Sysnet today announced that they have appointed Angie Mariner as their new African Regional Manager due to phenomenal growth within this region over the past 12 months.
Angie will oversee all business activity in Africa on behalf of Sysnet. Angie has a strong project management background in the Information Security Assurance industry, having worked within the industry for a number of years.
"We are delighted that Angie is joining Sysnet's South African office as our new Regional Manager. We believe that Angie's experience and skill set will be beneficial to Sysnet in gaining a stronger foothold within the African region" said Tom Moynagh, Managing Director at Sysnet.
"I am delighted to be joining a company that is rapidly expanding globally and one that is targeting Africa" said Angie Marriner. "As a native South African, I believe that there is a lot of potential within the African region for Sysnet to expand further".
"As a result of economic growth within the African region, there has been a significant increase in the number of business transactions which has led to more sensitive information being stored, processed and transmitted by organisations. This has inevitably led to an increased demand for Information Security Assurance related services such as Documentation Review, PCI DSS audits, PCI DSS training etc. I believe that Sysnet Global Solutions are well positioned to deliver a high quality level of information security services to African organisations in the future" said Angie Marriner.
Sysnet have also appointed a number of Qualified Security Assessors for South Africa and are in the final stages of recruiting a Business Development Manager who will work closely with Angie in her role as Regional Manager. Further key hires are expected in the near future as Sysnet continues to expand in this region.
