Topic: Cyber Hygiene
Join us for this presentation by Dr. Kimberlee Ann Brannock, Senior Security Advisor, HP Worldwide Security Practice
Time and Location: February 19th, at Albertsons HQ, 250 E Parkcenter Blvd @ 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM.
Security it is in our DNA. Dr. Kimberlee Ann Brannock will provide real world examples of how to demonstrate good cyber hygiene by understanding how to identify, prioritize and respond to risks. The discussion will include outlining the holistic relationship amongst technology, people and processes, along with establishing a security posture baseline and the development of a roadmap to plan, manage, and maintain control of your data and thus demonstrate good cyber hygiene. One of the take aways is to make good cyber hygiene such a habit it gets into you and your organization’s DNA.
As a Senior Security Advisor, Dr. Kimberlee Ann Brannock brings extensive knowledge and experience in compliance, risk, governance, IT, Information Security and privacy to help drive and shape HP’s worldwide security practice.
As well as working with the HP security business unit, HP R&D, HP Labs, HP Business Units, HP Product Teams, and HP Global Functions to ensure HP’s leadership role in security, Dr. Brannock also educates clients on the importance of security including such items as security governance (exempli gratia (e.g.): security policies, security procedures, processes, standards and specifications) risk, compliance and information security for imaging and printing (includes devices, data, documents).
During her 20-year tenure at HP, Dr. Brannock has led the HP initiative toward stronger
cybersecurity, stronger privacy, better and stronger cybersecurity governance, risk,
compliance, and information security, including better and stronger cybersecurity
services, processes and procedures. Dr. Brannock served on the HP Compliance
Community Forum, the HP Federal Compliance Council, the HP Regulatory Compliance
Review Board, the HP Policy Review Team, and the HP PCI Council (pre-split), and the PCI Security Standards Council Board of Advisors representing HP.
Pre HP Company split (approximately $122 Billion USD per annum company), Dr.
Brannock was an HP Cybersecurity Manager, leading several global Cybersecurity
Initiatives including the WW PCI Program, and worked on Separation Management Office activities prior to the Hewlett Packard split, focusing on cybersecurity with the aim of successfully supporting both companies leading to the split as it related to all things
cybersecurity. This led to determining the Cybersecurity function in existence would
move over to Hewlett Packard Enterprise, leading to a huge opportunity to build out the
Cybersecurity global function from scratch, which Dr. Brannock seized.
Dr. Brannock moved into the role of Senior Security Advisor in 2017 after serving as HP’s Cybersecurity Manager for Governance, Risk, Compliance and Information Security. Here, she built HP’s Cybersecurity operation from the ground up, as a result of Hewlett-Packard Company splitting from a $122 Billion USD company into two companies worth $50+ billion USD each.
Before HP, Dr. Brannock began her career by building a family dot-com retail business,
which her family liquidated and sold in mid-2000. In tandem, Dr. Brannock continued to
work in technology security, advising with several companies, including HP (prior to joining HP), to help them understand issues such as IT consumption, governance, risk,
compliance, security, IT and Cybersecurity budgeting, IT and Cybersecurity strategy,
innovation, IT implementation, IT operations and security operations.
Dr. Brannock holds degrees in accounting, corporate accounting, business, business
administration, management information systems, and a professional doctorate
specializing in technology and law (jurisprudence) for which she received a distinguished scholar award. In addition, Dr. Brannock is a PhD Candidate in Information Technology, Information Assurance and Cybersecurity.
She also holds several credentials, including the CGRCM-IT, CISA, CSOXM, and PMP.
Dr. Brannock participates in several organizations including ISACA, IAPP, ISSA, PMI, PCI , SSC and in June 2017 finished serving more than two years on the PCI Security Standards Council Board of Advisors, which is a standards (including data security standards) setting body for the payment card industry.
