"Having a seamless user experience is very important to me as a CISO … so that people don't come after me with pitchforks," he says.

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

  • His mission as an advisory CISO;
  • How identity and access management lends itself best to cloud security and resilience;
  • What's important about ZTNA 2.0 - and the lessons learned from ZTNA 1.0.

Vasquez is a cybersecurity, risk and privacy leader who serves as advisory CISO, supporting Palo Alto Networks' largest strategic clients. He's been in the trenches and the boardroom relating to the IT and business opportunities leaders face daily. Vasquez has served as CISO at Hudson and was also the first CISO at New York University. He has also been an adviser at organizations, including Deloitte, as a business partner on organizational transformations.
