Aisling MacRunnels

Chief Marketing Officer @ Synack

Aisling MacRunnels is the CMO and a founding member of Synack, the most trusted crowdsourced security platform. MacRunnels is a veteran of Sun Microsystems, where she led the initial deployments of Java on mobile clients and managed the Java Developer Community as it hit a record-breaking billion downloads. She also played a major role in developing the first open source consortiums and licenses, a pre-cursor to the crowdsourcing models we have today. Aisling’s interest in security began when her product Sun Grid, the world’s first commercial cloud, was taken down by a denial of service attack on launch day. MacRunnels has been working with Jay Kaplan and Mark Kuhr as a founding member of the Synack team since the business took shape in the basement of Kleiner Perkins in 2013.
