Chris Nelms, former EVP of Trust and Security for PrecisionLender brings industry leading experience to Stratifyd. Nelms will serve as Stratifyd's CISO to continue to build out all aspects of the company’s commitment to customer data protection, privacy, and information security. It’s not just about saying you’re secure, it’s about building trust and proving it through transparency.
Nelms has extensive experience managing Information Security, Risk Management and partnering with clients to build trust through due diligence and continuous monitoring. In his previous role, Nelms was responsible for the governance of information security, data integrity, DevOps, IT and various compliance activities including SOC 2 & ISO audits as well as meeting international regulatory requirements related to privacy and security.
When asked, why he chose Stratifyd, Nelms said, “Derek's passion to use technology to level the playing field by democratizing AI was huge for me. I wanted to be a part of a company that is evolutionary and forward-thinking like Stratifyd. Here, education is no longer the differentiator. Stratifyd removes the PhD cost of entry and enables companies of all sizes to make the most of their data.”
As part of Nelms’ joining Stratifyd, he and Derek plan to sponsor a scholarship for “women in security” to continue to help the local Charlotte community.
