I worked with Paul for about 3 ½ years. During this time, Paul helped me develop from an Intern into a CISSP. He graciously shares his experience and skills with others and is constantly seeking new knowledge. He recommended reading material that helped me develop not only in the field of Information Security, but in my personal growth as well. As Director of Information Security he led our team to become strategic Information Security thinkers instead of focusing just on day to day operations. Under his leadership, out team developed Policies and Standards, improved the Information Security Exception process, and initiated a Metrics program and Business Process Assessment program. Just to name a few. When Paul left the company, I was happy for him and his new opportunity, but sad to lose a true leader and mentor.
