The Executive Women’s Forum on Information Security, Risk Management, and Privacy (EWF) announced today Elizabeth Butwin Mann, EY Americas Cybersecurity Leader for Life Sciences and Health, has been appointed to the EWF’s Board of Advisors. The board is a network of highly influential female thought leaders from the information security, risk management, and privacy industry.
“The EWF is thrilled to have Elizabeth join the Board of Advisors,” said Joyce Brocaglia, EWF founder and CEO of Alta Associates. “We are thankful for Elizabeth’s sponsorship and commitment to actively promote cybersecurity and risk management as engaging careers for women. We need influential women like Elizabeth to break the gender gap of women in cybersecurity.”
“I look forward to working closely with my new colleagues on the EWF advisory board to help women get the education, leadership training and professional development opportunities needed to succeed in the cybersecurity field,” said Butwin Mann. “Diverse voices in leadership will lead to diverse solutions – and ultimately strengthen the entire industry.”
Butwin Mann has worked in the information security field for more than 20 years, specializing in identity and access management, identity governance and, more recently, business risk management in cybersecurity. At EY, she is developing and delivering new and transformative solutions in information security to Fortune 100 clients with a focus on Life Sciences and Healthcare. She established her leadership position early in the development of the cybersecurity landscape, looking at security from the perspective of identity, access, privilege management and entitlement reviews. She leverages EY’s global network of Advanced Security Centers to deliver world-class threat intelligence and threat management services and does it with a risk-based perspective. Butwin Mann is based in New York City.
