Jason Loomis: Seeing risk from all sides- holistic vulnerability management

In this episode, we speak with Jason Loomis, CISO of Freshworks. Jason has been in tech for over 20 years, working with various companies in fashion, health, finance, and banking. He is passionate about leadership and team-building, which influences how he approaches vulnerability risk management.

  • Methods to calculate your metrics to determine accountability and ownership of risks
  • What it means to be mature or immature in corporate policies, processes, and reporting
  • The importance of CISOs physically talking to people and avoiding screen-only interacting
