In this blog, Principal and Chief Information Security Officer, Manish Nagar, shares insights into his personal career experiences, Vanguard’s new footprint in Dallas, Texas, and why you might want to consider a career in Global Risk and Security.
My career journey at Vanguard
To start out, I have two pieces of advice for anyone reading this blog: 1) Take risks in your career – this means doing what may feel uncomfortable at times; and 2) Re-invest in and re-invent your skills multiple times throughout your career journey. You’ll see that throughout my career at Vanguard, I’ve been fortunate to have had various assignments and rotations across multiple departments and divisions. Taking risks and investing in my development has helped me become the business leader that I am today.
While growing up, I was always fascinated by the way things work, and I decided to pursue my undergrad in Engineering. When I launched my career at Vanguard in 2000, I started as part of the firm’s Technology Leadership Program (TLP), where I completed several rotations in IT that led to people leadership and program management opportunities. I also spent time in Vanguard’s Strategy, Product, Marketing, and Communications (SPMC) division, and the Investment Management division. In 2018, I joined the Global Risk & Security (GR&S) division as the Head of Risk for Europe in London, which my family and I thoroughly enjoyed, until I returned to the US to oversee the Global Investment Risk Management Group.
In 2021, I was asked to the take over the CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) role and head up our Enterprise Security and Fraud (ES&F) subdivision within GR&S. The CISO role has been the most exciting and rewarding role within my career thus far. In ES&F, we have the responsibility of protecting the data and assets of our over 30 million clients. Our clients place their trust in Vanguard and expect us to safeguard their dreams for the future – like saving for retirement or their children’s or grandchildren’s education or down payment on a house. And what drives our success are the over 900 incredibly talented and dedicated individuals that are passionate about protecting the enterprise and our clients day in and day out.
