Former Twilio Privacy Exec Joins Data Management Fintech Skyflow as Chief Privacy Officer

Skyflow recently announced that Robin Andruss, previously Twilio’s Data Protection Officer and Director, Global Privacy Governance, has joined Skyflow as Chief Privacy Officer.

In this role, she will “oversee the company’s privacy and data protection commitments for Skyflow’s Data Privacy Vaults for enterprise, fintech and healthcare organizations.”

With ongoing changes in privacy laws, data-sharing agreements and security recommendations by the US and EU governments, companies of all sizes “are navigating an ever-evolving landscape.”

In her new role as Chief Privacy Officer, Robin will be:

  • Helping customers understand implications of GDPR, CCPA, etc., “on their privacy posture”
  • Engaging with the privacy community on privacy “by design, and evangelizing the vault architecture”
  • Leading Skyflow’s participation at industry events “like IAPP and helping frame public policy and laws that impact privacy and data sharing”

Prior to Skyflow, Andruss has “held senior-level privacy positions at Google, Yahoo, and Trustarc.”

She has experience building, leading and scaling all aspects of a privacy program and understands global governmental privacy policies and legislation, “including GDPR, CCPA, COPPA, HIPAA and others.”

In addition to her professional roles, Andruss has also served as “a faculty member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) and is a startup advisory board member.”

Andruss brings deep policy expertise “to Skyflow’s community of customers and partners dedicated to solving the world’s data privacy challenges.” Her addition to the company follows a $45M Series B funding round and “a variety of new partnerships with leading fintech players including Visa, Alloy and Moov.”

Andruss stated:

“I was drawn to Skyflow because the company vision is unique and simple: build a data privacy vault with a simple API. My role as Chief Privacy Officer is to ensure Skyflow continues to lead the industry in privacy and data protection while supporting an ever-growing roster of innovative customers across verticals.”

Anshu Sharma, CEO and co-founder at Skyflow, remarked:

“We’re excited to have Robin on board in our mission to transform how businesses handle their users’ financial, healthcare and personal data. Robin brings a wealth of real-world knowledge and experience, and has spent her career leading privacy initiatives and policies at every level. She will have an immediate impact on ensuring we continue our leading position in data protection and privacy as we add to our products and services.”

Skyflow’s approach to privacy radically “simplifies how companies manage, access and govern their sensitive data.”

The company’s zero-trust data vault “with an elegant API allows developers to bring applications and workflows to market with best-of-breed data privacy, security and compliance.”

Skyflow’s approach to data privacy can be “implemented within hours, enabling customers to scale their offerings quickly and securely.”

Founded in 2019, Skyflow is “a data privacy vault for sensitive data.” Their founders wanted “to radically transform how businesses handle their users’ financial, healthcare and other personal data — the data that powers the digital economy.”

Inspired by the data vaults that leaders like Apple and Netflix built “to handle customer data, our vision was to deliver the same kind of data privacy vault as a simple and elegant API, something any developer could easily build into their application, the same way they use Stripe, Twilio or Okta.”

Skyflow is based in Palo Alto, California, “with offices in Bangalore, India.”
