Greg Notch is the Chief Information Security Officer at Expel (CISO). As CISO (pronunciations may vary), he is responsible for ensuring the security of Expel’s systems, as well as keeping customers educated on the threat landscape and latest techniques for mitigating risk in their environments.
He’s been doing the security and tech thing for over 20 years – helping companies large and small through all three dot-com booms to build high-performing engineering teams, and improve their technology, process, and security. Before Expel, Greg spent 15 years as the CISO and Senior Vice President of Technology at the National Hockey League (NHL), where he led their information security program. He also led the league’s technology strategy, digital transformation, and cloud initiatives. Prior to the NHL, Greg worked on infrastructure, security, and software systems for Apple, Yahoo Search, eMusic, and several other NYC based tech startups.
An engineer by trade, Ev Kontsevoy founded Teleport in 2015 in order to help engineers quickly, effectively and securely access all computing infrastructure. Teleport eliminates passwords, static credentials and VPNs to improve security and meet compliance requirements without sacrificing developer experience and productivity.
Ev graduated from Siberian Federal University before holding a series of engineering roles at companies including National Instruments and GE. Prior to launching Teleport, Ev was co-founder and CEO of Mailgun, an API-based email delivery service which was later acquired by Rackspace. Under Ev’s leadership, Teleport has grown from 25 employees in 2020 to over 200 employees just two years later. His work is driven by a mission to maintain simplicity, clarity and security in increasingly complex computing environments.
