Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) August 05, 2013
(ISC)²® (“ISC-squared”), the world’s largest information security professional body and administrators of the CISSP®, today announced it has appointed two new members to its North American Advisory Board (NAAB). The NAAB represents a group of 10-20 senior-level, volunteer information security professionals in North America who advise (ISC)² on industry initiatives, policies, standards, and workforce concerns.
The following individuals were recently appointed to the (ISC)² NAAB:
- Blair Campbell, CISSP, CIPP/C, CISA, CCSK, senior manager of Privacy at Scotiabank. Mr. Campbell has over 15 years of experience in information security, specializing in incident management, privacy impact assessments, policy and procedure development and implementation, privacy, governance, and compliance. He is currently senior manager of privacy for Scotiabank, where his primary responsibilities include management of privacy issues to reduce the bank's legal, reputational, and regulatory risk. He provides support, advice, and awareness to business units on privacy issues, with a particular emphasis on the effective management of breaches. He is also a volunteer mentor for the (ISC)² Foundation’s Safe and Secure Online program and helped bring the program to Canada in 2011.
- Bridget Kravchenko, CISSP, MSBIT, director of Information Security at Meritor. Ms. Kravchenko received her CISSP in 2001 and co-authored Global Technology Audit Guide (GTAG) 6: Managing Risks and IT Vulnerabilities. As the director of Information Security at Meritor, she is responsible for information security and compliance globally for Meritor. She has responsibility for developing a strategic security plan, security metrics, security programs, risk management and remediation and incident response. During her time at Meritor, Ms. Kravchenko has established a risk assessment framework for new projects to help the business understand the data risk by using SAAS and external third parties.
The members of the NAAB provide insight and advice to the (ISC)² executive management team on policies and programs that impact the information security profession and the people working in it. As part of this work, they sponsor regional (ISC)² leadership initiatives, including the (ISC)² Americas Information Security Leadership Awards (Americas ISLA®) and the Executive Writers Bureau (EWB).
“We are delighted to welcome Blair and Bridget to the NAAB. Their extensive experience, proven leadership and passion for strengthening their local civic and professional communities, will be invaluable to furthering the work of the NAAB and (ISC)²,” said W. Hord Tipton, CISSP-ISSEP, CAP, CISA, executive director, (ISC)².
The goals of the NAAB are to offer deeper insights into the needs of the information security community in North America; discuss matters of policy or initiatives that drive professional development; provide feedback on (ISC)² programs, activities and opportunities; and make introductions to influential organizations, bodies, and institutions to industries with which (ISC)² should engage to inspire a safe and secure cyber world.
