Expanding Stonebridge Consulting’s practice area for enterprise digital oilfield architecture and cybersecurity, we are excited to announce that Syed Baber has joined our team as Director, Technology Architecture & Cybersecurity Advisory. Syed brings more than 2 decades of technology and consulting experience to Stonebridge, much of which has been spent in the energy industry where he most recently led applications, security and IT operations for Vine Energy, a multibillion Blackstone E&P portfolio company.
“As energy leaders think about building the digital resilience needed to thrive in an increasingly data-driven industry, there is a huge opportunity to create robust master data management processes and, equally important, secure digital ecosystems from cyberattacks that have seen triple digit growth over the last few years,” says Syed. “From protecting assets in the field to securing business critical applications in the cloud, it is imperative for every organization, no matter their size, to implement and sustain an end-to-end cybersecurity strategy to ensure business continuity and avoid catastrophic loss of data. I am extremely proud to be a part of Stonebridge’s enterprise architecture and cybersecurity practice as we bring best-in-class processes, people, and tech to secure the digital oilfield and the energy back office for our clients.”
Syed is the leadership chair for PPDM’s Dallas/Fort Worth chapter and is active in the North Texas technology space participating on entrepreneurial growth and cybersecurity committees for Tech Titans.
A native of New Orleans, he is based out of Plano. Syed loves firing up the grill and cooking for as many as 50 friends and family. When he’s not grilling, he enjoys spending time outdoors hunting, fishing, and hiking.
