Mike Johnson (The Shadowserver Foundation)

Mike has over twenty years of experience in the security industry.  He currently serves as CISO at Fastly where his team secures the network and platform behind the best of the web.  Before Fastly, he spent a year and a half as Lyft’s first CISO where he had overall responsibility for their cybersecurity efforts.  Prior to Lyft, he spent nine years at Salesforce in various roles, ultimately building and growing their world class Detection and Response organization.  He started his career prototyping intrusion detection systems for battlefield networks.

Mike is a strong believer in focusing on security fundamentals and avoiding shiny object syndrome with a relentless drive towards maturing a program over time. More importantly, he believes that we’re not in this fight alone. We have to share, help each other out, and build meaningful relationships. He focuses on one group of these relationships as a co-host of the weekly CISO Security Vendor Relationship Podcast.

In his spare time, you’ll either find him driving his Jeep well off the beaten path or with a wrench underneath his Jeep preparing for his next off road adventure.
