Straight from the floor of GSX 2022, Ken White, Expedia Group’s Senior Manager of Physical Risk, Intelligence, & Investigations, joins host Chuck Randolph to discuss the role of data-informed decisions and their effect on how information is addressed and dispersed.
In a climate of distractions and information coming in from every angle, knowing what matters to your specific business needs is crucial to maintaining a safe environment. Ken White, Expedia Group’s Senior Manager of Physical Risk, Intelligence, & Investigations, prides himself on using every tool available to inform decisions.
Ken speaks with host Chuck Randolph on how his rural midwestern upbringing inspired him to enter the security profession and shares advice that has guided him throughout his career. While he has worked in a wide range of environments, from the Indy pit crew to Expedia’s corporate headquarters, one constant that has remained instrumental to his success is listening to others. There’s an unconscious bias in each of us and listening before acting allows for a more thorough understanding of your protection stance. He also shares how Expedia responded to the global pandemic in 2020 from an internal and business perspective.
Ken White has been with Expedia Group for over four years and previously led security operations and security readiness for the Seattle campus and over 80 offices through North, Central, and South America as well as the Caribbean. His experience includes regional threat detection, security system implementation, security budgets, contracts, and staff management.
