360Civic is proud to announce that Nicole Fellouris, former CEO of the cyber-security firm Elite Development Group, has joined 360Civic as our Chief Information Security Officer.
Adding Ms. Fellouris is yet another step in our ongoing plan to deliver end-to-end online services to our clients.
Let’s face it – delivering an effective website in 2018 is more complicated than creating a design and adding content. The landscape has changed: today there are security concerns, privacy concerns, hosting concerns, ADA concerns. That’s why 360Civic has assembled a team to handle all of these challenges. Nicole is the newest member of this team.
Fellouris has two decades of experience in cyber security. By adding her considerable expertise to our company’s ongoing commitment to safeguarding client data, 360Civic can significantly expand our capability to assist public sector entities with protection against ransomware and other attacks, compliance with new GDPR regulations, secure credit card processing and PCI compliance.
Is online security critical to public sector websites? Ask the folks in Atlanta, where a ransomware attack crippled online systems for more than week, leaving water bills and parking tickets unpaid and hundreds of court dates that had to be rescheduled, among other issues.
Public sector websites for municipalities, schools, and utilities make particularly alluring targets, because their websites are the central hub for so many vital services.
That’s why 360Civic has always stressed security in our services, and why we are delighted to welcome Nicole Fellouris as an ally in this never-ending battle against hackers and other online threats.
In 2001, Fellouris launched Elite Development Group, a company directly responsible for direct remediation of more than 100 cyber security incidents and breaches.
In 2004, her accomplishments and contributions to the cyber security community were recognized by both federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies, resulting in a board member appointment to the Los Angeles division of Infragard (FBI/private industry organization), inclusion in the Secret Service’s Electronic Crimes Task Force, think tank participation specific to IT security-centric compliance frameworks, and appointment as a Subject Matter Expert in cyber security and cyber warfare.
In addition to achieving PhDc status in clinical neuroscience, Nicole is a graduate of both the FBI and ATF Citizen’s Academies and the FBI’s Infrastructure Liaison Officer (ILO) program, specializing in cyber counter intelligence operations and asymmetric warfare.
Fellouris’s expertise further expands the suite of online services available from 360Civic, which also includes ADA monitoring, mobile applications, web hosting, videos, custom reporting and website design and development. It is our goal to be a one-stop source for public sector clients seeking a more effective and secure online presence.
