As CIO and chief information security officer at Venafi, Tammy Moskites helps CIOs and CISOs fortify their strategies to defend against increasingly complex and damaging cyberattacks on the trust established by cryptographic keys and digital certificates. Tammy draws on her professional experience, leadership capabilities and domain expertise as a CISO at Global 250 companies to help fellow CISOs defend their organizations. There is often a gap that cybersecurity teams miss in securing keys and certificates that leaves the door open for cybercriminals. Tammy’s leadership and experience will help other CISOs close those doors.

Prior to joining Venafi, Tammy served as CISO at Time Warner Cable, where one of her many responsibilities was to re-engineer and centralize the information security and IT compliance organizations to support global operations. Tammy also held the CISO position at The Home Depot, where she provided strategic executive and collaborative business direction for several teams, including identity and access management, IT compliance and regulatory, e-discovery and forensics, encryption and more. Tammy's other relevant security experience includes stints at Huntington National Bank, Complete Information Technologies LLC, BankOne, Nationwide and Aetna.

Tammy is also a leader in several important IT security organizations, including ISSA, ISACA, InfraGard and the Information Risk Security Board. In 2013, she was recognized as one of the Top Women in Technology by CableFax magazine and as one of the 25 finalists for the Evanta Top 10 Breakaway Leader Awards. In 2010, she was the winner of the Information Security Executive North America People’s Choice award.
