Chief Information Security Officer

Art Chaisiriwatanasai

As Chief Information Security Officer, the ultimate goal of my team is to keep the private information of our many customers and employees safe from undue harm or access.  The best part of my job is being able to work collaboratively with nearly every part of our business, leveraging my natural curiosity to help strike the right balance between managing our digital risk while allowing teams to operate at the same level of innovation that made Paylocity the market leader it is today.

I have dedicated the last 18 years of my career to cybersecurity, in both industry and consulting positions. Before Paylocity, I worked in various leadership roles as a Director at KPMG, where I helped the world’s largest companies solve their most complex problems.

I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, not too far from our headquarters.  I received my bachelor’s degree in network security from DePaul University and have stayed in the city ever since.  In the moments not related to Cybersecurity, I enjoy cooking, playing video games, and finding new excuses not to exercise.

“Paylocity’s security culture is among the best that I’ve witnessed.  The importance is driven from the top down, and everyone has secured our customer’s data as top of mind.  Security is usually seen as an impediment in most businesses; it is an amazing thing to see the level eagerness of an entire company rally around your group’s mission.”
