Neustar, Inc. (NYSE: NSR), a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information and analysis to the Internet, telecommunications, entertainment, and marketing industries, announced today that Jonathan Coombes has joined the company as Chief Information Security Officer. Mr. Coombes’ responsibilities include cyber and data security, risk management and business continuity. He will be based out of Neustar’s Sterling, VA office and will report to Alex Tulchinsky, senior vice president, Infrastructure and Operations.

“Jonathan’s proven track record of building teams and his strong decision-making skills make him the right leader for our information security strategy,” said Mr. Tulchinsky. “With Jonathan’s guidance, we will continue to look for opportunities to strengthen our processes and standards designed to protect the confidential data of our customers and our company.”

Mr. Coombes has more than 25 years of experience in information technology and security. He has extensive experience in building and leading information security and risk management teams, in support of maturing the overall security posture of an organization.

“I’m thrilled to be part of Neustar and I look forward to building on the success its security and data services teams have already achieved. Neustar’s leading-edge DDoS protection and security threat modeling services set it apart from other business analytics and information service providers, and I’m focused on expanding these capabilities,” said Mr. Coombes.

Prior to Rackspace, Mr. Coombes held security leadership positions with USAA and IBM. He has worked in a variety of industries, including government, financial, high tech, and healthcare.
