Saikat Maiti, EVP and Chief Security and Trust Officer of Personal Capital, was honored during the event with the 2016 ISE® West People’s Choice Award. This award represents the nominee who best exemplifies information security leadership as voted on by his peers in information security.
PayPal’s “Enterprise Vulnerability Management Program” project was selected as the ISE® West Project of the Year. Jenna Gallagher, Senior Manager, Vulnerability Manager, and Operational Assurance, accepted on behalf of the project. Supporting the high-profile $50B eBay and PayPal split necessitated creating a fully self-contained infrastructure. To ensure worldwide data integrity and a secure environment, a decision was made to implement a comprehensive vulnerability management process to minimize risk for the organization both during and after the transition. Blending technology and business considerations, the project culminated in the creation of a set of tiered remediation processes, full governance protocols, compensating controls, and SLAs. Deployed across a 130,000+ IP address infrastructure that was still being built, the project was completed on time despite executives slicing the time allocated to the phase by 70%.
“Our judges faced a difficult challenge in evaluating such a high caliber group of executive and project nominees,” said T.E.N. CEO and President Marci McCarthy. “Each of them exhibits the innovation and ingenuity for which the ISE® Awards stand and we are honored to have each and every one of join the ranks of our distinguished ISE® Alumni.”
