Joonho Lee

Cybersecurity Advisor of Enterprise Risk, Data Governance, Cyber Response, and Insider Threat

With more than 20 years of experience in digital transformation, Fintech, Regtech, cybersecurity, regulatory compliance, and data management, Mr. Lee brings significant digital security and transformation expertise to Polaris Risk.

Polaris first collaborated with Mr. Lee to tackle one of modern businesses’ most insidious threats: the rogue insider. As a co-founder of innovative cybersecurity provider, TalisAI, Mr. Lee helped to engineer and develop the “People at Potential Risk” tool, or “PAPR” – a cutting-edge intelligence tool that married Polaris’ industry-leading security and investigative strategies with TalisAI’s revolutionary machine-learning capabilities and AI accountability framework, helping organizations prevent, monitor, and respond to the many forms of personnel-borne risk.

Mr. Lee’s insights and innovative software have helped Polaris Risk successfully identify and mitigate insider threats for clients.

Since co-founding TalisAI, Mr. Lee has taken his cyber expertise into the world of cryptocurrency; he currently serves as Chief Information Security Officer of Metal – a leader in the crypto payment and digital asset space. There, Mr. Lee leverages the hard-earned knowledge that he has accrued over various prior leadership roles, including as Sr. VP & Chief Information Officer and Head of Strategy & Operations with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and San Francisco. Mr. Lee instituted and led the bank’s national cybersecurity response unit, where he proved his cybersecurity acuity on the national scale. During his tenure, Mr. Lee successfully prevented, investigated, or resolved threats to the Federal Reserve System and the US Department of the Treasury.
