She previously spent 14 years in London, holding senior leadership positions at Human Works Matters, Microsoft, Financial Conduct Authority UK, Aviva Investors and Accenture.

Loubser holds a Bachelor of Commerce with an honours year in industrial relations from Stellenbosch University (South Africa), and a law degree from Birkbeck, University of London.

Other recent senior appointments include San Francisco based chief marketing officer Junie Dinda (ex Atlassian), and Seattle-based senior vice president of strategic alliances Vikram Ghosh (ex Citrix).

Having acquired 120 new enterprise customers in the first half of 2021, Secure Code Warrior recently signed its 400th customer.

The company's customer list includes Zoom Video, Reddit, Mastercard, the BBC, DBS Bank, the Singapore Government, TotalEnergies and Blue Prism.

"We have seen the ongoing impact of software-related breaches like SolarWinds and increased attacks on critical infrastructure influence government policies and business priorities across the globe. The likes of Biden's Executive Order and Australia's state-based cybersecurity strategies highlight the increased need to build developers' security skills, rather than implement bandaid, after the breach 'remedies'," said CEO and co-founder Pieter Danhieux.

"The necessity to foster security-conscious developers traverses industries, and we're working with leading organisations to help secure the software that does amazing things in our world – from government bodies needing to safeguard national assets to automotive manufacturers securing connected systems in cars and beyond."
