Full episode and show notes



Clea Ostendorf
Field CISO at Code42

There are two types of people, those who follow the instructions while cooking, and those who read the ingredients and then go off feeling. Clea is the latter, which has served her well as she’s navigated various roles in technology and security from sales, to program management and most recently as Field CISO for Code42. Security is one part tech, but also needs to have compassion and partnership in order for any technology to be successful. Just as in cooking, Clea begins with the end in mind and brings a people and business focus to each engagement she is part of.
