IST Alumni Society Board member Madison Oliver won the Rising Star Award at the 2024 CIO of the Year Awards from the Pittsburgh Technology Council. The awards “recognize and honor the accomplishments of Southwestern Pennsylvania’s most hardworking chief information officers (CIOs), chief information security officers (CISOs), and IT rising stars,” according to the organization’s website

Oliver is a vulnerability transparency advocate and senior security manager at GitHub, where she leads the advisory database curation team.
