Mike Johnson, Chief Information Security Officer

Mike Johnson is CISO at Fastly, with over twenty years of experience in the security industry. His team secures the network and platform behind the best of the web. Before Fastly, he spent a year and a half as Lyft’s first CISO where he had overall responsibility for their cybersecurity efforts. Prior to Lyft, he spent nine years at Salesforce in various roles, ultimately building and growing their world class Detection and Response organization. He started his career prototyping intrusion detection systems for battlefield networks.


Mr. Johnson is a strong believer in focusing on security fundamentals and avoiding shiny object syndrome with a relentless drive towards maturing a program over time. More importantly, he believes that we’re not in this fight alone. We have to share, help each other out, and build meaningful relationships. He focuses on one group of these relationships as a co-host of the weekly CISO Security Vendor Relationship Podcast.
