You know how many IT shops struggle to provide effective security and compliance without busting their budget? I work with CEOs, CFOs, CIOs to help them use security and controls as enablers to allow them to benefit from new technology. I am an IT manager and auditor by experience, but my passion is making the best use
You know how many IT shops struggle to provide effective security and compliance without busting their budget? I work with CEOs, CFOs, CIOs to help them use security and controls as enablers to allow them to benefit from new technology. I am an IT manager and auditor by experience, but my passion is making the best use of technology to achieve the mission.
Because I have a knack for understanding the logic and practical application of controls, I help others understand how to best benefit from efficient use of controls. I design control systems that fit the people and processes that use and rely on the systems involved.Controls add more value than they cost when they provide the tools and information you need to know how to better manage the processes. And I am particularly good at helping other people understand the structure and purpose of controls.
Compliance is a wonderful thing – unless it becomes your objective. When your objective is to meet enterprise needs with the most effective technology and also provide ongoing evidence that things are working as they are supposed to, then compliance with policies, standards, regulations, and legislation becomes the means to accomplish your own goals.
I am happy being the leader or supporting the leader as the situation dictates. I am familiar with the security, risk, and control frameworks, and adept at quickly coming up to speed on specific requirements. This skill has allowed me to work effectively with SOX, HIPAA, PCI, and BSA/AML compliance.
I bring lots of energy as well as experience. (I need the energy - I have three sons in middle and high school, and we do many things together including running, surfing, and Boy Scout activities.)
I am also an experienced researcher and writer. I write policies and procedures, professional and how-to articles, and even books. I write the annual updates to the LexisNexis Handbook for Internal Auditors. Can we solve some problems together?
