Director of Information Security
Panera Bread

Mike has 15 years of experience in information security working in financial and consumer services industries. He has developed and built security organizations and programs that align with corporate strategies as a business enabler. At Panera, Mike and his team have created a layered defense strategy from an internal and external perspective. Secure zone and segmentation deployment was a critical program deployed by Mike and his team to meet internal security strategies by ensuring limited and restricted access to critical systems and assurance of proper visibility. Leveraging Akamai (Edge and WAF products) was a key element for Panera's external defense strategy to enable visibility and proactive response to current risks in the wild. This allows for quick reaction, priceless metrics, and significant insight into activities that are occurring against digital properties.
