Drata appoints Chief Information Security Officer

RELATED TOPICS​

Drata, a next-gen security and compliance automation company, has appointed Ross Hosman as Chief Information Security Officer. 

In his new role, Hosman will be responsible for leading and growing Drata’s security program, as well as providing industry expertise and guidance to the company’s current and prospective customers.  
 
Prior to joining Drata, Hosman was the Head of Information Security at business intelligence company Sigma Computing, as well as Recurly, a subscription platform. He also spent time as JPMorgan Chase’s Head of Cloud Security, building out an automation-focused security strategy for one of the largest financial institutions in the world. Before then, he held cloud security architect positions at VMware, Cisco, and Expedia, providing him with comprehensive knowledge of the various cloud and hosting technologies. 
 
“Drata’s automated, continuous approach to compliance is a game changer for the industry,” says Hosman. “My career has allowed me to see the numerous, largely manual ways that companies typically handle compliance. I’ve always leaned into the value that automation can provide, and now organisations of all sizes, across industries, can benefit from it via Drata’s solution.” 
 
Hosman is also a member of Silicon Valley CISO Investments (SVCI), an angel syndicate made up of some of the world’s leading CISOs. SVCI was a key participant in Drata’s latest Series A round.
 
“Ross Hosman’s extensive background and leadership in cloud security, compliance, and management make him ideally suited to join our team,” says Adam Markowitz, Drata CEO & Co-Founder. “Drata’s mission is to help companies earn and keep the trust of their users, customers, partners and prospects. Ross’s appointment is a strong validation of our commitment to that mission, and we couldn’t be more excited to have him on board.”
