Abrigo’s Emily Larkin Named Chief Information Security Officer of the Year by NC Tech

Raleigh, NC – Emily Larkin, Abrigo’s Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), was named the CISO of the Year by NC Tech, an association aimed to foster growth and champion innovation in North Carolina’s tech sector. She will be recognized at an awards ceremony on November 21 in Raleigh.

Larkin has been with Abrigo since its inception in January 2019 and was previously with its heritage company, Sageworks, for five years. She leads a team responsible for corporate information security, business continuity/disaster recovery, and technology-related audit and compliance initiatives. Over the past 18 months, she has overseen the company’s transition from four separate companies (Banker’s Toolbox, FARIN, MainStreet Technologies, and Sageworks) in four different regions across the U.S. into Abrigo, one cohesive and secure business poised for growth.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by NC Tech for this tremendous award,” Larkin said. “The information security landscape is growing at an incredible pace with threats increasing every day. It is more important now than ever to make sure that companies are being proactive about protecting sensitive data. It is great companies like NC Tech are recognized the work CISOs and their teams are doing.”

“Emily Larkin is a great example of how a CISO is an integral part of any enterprise,” said Brooks Raiford, President & CEO of NC TECH.  “She was instrumental in the successful combination of four distinct businesses into one, laying out a strategic vision to achieve the consolidation under one trusted information security program,” he added.

Abrigo, a leading technology provider of compliance, credit risk, and lending solutions for community financial institutions, is an FFIEC-regulated provider to one-third of all financial institutions in the U.S. Larkin’s team is tasked with monitoring and securing everything Abrigo connects with, including a substantial amount of sensitive data. They are responsible for enterprise security capabilities that protect company assets, accelerate business growth, and protect customers’ data.
