JLL Taps Joe Silva to Head Up Info Security Strategy

JLL recently hired Joe Silva as chief information security officer (CISO) to lead JLL’s information security strategy. Silva will work closely with global technology teams across the company including JLL Technologies, JLL’s business division dedicated to commercial real estate technology.

As the commercial real estate industry becomes increasingly data-driven and technology-enabled, Silva will oversee all facets of JLL’s information security approach to protect employees, customers and products. His remit will include threat management and oversight of security policies, procedures and preventative measures.

“Technology has become mission critical for real estate companies,” said George Thomas, chief information officer at JLL. “As the commercial real estate industry embraces technology and data-driven decision-making, we are pleased to welcome an industry leader like Joe Silva to head up our security posture. With Joe’s experience leading security practices, both internal and commercial, JLL is well positioned to lead the industry in reshaping the future of work and the built environment with technology.”

Prior to JLL, Silva worked at credit reporting agency and data analytics company TransUnion. Before that, he worked on the commercial product side of cybersecurity with Symantec and iSight Partners. Silva spent his early career in a variety of security roles in the U.S. military and federal government with a significant focus on addressing cyber threats to critical infrastructure.
