Singtel has appointed Eric Harmon as the chief executive officer (CEO) of its global cyber security arm, Trustwave.

Harmon most recently served as advisor to SecureTrust, a division of Trustwave, and in his new role, will report to Stuart Harvey, chairman of Trustwave’s board and executive committee.

Prior to his time at SecureTrust, Harmon served as executive vice president of operations at DXC where he was responsible for its $25 billion offering portfolio, including offer strategy, development, sales, delivery and overall financial performance. In addition, he oversaw the chief technology office, global solutioning, and performance management functions.

Harmon also held a similar position at HP Enterprise Services and prior to joining HP in 2013, he was a senior partner at McKinsey, holding several leadership positions in its technology and enterprise sales practices.

“Eric’s extensive experience in the enterprise solutions space and successful transformation and turnaround of Trustwave’s SecureTrust business in the past year, makes him a natural fit for the CEO role,” said Harvey.

“He is a proven leader with business and technical savvy, and his familiarity with Trustwave will allow him to take on the new responsibilities seamlessly. We are confident that he is well-placed to lead the team to accelerate Trustwave’s growth strategy to become a global leader in cyber security.”

Harmon enters the role as Art Wong steps down as Trustwave CEO after entering the role in 2018.

“Art has provided strong leadership over the past three years and has been instrumental in growing Trustwave’s capabilities. We are grateful for his contributions,” added Harvey.

In related news, the start of October saw Singtel deploy Singapore’s first 5G standalone (SA) trial network at its 5G Garage testing facility.

The network, which uses 3.5GHz spectrum and Ericsson’s advanced Massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology to deliver high-speed and low-latency, gives enterprises early access to 5G.
