New York, NY, February 3, 2021 – Cybersecurity business intelligence company CyberRisk Alliance (CRA) today announced the appointment of respected cybersecurity education, media and event executive Tony Keefe as Executive Director and VP Strategic Partnerships for its CRA Learning - events portfolio. Keefe joins CRA from MIS Training Institute (MISTI), where he was President & CEO and led operations of InfoSec World Conference & Expo and its related digital properties, which were acquired by CRA in 2019.
In his new leadership position, Keefe will be charged with driving growth and developing deeper client relationships within CRA Learning’s product portfolio, as well as across CRA through large scale, integrated solutions.
