Rohan Amin, Global CISO of JPMorgan Chase & Co and Brian DiPietro, Managing Director, CISO of MUFG Union Bank, N.A. were selected as the Information Security Executive® of the Year Award winners for the ISE® Northeast Region.
Rohan leads the team that protects the firm and its customers, clients, employees and partners from cybersecurity threats. He is a member of the firm’s Global Technology Operating Committee (GTOC). Within the industry, he is on the managing Board of Directors for the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) and he is the Chair of the Board for the Financial Systemic Analysis and Resilience Center (FSARC). Within the defense industry, he was instrumental in establishing the Defense Security Information Exchange (DSIE), a cyber threat fusion and sharing forum between major defense industrial base partners. Rohan also co-authored the seminal paper on Intelligence Driven Defense and the Cyber Kill Chain – which introduced the world to new analytical tradecraft for combating Advanced Persistent Threats.
Brian is responsible for establishing and maintaining the enterprise vision, strategy and program to better protect the company’s information assets and technologies. He is also responsible for directing staff in identifying, developing, implementing, and maintaining processes across the Americas to reduce information and cybersecurity risks.

Rohan was also honored during the event as the 2017 ISE® Northeast People's Choice Award winner. This award represents the nominee who best exemplifies information security leadership as voted on by his peers in information security.
Comcast's "Cyber Value at Risk" project was selected as the ISE® Northeast Project of the Year. Chuck Hudson, Executive Director, for Comcast accepted on behalf of the project.
Comcast’s Cyber Value at Risk program, executed using Bay Dynamics’ Risk Fabric platform, has enabled the company to continuously protect its most valued assets by quantifying the impact of cyber risk based on actual threat and vulnerability data in the environment, and then prioritizing mitigation actions based on those activities that directly address the established risks. The platform automatically delivers relevant threat and vulnerability information to an array of stakeholders responsible for the involved mitigation and continuously measures how much risk is being reduced due to the actions taken.
"Our judges were very impressed by this year’s selection of high-caliber executive and project nominees," said T.E.N. CEO and President Marci McCarthy. "Each of these executives and project teams exhibits the drive, passion, and dedication to Information Security for which the ISE® Awards stand and we are honored to have each and every one of them join the ranks of our distinguished ISE® Alumni."
