Experience

As a leader within the cybersecurity group, I advise clients on which cybersecurity services can help them achieve their compliance needs — whether those needs are driven by internal or external forces. I specialize in our system and organization controls (SOC) practice where I assist our clients in understanding SOC requirements and whether their control structure meets those requirements. I have experience performing and leading projects in the areas of SOC, IT governance, information security risk management, HIPAA/HITECH, HITRUST, and ISO.
