Twitter announced it has hired Rinki Sethi to fill its Chief Information Security Officer role, which had been vacant since December 2019. She will report directly to Twitter’s Platform Lead, Nick Turnow, who announced the move in a tweet.
As the company’s cybersecurity chief, Sethi will oversee Twitter's information security practices and policies. She is also responsible for leading the company's growing InfoSec team.
In his tweet, Tornow stated that Sethi will be a leading force in protecting the company’s customers and earning trust. Her main concern will likely be protecting Twitter’s platform and its users from being exploited by criminals, nation-states, and other bad actors. This task is more crucial now than ever considering a recent security breach that impacted several high-profile and verified users, as well as increased scrutiny on the platform’s security by regulators.
Sethi is a veteran and leader in the information security space and most recently served as the Chief Information Security Officer at cloud data management company Rubrik. She has also held senior cybersecurity roles at tech giants like IBM, Palo Alto Networks, and Intuit.
Her influence felt beyond just the tech industry as she advises SecureWorld, one of North America's leading cybersecurity conferences, and helped develop the first set of national cybersecurity badges and curriculum for the Girl Scouts of USA.
