Jadee Hanson Appointed Code42 CISO, Vice President of Information Systems

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Code42, the leader in data loss protection, visibility and recovery solutions, announced that it appointed Jadee Hanson to the post of chief information security officer (CISO) and vice president of information systems (IS). Hanson joined Code42 in 2016 as senior director of information security. She was promoted to CISO in April 2018 and most recently added responsibility for IS.

In her expanded role, Hanson manages information technology, business enablement and internal application development. In addition, she leads global risk and compliance, security operations, incident response, and insider threat monitoring and investigations.

“Since joining Code42, Jadee has played a pivotal role in advancing our data security strategy and program. We are excited to have Jadee expand her leadership position,” said Joe Payne, Code42’s president and CEO. “Jadee is not only committed to putting the protection of our customers’ data first, but is also an advocate for women in technology and drawing on diverse viewpoints to solve business challenges.”

Hanson brings more than 15 years of experience in data security strategy and technology implementation to Code42. Prior to Code42, Hanson worked at Target Corporation, where she served as senior director of information security and in a variety of other capacities during her nearly eight-year tenure. Hanson also held a management position at Deloitte, specializing in data security governance, risk and compliance.

“I can’t think of a more exciting time to take on this position. Companies and employees today expect real-time, anywhere-access to data. This opens up big challenges and opportunities for security and IS teams,” said Hanson. “I’m looking forward to changing the traditional way security and IS are viewed — and broadening our role to trusted advisor for our customers, industry partners and employees.”

With her insights and security expertise, Code42 continues to advance its data security products. Most recently, the company announced its Code42® Next-Gen Data Loss Protection solution, which is designed for today’s IP-rich and employee-centric organizations.
