Below is our recent interview with Julia Lancaster from ISTARI:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your organisation?
A: Established in 2020 by Temasek, an investment company headquartered in Singapore, ISTARI is a global cybersecurity platform with a unique model. It is an advisory practice, investor and educator through its cyber Academy. Headquartered in London, ISTARI has a global presence in the US, Europe and Singapore.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Fundamentally, ISTARI invested in PAI because its clients need a quantifiable perspective on cyber risk that allows them to understand their own posture better. There are also significant collaboration opportunities with the rest of the ISTARI portfolio.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: ISTARI has a global vision: to bring top-quality cybersecurity products and services to clients thoughtfully and coherently. ISTARI’s global team of seasoned experts help clients navigate the ever-shifting challenges of the cyber resilience journey. Keeping these challenges in mind, ISTARI’s investment team curates the Collective with some of the best talent and capabilities in the industry.
Q: What can we expect from your agency in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: ISTARI will continue to announce investments externally in due time, but investments are just one aspect. ISTARI continues to structure strategic engagements with clients and, through its cyber Academy, is deepening individuals’ understanding of cyber resilience and digital risk management.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: Today’s stark reality is that as businesses accelerate the pace of their digital transformations, threats posed by bad actors become increasingly varied and sophisticated. As a result, cyber resilience has become a top business imperative. ISTARI believes that a combined power of talent, knowledge and technology is needed to build this digital resilience. The collective power of ISTARI’s experts, capabilities, perspectives and innovation aims to improve its clients’ cyber resilience and de-risk their market engagement.
