“Security only works when it’s in tune with the company it supports. Understanding what we are defending (and why) is more important than preventing, detecting or responding to threats. Understanding is dependent on high-quality relationships with stakeholders.” Robb has built successful risk based security programs in the software and financial services industries. As Chief Information Security Officer at Ping Identity he is responsible for ensuring the integrity of all Ping products, the confidentiality of sensitive data, and the availability of critical services. Previous to his role at Ping Robb served as vice president and CISO for Pulte Financial Services. Before Pulte, Robb served as Information Security Officer and Director of Risk Management for Harland Financial Solutions. Robb holds a Bachelor’s of Arts from George Fox University and an MBA from Colorado State University.
