Leading a team of 150 security professionals, SAIC’s VP and CSO Michelle Joy Sutphin, ISP is passionate about making sure that her team has the tools and support they need so that they maintain the highest security posture possible. Her continuous drive has earned her a spot on WashingtonExec‘s Top 15 CSOs to Watch in 2022 list.
“She is always mindful of the post-COVID stress-filled environment in which her team operates,” reports WashingtonExec. “Her focus is on building her team with a strong mindset so it can better support the needs of the business and the national security mission.”
“I have often in my career witnessed times when security leaders focus solely on the problem or crisis at hand with no thought whatsoever to the professionals that are working those items,” Sutphin told WashingtonExec. “These professionals are on call 24/7 and shoulder a large burden for both the company and the nation. I am passionate about making sure that my team has the tools and support they need — physically, emotionally and mentally — so that they maintain the highest security posture possible.”
