Ryan Murray is the interim chief information security officer for the state of Arizona.
State Leadership of the Year
Ryan Murray is the interim CISO for the state of Arizona. In this role, he is responsible for enterprise security, a critical role as the state prepared to host the 2023 Super Bowl. In the last year, he started an ambitious cyber readiness program, which offers free security awareness training and a host of security tools to cities, counties, tribal entities, and K-12 schools – to improve the cyber posture across Arizona and provide improved visibility and better protections for the legions of remote workers. As a result of this program, Ryan and his team were able to address more than 700K vulnerabilities at the local level and save these entities millions of dollars.
