"We have to get ahead of it," Woodruff says. "We have to be prepared and we have to tell them how to do it safely. They actually don't want to know about safe. They just want to know: How do I get this done? The safety is in the background."

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Woodruff discusses:

  • The new urgency of cloud migration;
  • How to deal effectively with SaaS needs;
  • What compliance looks like in a hybrid environment.

Woodruff joined Global Payments two years ago to build IT risk and compliance teams. She has focused on shifting compliance to the left, incorporating those principles into the fabric of all build activities, building a new cloud compliance team and making IT risk more data-driven and actionable. She has more than 25 years of management experience and a strong track record of building resilient and nimble teams. Her domain has been financial services with a focus on security, risk and compliance.
