- JetBlue hired Keith Anderson as CISO and he formally joined the company Wednesday, a spokesperson for the airline told Cybersecurity Dive. Anderson previously served in the same role at Warner Bros. Discovery.
- Anderson assumed responsibility for JetBlue’s company data, systems and digital assets while minimizing information security risk and addressing cyberthreats.
- “Keith has a proven record as a cybersecurity practitioner and will be a valuable leader in this continuously evolving technology landscape,” Carol Clements, JetBlue’s chief digital and technology officer, said in a statement. Anderson reports to Clements.
Anderson joins the airline during a period of significant challenge and opportunity, as two antitrust cases remain under regulatory scrutiny.
The Justice Department is widely expected to sue to block JetBlue’s $3.8 billion merger with Spirit Airlines. The agency is also trying to reverse the airline’s alliance with American Airlines, which it describes as a de facto merger.
“I am excited to join the team during such an exciting time of growth and innovation,” Anderson said in a statement. “I was drawn to JetBlue’s values as well as its commitment to the highest standards of security, compliance and digital transformation to protect our customers and crewmembers.”
Anderson previously held security leadership roles at AT&T, Turner, Goldman Sachs and Citi, according to LinkedIn.
JetBlue’s previous CISO Tim Rohrbaugh left the airline after a three-year stint that ended in late 2022.
