Tala welcomes Jim Routh to its Board of Advisors

Tala is incredibly excited to announce a new addition to our team. Jim Routh has joined the company as an Advisor to Tala. 


Jim is one of the true icons of the cybersecurity industry and is a cybersecurity thought leader.  Tala is lucky to leverage his expertise in driving the future of security and privacy on the web. He has a long history, spanning over 30 years, in technology and cybersecurity where he has been a leader and management consultant with companies like: MassMutual, CVS Health, AETNA, JPMorgan Chase, KPMG, DTCC, American Express and others. The awards he has received include the Santa Fe Group/Shared Assessments Lifetime Achievement Award, CSO Hall of Fame, ISE Luminary Award, SINET Impact Award, Evanta BreakAway Leadership Award, Information Security Executive of the Year Award (twice), BITS Leadership Award. 


When I asked Jim why he chose to be an advisor for Tala, Jim said, “I believe in discovering ways to use behavioral data to improve cyber resilience along with end-user privacy for enterprises.” 


Indeed, the browser has become an important battleground both for end-user security and privacy. Client-side vulnerabilities and groups like Magecart have become the single largest threat on the web. The software supply-chain security problem is the most acute on the web – an average website uses 35+ third-party sources of third-party JavaScript code. As the world moves towards a more technology-driven approach to privacy, enterprises have to monitor what data they are collecting from their users, but also who they are sharing with. The browser is one of the most significant ways in which user data is collected, and also the weakest point from a privacy violation monitoring and blocking perspective. 


Jim also understands the transformative power of Tala’s platform. He said Tala Security offers solid controls for protecting the browser and the end user regardless of the device chosen including determining what digital consumer information is used by different vendors. 


With Jim’s guidance, and with his backing, Tala is well positioned as the platform of choice to solve the most complex cybersecurity and privacy threats on the web.
