“I am thrilled to be a part of Alta Associates and supporting the Executive Women’s Forum (EWF),” says Pam. “This opportunity enables me to continue to advocate for CIOs and maintain the strong relationships we've enjoyed over several years working collectively to evolve the profession. I look forward to leveraging my knowledge, expertise and deep relationships in the Cybersecurity community to make positive contributions as organizations seek to build their resilient, diverse, forward thinking teams.”

With their commitment to building resilient and diverse teams, Alta’s CEO Joyce Brocaglia founded the Executive Women’s Forum (EWF), the largest member organization dedicated to engaging, developing, and advancing women leaders in the Information Security, IT Risk Management and Privacy industries. Having spent the past 4 years developing the Women in Leadership program within the CIO Executive Council, Pam will continue to positively influence diversity and the advancement of women in the workplace through the EWF.

“The CIO and CISO are two of the most pivotal roles in every corporation. They and their teams ensure their company's security, enable competitiveness and lead transformation,” says Joyce Brocaglia, CEO of Alta Associates. “With the addition of Pam’s deep trusted network of CIOs and her passion for ensuring their success, we are poised to best serve these leaders while positively impacting the board level imperative of creating resilient and secure enterprises.”
