Hikvision Names Chuck Davis Director of Cybersecurity in North America
Hikvision USA Inc., the North American leader in innovative, award-winning video surveillance products and solutions, announced that Chuck Davis has been named director of cybersecurity for Hikvision North America.
With more than 20 years’ experience building world-class cybersecurity programs for large enterprise organizations, Davis comes to Hikvision from IBM, where he worked as an executive security architect. He designed and managed the global malware defense and vulnerability management programs at IBM, and was a thought leader and architect of IBM’s Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT). From 2011 to 2015, Davis worked for The Hershey Company as manager of global cyber defense, building and managing the company’s comprehensive cyber defense program.
“Hiring Chuck Davis is an important milestone for Hikvision North America,” said Jeffrey He, president of Hikvision USA Inc., and Hikvision Canada Inc. “As the largest video surveillance provider in the world, we have a responsibility to also be a leader in cybersecurity defense. We’ve made significant investment in the Hikvision cybersecurity program over the past few years. We’re continuing to step up our efforts.”
In addition to his work as a cybersecurity professional, Davis is an adjunct professor of computer science at the University of Denver, teaching master’s degree courses in ethical hacking and computer forensics.
