Today, we are excited to announce and welcome David Damato as Gemini’s new Chief Security Officer (CSO). Dave joins us from Tanium, the world’s most valuable privately-held cybersecurity company.

At Tanium, Dave built and led a mature cybersecurity team that engineered unique security solutions to help protect government agencies, Fortune 500 companies, and banks around the world. Prior to Tanium, Dave was an early member of the leadership team at Mandiant, a premier cybersecurity firm that was later acquired by FireEye. Dave brings his 20+ years of security leadership to Gemini and will reinforce our company philosophy that trust is our product.

Gemini has been built and operated with a security-first mentality from day one. Security is the bedrock of our culture and one of Gemini’s four pillars along with Product, Licensing, and Compliance. It’s why, for example, we were the first exchange and custodian in the world to complete a SOC2 Type I examination and allow you to secure your account using hardware security keys via WebAuthn. We are excited for Dave to continue our Security Team’s tradition of building and pioneering world-class security solutions to secure the future of money.

Welcome to the team, Dave!

If you’re interested in joining Dave and the rest of the Gemini team, we’re hiring in our New York, NY; Portland, OR; and Chicago, IL offices! Check out our careers page for more information.

Onward and Upward,

Tyler
