This year’s featured speaker will be Ariel Weintraub, CISO and Head of Enterprise Cyber Security at MassMutual.  The topic of her presentation will be “The Evolution of Cyber Supply Chain Attacks and the Role of Data Science.”

Ms. Weintraub joined MassMutual in the fall of 2019 as the Head of Security Operations & Engineering, responsible for the Global Security Operations Center, Security Engineering, Security Intelligence and Identity & Access Management (IAM). Prior to joining MassMutual, She served as Senior Director of Data & Access Security within Cybersecurity Operations at TIAA where she led a three-year business transformation program to position IAM as a digital business enabler. Before working at TIAA, she was Global Head of Vulnerability Management at BNY Mellon and was part of the Threat & Vulnerability Management practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).

Ms. Weintraub holds a Master of Science in Cybersecurity from New York University (NYU) / Tandon School of Engineering, and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Southern California (USC) Marshall School of Business. Ms. Weintraub has a passion for empowering women, especially the next generation of female cybersecurity leaders, and for tackling the cybersecurity workforce shortage. To help address these important issues, she serves on the Board for the Executive Women’s Forum (EWF) and the ISACA One in Tech Foundation, which is focused on building a digital world that is safe, secure and accessible for all. Most recently, she also joined the FS-ISAC Board of Directors on which she is furthering her other passion for maximizing the value of threat intelligence sharing across the financial services sector.

Since assuming her position of CISO at MassMutual, Ms. Weintraub has presented at numerous national conferences, and is a fierce advocate for diversity in the cyber space.
