Flo Health

At Flo Health, Leo is building a world-class security function that protects 200 million users and mitigates over 40 million cyber events a week. Leo has built multi-disciplined teams that cover everything from cloud security, application security to penetration testing. All with the view of shifting left.

Notable projects delivered this year: Leo is leading compliance standards for ISO27001, aiming to certify by Q2 2022. His team have achieved the following:
  • Enhancements to Flo Health's WAF via Cloudflare
  • The adoption of CNAP with Orca Security (the first of its kind for FemTech)
  • Further expansion of Snyk into the CI/CD
  • Auth0 security into our app
  • The successful rollout of 1password for all employees
  • Private bounty on HackerOne, which has 300 ethical hackers contributing to Flo security
  • His team is introducing SIEM technologies later in the year

In his past couple of roles at the UK's largest SaaS provider for the Hospitality industry, Zonal Retail Data Systems, Leo built an award-winning Security capability from scratch to adapt to emerging threats and changing compliance remits. Zonal experiences over 200k cyberattacks a day against 30+ products across mobile, platform and cloud services. As CISO, he established a team that would have a 'hack' first approach. Before this, Leo helped scale security at FanDuel (The daily fantasy sports pioneer).
