Mustapha Kebbeh
Chief Information Security Officer CISO

As Chief Information Security Officer for a global enterprise, I head vision and strategy for all IT cybersecurity, enterprise risk management, and IT enterprise architecture impacting 75,000 employees around the world. My goal is to protect information data and technologies from actual and potential threats, both internal and external to the organization.

My strength involves continually fortifying corporate security through standardization, training, and innovative technology to empower employees on all levels. Through my efforts, I have helped Brinks, IBM, Vodaphone, and CompuCom safeguard their IT infrastructure and mitigate risk from malicious hackers, human error, and general security gaps.

Key factors include bringing in the right talent, building a culture of security-minded personnel, and getting everyone involved. It’s also critical to think about the business from more than a security viewpoint by selecting tools and technology to drive revenue and business growth as well as system protection.
