BlackDice, a Leeds and Malaga-based cybersecurity start-up, has appointed Mark O’Neill as its new Chief Technology Officer (CTO). O’Neill brings a wealth of experience and expertise to BlackDice, strengthening the company’s position as a key player in the cybersecurity market.

With an extensive career in cybersecurity, most recently as Senior Security Advisor at DXC Technology and eight years at Hewlett Packard, O’Neill has played a pivotal role in both companies’ security strategy.

Now joining BlackDice, he will lead the company’s technological vision, spearheading innovation and driving transformative growth across all aspects of the company.

As the CTO, O’Neill will be responsible for overseeing the development and execution of company’s technology roadmap. His knowledge in security, software development, and IT infrastructure will play a crucial role in enhancing the company’s existing offerings, as well as developing new customer-centric solutions.

“Welcoming Mark to the team as our Chief Technology Officer is an important milestone for us,” said Paul Hague, CEO of BlackDice. “His proven track record in technology leadership and strategic vision will be invaluable as we continue to innovate and grow as a start-up.”

O’Neill will be based in Leeds at the company’s new UK headquarters and will help drive the company’s innovation agenda.

O’Neill expressed his excitement about joining BlackDice, stating, “I am honoured to join a company with such a strong commitment to both technological excellence and serving the end user, ensuring safety and privacy is a top priority. I believe BlackDice has the unique ability to help Tier 1 and Tier 2 telecommunications providers evolve their security strategy and address their customers’ specific pain points – from keeping families safe online to mitigating operational disruption – like no other in the sector. I look forward to working alongside the talented team to further elevate the company’s capabilities and drive continued growth.”
