At Opendoor, so much of what we do is rooted in data, from massive housing data sets to product analytics to customer information while they’re transacting with us. And an organization’s data is only as strong as the security protecting it. Thousands of homebuyers and homeowners trust our platform to make buying and selling their home simpler and more convenient. Protecting data is a job we don’t take lightly.
Today, I’m excited to announce that Noah Beddome will join Opendoor as our Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). Noah will be responsible for protecting the data and technology infrastructure that is core to our business. He will oversee Opendoor’s information security program and IT. Most importantly, he will help to maintain the trust we have with our customers by ensuring the integrity of our data systems.
Noah has more than a decade of experience working in information security in enterprise and government environments. Most recently, he served as VP of Security Engineering and interim CISO for Datadog, one of the largest cloud monitoring and security platforms serving thousands of companies across the globe. The teams he managed secure vast amounts of data processed by large cloud companies. Previously, Noah worked as the Practice Director for Strategic Infrastructure Services (SIS) at NCC Group, where he built and led the SIS practice. Noah began his career in security consulting, conducting assessments and penetration testing for several firms. He also served as a non-commissioned officer in the U.S. Marine Corps for four years.
Noah brings a motivated and collaborative spirit that is imperative to tackling unique and modern day security challenges, and he’s got the determination of a Marine. His positive energy is abundant, and I’m thrilled to have him on board.
Buying and selling a home is one of the biggest financial transactions a person will make in their lifetime, and I’m grateful for everyone on our team working to make that a smooth, safe, and secure experience for homeowners across the country.
