber threat intelligence” to better protect customers in both public and private sectors.
“Tammie has been working closely with the executive team since Ensign was founded and she thoroughly understands the company’s purpose and capabilities,” said Lee Fook Sun, chairman of Ensign.
“I have no doubt that her astute business acumen, strong cyber security expertise and proven leadership skills will sharpen Ensign’s capabilities and strengthen our partnerships and business relations with stakeholders.”
Housing 500 cyber security professionals, Ensign operates as a full-service cyber security provider with expertise in analytics and business intelligence.
“Ensign was established to provide world-class cyber security capabilities to protect organisations in a digital world,” added Keat Chuan, who will remain on the company’s board of directors. “I know of no one better than Tammie to take the company forward to become a leading cyber security player in Singapore and Asia Pacific.”
