Padraic O'Reilly
Chief Product Officer & Co-Founder at CyberSaint

Padraic O’Reilly is Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder at CyberSaint, where he leads product innovation and development. His experience as a Harvard-trained economist, IT risk and compliance consultant, and his rapid exposure to Cybersecurity led him to seek out CISOs, CIOs, and Boards of Directors at global organizations to pursue the answer to the question – how can cyber be managed, measured, and understood like any other business function? Padraic’s current activity spans working directly with organizations from public agencies to private companies across the globe to understand how to measure cyber risk, especially amidst the global pandemic which is fueling massive digital transformation projects around the world. Padraic was a key member of the group providing feedback on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework during its development, and is an expert in regulatory standards both in security and privacy, including the NIST Risk Management and NIST Privacy Frameworks. An expert in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and economic modeling, Padraic works with members of the Global 500 to research and deploy risk quantification, risk intelligence gathering, and risk reporting and communication strategies. Padraic also holds a patent entitled, “System And Method for Monitoring And Grading A Cybersecurity Framework” which has inspired much of his work on cohesive IT and cyber risk management approaches.
