Philadelphia, PA – Security Risk Advisors is proud to announce the recent hire of a new director, Mamani Older of Westchester, NY. Older will serve on SRA’s executive leadership team overseeing the direction and operations of the consulting firm that specializes in providing clients with ethical hacking, cyber defense engineering, compliance, and 24×7 security monitoring and response. SRA’s work is distinguished by its independent perspective, commitment to educating the next generations of cyber security professionals, thought leadership, and diverse client base.
Ms. Older has nearly two decades of information security experience in a vast range of industry disciplines including retail, infrastructure, and finance, and has spent most of her career to date in financial services at BNY Mellon, Citigroup, and Synchrony Financial.
“Mamani brings rich cybersecurity experience to our team, having served in D-CISO, CISO and other leadership roles in financial services, aerospace, and media,” said CEO Tim Wainwright. “She has deep technical acumen and executive presence that will strengthen our client service and strategic direction.”
“I am thrilled to be joining SRA,” Older said. “I have built strong relationships with the SRA team and admire SRA’s leadership philosophy and their dedication to quality. I am happy to be back in consulting, and I look forward to contributing both strategically and technically as the firm grows.”

She then moved from consulting to industry, where she established, oversaw, and enhanced cybersecurity programs at BNYMellon, Citigroup, Synchrony Financial, and finally Omnicom Media Group, where she served as CISO.
Most recently, Older was the first Executive Director of Enterprise Architecture at Raytheon Technologies. During her tenure at RTX, Mamani served as the Cyber Lead for Raytheon’s simultaneous divestiture of Carrier and Otis. In the 12 months it took to finalize the spinoff, she supported both companies’ CISOs plan for and establish their security programs while maintaining compliance and operational stability for RTX globally. As Enterprise Architect, Mamani led the deployment of a global DevSecOps platform for the newly merged organization, planned for application transformation across a portfolio of roughly 4200 corporate applications, and launched a digital thread initiative across the company.
