IT Visionaries

Aug 23, 2019

In today’s world, there is no telling exactly who is in charge of a company’s IT Department. Is it the CTO? Sometimes. But what about the CIO? Yep, they often are the IT czars, too. But at Checkr, it’s neither. Instead, the IT Department falls under the jurisdiction of Cory Louie, Checkr’s Chief Trust and Security Officer. 

Cory’s path to technology was definitely not straight, but no matter what his job was there was always a common theme. From Law enforcement to the Secret Service to working at Google, Dropbox and even in the White House, everywhere Cory went, he pursued a higher purpose. 

On this episode of IT Visionaries, Cory takes us through his life and career and gets deep in the weeds about how technology is changing how security is done across industries.

Key Takeaways:

  • The importance of choosing your title and understanding your role.
  • The challenges of being the CISO at the White House.
  • What does the future of security look like?
  • Why Cory always looks for a higher purpose in his work.
