My ardour for the effective implementation of privacy and security best practices is evident in my active involvement in shaping industry standards set forth by eminent organizations such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), and the Center for Internet Security (CIS).
