Arctic Wolf was one of many security companies to relocate during the COVID-19 pandemic, moving from Silicon Valley to the Minneapolis area in 2020. The move was accompanied by a push to find workers in nontraditional geographies that continues today, says Chief Product Officer Dan Schiappa.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Schiappa discusses:

  • The biggest untapped markets for security talent;
  • The keys to managing a geographically dispersed staff;
  • The impact of the economic downturn on Arctic Wolf.

Schiappa is responsible for driving innovation across product, engineering, alliances and business development teams to help meet demand for security operations through Arctic Wolf's growing customer base - especially in the enterprise sector. Before joining Arctic Wolf, Schiappa was CPO with Sophos and senior vice president and general manager of the Identity and Data Protection Group at RSA, the Security Division of EMC.
