So, why am I doing this? Simple really. An email went out Aug 21 from ISC2 that announced a few of the people who were seeking election to the ISC2 board. I realized that this was my chance to make a change. It’s time for me to do something about it rather than to sit idly by on the sidelines.
If I’m chosen for the Board of Directors here is what I’m aiming to accomplish,
- I want to work to restore the CISSP exam and it’s place in the community as something to be respected
- I want to help bring the ISC2 into the wider acceptance in the community and help make it a force for positive change
- I want to ensure that the ISC2 is representative and accountable to it’s membership
So, a little about me. I have over 15 years industry experience in IT security architecture, operations and management. Currently, I work in information security for Advanced Micro Devices. I’m also the founder
of Liquidmatrix Security Digest.
Prior to my current role, I worked in the finance, healthcare, entertainment and critical infrastructure verticals. I have worked for a defense contractor as a security consultant to clients such as the FBI, US Navy, Social Security Administration, US Postal Service and the US Department of Defense to name a few.
In addition to my volunteer work with Defcon and Sector I have my fingers in many pies trying to do my part. I’m currently working with other members of Liquidmatrix to launch an open Canadian CERT.
When I’m not working 27 hours a day I can be found spending time with my family, playing bass guitar and polishing my “brick of enlightenment”.
Please spread the word and thank you for your support!
