Chief Information Security Officer

Michael Meis

As a security leader, I am dedicated to creating and developing a business focused security organization. Information security is as important as ever, but solutions that begin with a large budget should instead be rooted in a blend of people and processes. My niche lies in creating a dynamic security environment that focuses on business operations support through personnel development, process efficiencies, and selective use of automation. There are simply not enough qualified cyber professionals to satisfy the surging industry demand. I have chosen to fill to this gap by automating repetitive or redundant processes while inspiring and coaching young professionals toward the skills of the future. I take great pride in watching my team learn and grow, gaining the confidence that comes with mastering a craft.
