Technical Depth + Business Acumen = Effective Leadership

Sean is a Technical CISO who assists organizations in achieving real risk reduction by ensuring that they have the people, technologies, and processes in place to enable business operations while managing risks effectively. He’s skilled in Security Vision & Leadership, Governance, Cloud Security, Product Security, Information Risk Management, and Team Building.

Sean started as an in-the-trenches offensive security operator. He’s conducted hyper-realistic red team attacks against dozens of different organizations, so he knows how the adversary thinks and operates. He brings this experience and mindset to every organization he helps secure. A technologist and tinkerer at heart, Sean is equally comfortable presenting in the board room and diving deep to identify control gaps in cloud security architecture.

Sean brings a blend of start-up and corporate experience to the table. He was the first employee at FusionX (acquired by Accenture), and more recently led product, security, and R&D for VisibleRisk (acquired by BitSight). He managed Accenture Security’s alliance with Microsoft, and was Head of Cyber Defense at Amazon Prime Video.

In every role, team building and mentorship are a high priority. His personal mission is to collaboratively challenge the status quo, so the team can maximize it’s achievements.

Sean holds multiple security certifications and an MS in information security and assurance. He is a frequent presenter and panelist at security, technology, and business conferences, including Black Hat and DEF CON.
