Statement of Goals

The ISSA is and always has been the premiere Information Security Association in the world. With 150 Chapters and Members in more than 70 countries, the ISSA truly reflects the global nature of our profession and the issues we deal with on a global scale. As a Lifetime Member of the ISSA, the Hall of Fame and an ISSA Fellow – the value of ISSA is very clear to me. I would like to make that value clear to the tens of thousands of Information Security Professionals around the world who need to become part of this amazing organization.

Cloud computing, virtualization, mobilization, consumerization – all are areas that will significantly impact us in our professional lives and potentially redefine the very concept of "Information Security.” We are all dealing with an increasingly sophisticated and very professional global adversary; with hundreds of thousands of new vulnerabilities each day; with increasingly global and complex legislation and regulation – all of which impact our ability to effectively do our jobs. We all need a mechanism to work together to address these issues. We all need to be part of the ISSA.

As your International President, I will increase the visibility of the ISSA on an international scale and across all levels of our profession. The issues we are dealing with are global in nature. They span all aspects of our profession from risk management to strategy to the design and deployment of technologies. We need a global view into the problems so we can understand them. We also need a view into the solutions that are working for others around the world – not just in our local area. We all need to be collaborating more effectively to deal with today’s global cyber security issues. We need easy and inexpensive access to top quality training by leaders in our industry – so we can continue to develop our expertise and grow in our careers.

My membership and participation in the ISSA has been one of, if not the most important factor in the growth and success of my career. As CISO and VP of Global Fraud, Risk & Security for eBay, and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Cloud Security Alliance, I have seen the phenomenal growth of our industry and our profession across the world. Both will continue to grow. I can help increase the visibility of the ISSA on an international scale. I can help others to recognize the incredible value of the ISSA, making us and our organization bigger and stronger as a result. A more robust ISSA benefits us all. I would appreciate your vote for International President so I can help make that happen.
