I have over 25 years of experience in cybersecurity, risk, compliance, and technology across various industries, including finance, insurance, and energy. I hold several prestigious credentials, such as a Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC), a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), and a Doctorate in Management, Information Systems, and Technology, specializing in Cybersecurity Regulatory Compliance at Large Financial Institutions.
Besides my professional achievements, I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and expertise. I have been an Adjunct Professor of Cybersecurity at multiple universities for over four years, teaching professional and graduate-level courses. I have also authored several cybersecurity-related publications, such as the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) regulation and its implications for the industry. My mission is to empower organizations and individuals to protect their data, assets, and customers from cyber threats and to foster a culture of security and innovation.
I am the co-author of the Cyber Spear educational newsletter, which offers free daily and weekly educational newsletters to enhance cybersecurity awareness and build skills within the industry.
