May 10, AUSTIN, Texas -- Stoplight, a leading API design company, announced today that Nicholas Muy has joined as the new Chief Information Security Officer.
Reporting to Stoplight Chief Technology Officer, Jason Harmon, this position will play a key role in building out strategy and programming for Stoplight’s security in a cloud-native, product-led-growth software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform. Muy will also be responsible for partnering with Stoplight’s product team on the right security capabilities and features for the product roadmap.
“As API design becomes more central to organizations of all sizes and industries around the world, we are squarely focused on ensuring we have security at the center of our strategy for growth. We are thrilled to have Nick joining as our first CISO with his deep background and expertise to bring to the job,” shares Stoplight CTO, Jason Harmon.
Based in Seattle, Washington, Muy comes to Stoplight with over fifteen years of experience in technology and security. He was previously at Expedia Group, leading business and commercial strategy for Expedia Group’s platform division, previously spending five years transforming security in the organization. During that period, Muy grew Expedia’s investment in security by many millions and expanded the team to more than 150 people–taking security strategy from purely operational, to an increasingly technical security team. Additionally, Muy began his career in security in the Department of Homeland Security. Muy has deep technical expertise in everything from security engineering, SaaS, massive web application ecosystems, and hardware architecture.
"I’m ready to dig in and build upon our SaaS-native security program and strategy. I look forward to being an enabler for our sales and marketing teams, listening to our growing customer base, and driving the right security capabilities in our product," shares Muy.
