U.S. Navy veteran and former security leader from Nike joins Auth0 C-Suite
Auth0, the identity platform for application teams, today announced that Jameeka Green Aaron has joined the company as Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). Aaron brings more than 20 years of industry experience and will be responsible for the holistic security and compliance of Auth0’s platform, products, and corporate environment.
Aaron is a recognized industry thought leader and has dedicated two decades to managing and improving information security systems at each of her previous positions, including Nike, Hurley, Lockheed Martin, and the U.S. Navy. She is also committed to advancing women and people of color in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields and has participated in the U.S. State Department’s TechWomen program and the National Urban League of Young Professionals. She currently sits on the board of the California Women Veterans Leadership Council, is an advisor for U.C. Riverside Design Thinking Program, and is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
“Jameeka is an incredible addition to our executive team, not only for her deep experience and leadership, but for her leadership outside of the security industry as well,” said Eugenio Pace, CEO and co-founder of Auth0. “As a company with a mission of inclusivity and access to technology, we were taken by Jameeka’s stewardship to her causes and look forward to driving lasting positive change together. Her unmatched security expertise and dedication is an inspiration and invaluable asset to Auth0.”
The web of complexity involved in managing a competitive digital business broadens each day. Auth0 continues to innovate and evolve its identity management platform to make security, privacy, and compliance easier for global enterprises. The company is solving complex and large-scale identity use cases for global companies, and Aaron will help Auth0 and its customers ensure that they meet the highest levels of security and compliance.
“In addition to the amazing roster of customers that puts their trust in Auth0 and fuels its growth, I was very much struck by the humanity of everyone I met with—a level of empathy that has been a rarity throughout my career,” said Aaron. “Being a CISO is a very unique job and is one that largely centers around accountability. I am approaching this position at Auth0 with a mission to ensure the optimal security of our platform, as well as be a strong collaborator and partner to both customers and employees alike.”
