About Rinki Sethi
Rinki Sethi is Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at Twitter responsible for leading efforts to protect its information and technology assets and advising the company’s continued product innovations in security. Previously Rinki was VP & CISO at Rubrik, Inc., and she has also held positions in online security infrastructure at Fortune 500 companies including IBM, Palo Alto Networks, Intuit, eBay, Walmart.com, and PG&E. Sethi also serves as an advisor to several startups, such as LevelOps and Authomize, and cybersecurity organizations, including Women in Cybersecurity.
Rinki has over 20 years of experience as a strategic leader and has received several awards, including the “One to Watch” from CSO Magazine and the Executive Women’s Forum, and the Senior Information Security Practitioner Award from ISC2. She also led an initiative to develop the first set of national cybersecurity badges and curriculum for the Girl Scouts of USA and contributed to the ISACA book, “Creating a Culture of Security.” Rinki holds several recognized security certifications and has a B.S. in Computer Science Engineering from UC Davis and an M.S. in Information Security from Capella University.
Sethi’s career began with PG&E as an information security specialist and became really passionate about cybersecurity when Walmart.com hired her two years later as a security engineer. She then spent the following 3 years at eBay as the Chief of Staff & Sr. Manager of Global Fraud, Risk & Security. Intuit hired her as an information security officer for two of their business units as they were going into the public cloud and moving data from TurboTax into AWS. Next, an opportunity to become VP of Information Security at Palo Alto Networks came up and she couldn’t resist the opportunity. After three years with Palo Alto Networks, Rinki left to take the role of VP of Information Security at IBM. After about four months with IBM, however, someone told Sethi about an opportunity at Rubrik and said she’d be a great fit as CISO. A year and a half later, it was mentioned to her that Twitter had been searching for a CISO and so she joined in September 2020 and is her current position as of now!
