Chief Information and Security Officer
With twenty+ years in information security, Allan has served as CISO five times in five industries, with a strong history in technology, manufacturing, telecommunications, litigation, education, cybersecurity and more – at companies ranging from 5 to 50,000 employees.
Allan parlayed an IT career into a product security career and then ultimately fused the two disciplines. This unique background means that Allan approaches the CISO role with a highly business-aligned focus and an understanding of an organization’s greater goals, drivers, methods, and practices. Allan seeks at all turns to positively impact the top and bottom lines.
Allan holds a Master of Information Systems & Security and a Bachelor of Liberal Arts with a focus on Leadership.
Allan gives back to the security community via The Cyber Ranch Podcast, by authoring articles, speaking at conferences and teaching.
