In an era where data fuels innovation and shapes decisions, preserving the integrity and safety of this invaluable resource is my primary mission as CISO at Alteryx. The responsibility to safeguard data is paramount, and we take this obligation seriously. As we celebrate Cybersecurity Month, I would like to offer an exclusive peek into our Information Security Program, revealing the strong measures we have put in place to secure our systems and protect information.
Understanding Our Security Approach
A Defense-in-Depth Strategy: Security at Alteryx isn’t merely a feature; it’s woven into the very fabric of our solutions. Our Information Security Program embraces a defense-in-depth approach.

Visibility and Adaptability: Keeping Up with the Dynamic Landscape
As the digital ecosystem continues to shift and change, having visibility is key. We proactively stay abreast of the evolving threat landscape, industry standards, and regulations. For instance, in response to the growing demand for Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) adoption, we are actively engaged in understanding and implementing these regulations, ensuring we adhere to the latest industry standards.
Our Security in Action
Securing Every Facet: Our Information Security Program spans a wide spectrum, from rigorous personnel security checks and ongoing training to robust encryption techniques.
