Ray Rothrock
CEO & Chairman
RedSeal

Why Nominated: Having spent decades leading and advising both technology and information security companies, Rothrock knows that cybersecurity for any organization goes well beyond just deploying and managing strong technologies. It’s also about strategically thinking about security needs holistically top down. And, for him, this means that since every entity is a “cyber organization,” the related risks they face are a CEO and board-level responsibility. With this foundation in mind, Rothrock works well beyond the confines of his office, reaching out practitioners, C-level executives, government leaders and even average citizens through a bevy of activities and ventures.    

Profile: After spending some 25 years at Venrock, the Rockefeller family’s VC division, investing in dozens of leading tech companies, Rothrock founded RedSeal and became its CEO and chairman in 2014 because of his strong belief in its cyber resiliency and risk modeling platform. Under his guidance, the company now serves more than 220 government agencies and Global 200 organizations.
