Cloud business intelligence startup Domo has hired Niall Browne, former chief trust officer at Workday, as the company's first CISO.
In his new role, Browne will be overseeing the security program at Domo, ensuring client’s data is securely managed and governed across the enterprise.
"Security is a key business enabler and we’ve always had a strong security posture in our platform and protocols," Domo founder and CEO Josh James* told CSO via email. "As we continue to expand our presence among the Fortune 1000, the addition of a CISO will ensure our security and trust programs keep us at the forefront of security in the cloud. The addition of a CISO allows us to engage in more meaningful conversations with CIOs and IT leaders on leveraging Domo as the central platform from which data access can be securely managed and governed across the enterprise."
“Companies want to work with providers that they can trust,” said Browne in a press release announcing his appointment. “Domo has done an amazing job embedding security throughout its platform and protocols. My job will be to enhance Domo’s security and trust programs to help keep Domo at the forefront of this wave of managing information in the cloud and allowing customers to more fully leverage their data to accelerate business.”
