Palitronica Welcomes Seasoned Security Executive Dave MacFarlane as Chief Operating Officer

Palitronica is excited to announce the expansion of our executive team, with Dave MacFarlane joining as our Chief Operating Officer. Dave’s proven record building security organizations and capabilities will enable Palitronica to move at breakneck speeds as we rapidly scale our business and technology expansion with the deployment of Anvil RTS™ and Anvil SV-1™ alongside limited partners throughout 2021.

Formerly the founder and president of Escrypt Canada, a Robert Bosch company, and co-founder of the renowned BlackBerry Product Security Group, Dave brings more than 20 years of experience to the role of COO. His experience leading and building high-performing organizations to deliver on security-focused missions will be central to helping Palitronica’s technology partners, and customers reshape their approach to hardware integrity assessment capabilities and supply chain defense.

“Throughout my career, I’ve worked with government and enterprise customers globally to build confidence in their technology acquisitions, and it has always been clear that doing so for hardware adds significant complexity,” said Dave, who established and led the security assurance program at BlackBerry.  “The ground-breaking technology that Palitronica has developed to rapidly and non-destructively determine the integrity of hardware significantly reduces complexity and enables organizations to make rapid and informed risk decisions.”

We are excited to have Dave join the team and bring his tenured security executive experience to Palitronica as we drive forward our mission to safeguard supply chains.
