A CISO's Perspective: Sue Lapierre

As the Vice President, Information Security Officer of Prologis, Sue Lapierre is responsible for developing and maintaining information security operations for the global industrial real estate company. She also oversees third-party vendor risk management. Lapierre’s great responsibility is matched by an equally great enthusiasm for the cybersecurity space. “This is a hot industry right now,” Lapierre explains. “Cybersecurity is really the place to be.”

Lapierre is passionate about promoting diversity in cybersecurity and IT, and devotes time to ISSA’s Women in Security, Colorado Chapter events. When it comes to diversity in the workplace, she states “it’s not just women, it can be minorities…anyone—if you have a greater amount of diversity in your perspectives on a particular topic, you’re going to get a better outcome to an answer.”
