Ola Sage, Co-Founder & CEO
Ola Sage is the co-founder and CEO of CyberRx, a fast growing cybersecurity firm that helps small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) use the Cybersecurity Framework, which was developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the private sector, in an easy and accessible way to assess and improve their cybersecurity readiness. CyberRx is both vendor-agnostic and affordable, as Ola is committed to making cybersecurity manageable and accessible to all organizations, particularly the most vulnerable—small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
A champion and advocate for cybersecurity readiness, Ola frequently speaks to SMBs and CEOs about cybersecurity, and has testified twice before Congress about the impact of cybersecurity on small and medium-sized businesses.
Ola is also the founder and CEO of e-Management, a 17-year old award-winning provider of technical IT solutions and cybersecurity services to government and industry clients.
Ola currently chairs the national IT Sector Coordinating Council (IT SCC), which serves as the principal entity coordinating with the government on a wide range of critical infrastructure protection and cybersecurity activities and issues. The IT SCC comprises companies, associations and other key IT-sector participants that work collaboratively with the Department of Homeland Security to address strategies for mitigating cybersecurity threats and risks to our nation's critical infrastructure.
Ola holds the Federal Chief Information Officers (CIO) certificate, is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP), and earned the Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC) certification through ISACA, an international association of IT professionals involved in information security, assurance, risk management and governance. She holds an M.S. in Technology Management from George Mason University in Fairfax, VA.
