Kris Rides has been working in technical staffing for over 20 years and is CEO of Tiro Security, a cybersecurity staffing and professional services firm he founded over seven years ago. He recently founded a staff retention software and services company, kmute. Rides is the current President of the Los Angeles Cloud Security Alliance Chapter and is a founding Board Member of the original SoCal Chapter that is now San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles. He also serves as an Advisory Board Member for the National Cybersecurity Training and Education Center. Outside of the office, you would usually catch him planning his next vacation—anything from chasing powder on the slopes to finding the next best place to SCUBA dive with sharks—but as a new dad he is now mostly not sleeping and changing diapers.
