Profiles in Leadership: Rebecca Wynn

Global CISO, Privacy Officer Seeks to Always Push the Envelope
Rebecca Wynn, global CISO and privacy officer

As a global CISO and privacy officer, Rebecca Wynn has earned her stripes. And she's upfront with her expectations: She will take your security organization to the next level. But she also won't hesitate to walk away if she sees that cybersecurity commitment is nothing but talk.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group as part of its RSA Conference 2021 coverage, and as part of the CyberEdBoard's ongoing Profiles in Leadership series, Wynn discusses:

  • Her career path and priorities;
  • Why she hates "checkbox anything";
  • What will make her walk away from an opportunity.

As a global CISO and chief privacy officer, Wynn is a “big picture” thinker who has over 20 years of experience in information security, assurance and technology. The recipient of numerous awards, including 2017 Cybersecurity Professional of the Year, she has been described as a "game-changer who is 10 steps ahead in developing and enforcing cybersecurity and privacy best practices and policies."
