Inypay, a soon-to-be-launched Singaporean neobank, announced that it has appointed Kawin Boonyapredee as its Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).
In his new role as CISO, Kawin will be responsible for overseeing the company’s information security programme and ensuring that all systems and data are protected against the ever-evolving threat landscape.
Kawin has over 25 years of experience in the cybersecurity industry with a focus on information security, risk management, and compliance across North America and Asia.
Prior to joining Inypay, Kawin served as the Regional Information Security Lead at Capital Group. He also served as the Global Head of Cyber Defense at Bukalapak, Global Head of IT Governance, Risk and Compliance at Gojek, and Chief Cyber Technologist at Booz Allen Hamilton, among others.
He is a certified information systems security professional (CISSP), certified in risk and information systems control (CRISC), cloud security knowledge (CCSK), and certified GIAC network penetration tester and ethical hacker (GPEN).
The neobank said in a statement that Kawin’s ability to manage complex security programmes and develop effective strategies to safeguard organisations against cyber threats makes him an excellent fit for the role.
Arivuvel Ramu, CEO of Inypay said,
“We recognise the importance of having a strong and experienced leader like Kawin to help us protect our customers’ data and build their trust.”
“I am thrilled to join Inypay and contribute to its mission of serving the underserved in Asia. Information security is critical in today’s digital age, and I look forward to working with the team to ensure that our systems and data are secure and resilient.”
Inypay is building a platform tailored to the financial needs of the blue-collar workers, foreign domestic workers, and micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in Southeast Asia.
With Kawin’s appointment as the new CISO, the company added that it is well-positioned to continue its growth trajectory while maintaining its commitment to security and customer trust.
Inypay is currently in the process of applying for a payment license from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and raising its seed funding round ahead of its launch in mid-2023.
