As an information security, privacy protection and business continuity leader, I have always have had to wear two hats, whenever I have been involved in optimizing risks. One as a subject matter expert and another as an IT transformation leader. I have successfully reduced operational cost, reduced operations by streamlining and consolidating activities and established global programs by removing silos effectively within organizations while remaining focused upon the rigor needed to ensure procedures are established and maintained with specific focus on risk optimization. I approach my challenges to establish structure, ensure crisp and clear communications and try to achieve improvement by making them standardized, comparable, and predictable. In the past 26 years I have worked in and out of various parts of the organization, as a sales person, as a consultant, as a CISO, a Practice Leader and as leader transforming information security, business continuity, data privacy and risk management across the organization.
