The combined expertise of these new additions, positions FourV to further advance their dedication to helping organizations manage business risk as it aligns with IT operations. Stuart Solomon, Senior Vice President of Security Solutions and Operations at Optiv, and Richard Parry, Principal at Parry Advisory will join the board.
“The communications breakdown between IT security and the board and C-suite lies in the lack of consistent performance measures and the resultant risk measures in security operations,” said Derek Gabbard, President of FourV Systems. “At FourV, we endeavor to provide tools that will enhance this communication process and allow leaders to start including for IT risk on the spectrum of business risk. These gentlemen bring invaluable expertise to our team and with their support we will continue pushing the limits of innovation.”
Stuart Solomon’s expertise lays in the direction and design of organizations solutions and services businesses. Before his current role at Optiv, Stuart served as Optiv’s Vice President of Strategy, Innovation and Research where he focused on connecting the dots between technology and business processes while taking into account architectures, strategies and operational considerations.

Richard Parry is a career risk management executive with experience that spans the globe with international financial institutions, including Visa International, Citigroup, and JPMorgan Chase. Most recently, Richard formed Parry Advisory, a venture dedicated to promoting clear-thinking in risk management, and providing thought leadership on the importance of solving problems as they are experienced rather than as they are perceived. With his seasoned background, Richard provides FourV with risk management consultation as it pertains to the financial industry.
"FourV provides senior business executives and technology managers accessible, familiar, businesslike data about the health of their cyber security framework. I think of it as constant risk management insight rather than event-driven management of technical security," says Parry.
