CISO, Campbell Soup Company
Renee Guttmann is Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) for the Campbell Soup Company. As CISO, Renee is responsible for enhancing and maintaining the information security program to ensure that information assets and associated technology, applications, systems, infrastructure, and processes are adequately protected in the digital ecosystem in which we operate.
Renee is an accomplished information security executive with over 25 years of experience managing technology risk for global corporations across multiple industries.
Renee started her career in Information Security at GlaxoSmithKline before the Internet was accessible for commercial use. She implemented firewalls and encryption products to support the protection of the GSK’s crown jewels, including patient information.
She was recruited to Capital One to build the first global information security program and enable customers to retrieve their credit card statements online. She then spent 11 years at Time Warner, where she built the information security program for Time Inc. as well as leading the Incident Response Program for AOL Time Warner from 2000 – 2007.
In 2008, Renee became the first Chief Privacy Officer for Time Warner and established the privacy program for the Company’s Shared Service Systems.
Consumer products came next as Renee built the first global Information Security program for Coca-Cola from 2011 – 2014.
Prior to joining Campbell, Renee established the Information Security Program at Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, where she built that industry’s very first Maritime Cybersecurity program to protect ships and passengers at sea.
As an information security practitioner, Renee was one of the first women in the field. She is considered a thought leader as well as an early adopter of the technologies and best practices that are considered standard in the industry today. She has mentored dozens of employees who are now leading global information security programs at other companies across many industries.
Renee brings experience and a passion for the industry to Campbell’s.
In her spare time, she serves on the Board for Hillside Community Services for Children in Atlanta and is an advisor to the Rutgers University Cybersecurity Program.
