SVP, Technology and Cybersecurity Risk Management - BPI
Cybersecurity has never been more important. With each passing day, more of the systems that provide us with food, water, shelter, financial services, energy and communication are digitized. Private sector operators of these critical infrastructure systems are the front lines of defense, so public sector leaders do what they can: regulate…but often in a fragmented manner. In the United States alone, the federal regulatory agencies reported 43 separate and distinct cyber supervisory expectations applicable to the financial services sector. This volume of regulatory activity can be counterproductive because when private sector firms are required to focus up to 40% of their cyber professionals’ time on compliance related activities, they have less time to protect systems.
You can do something about that.
We have worked at the intersection of business, technology, innovation and cybersecurity for over 22 years, sharing information across the financial industry, collaborating with government and regulatory partners, and acting as a compelling voice in Washington on operational, regulatory and policy issues. The Bank Policy Institute (BPI) is a nonpartisan public policy, research, and advocacy group that represents the nation’s leading banks. Collectively our members serve as an engine for financial innovation and economic growth, employing nearly 2 million Americans, making 72% of all loans and nearly half of the nation’s small business loans. Our technology policy division (BITS) promotes safety and soundness in the technology and infrastructure of the financial services system.
Led by C-Suite executives including CEOs, CIOs, CISOs, CROs, and other senior leaders, we bring our members together with regulators, government agencies, and technology firms. Our executive forums advance collaboration in the regulatory and risk environment, address current and emerging policy issues, improve effectiveness of technology programs, promote critical infrastructure resilience, and strengthen cybersecurity and reduce fraud. Our work is vitally important to leaders across the financial services industry including banks, insurance firms, asset managers, card companies, financial market utilities, and trade associations. Our real-world expertise enables our members to identify and manage risk, with a particular focus on cybersecurity, fraud reduction, critical infrastructure protection, data protection, and emerging technology.

Reporting directly to the President of BITS, you will join a talented team of information technology, risk, and regulatory experts. In this high visibility role, you will serve as a thought partner, working with operating executives at member firms and public sector leaders in developing a forward looking, harmonized, standardized cybersecurity strategy. You will have frequent external interaction as you educate, gather input from, and formulate a consensus led point of view that represents the entire financial services sector (as well as other vital elements of our nation’s infrastructure including telecommunications and energy). You will take the lead in convening meetings, hosting regional conferences, and developing trusted partnerships.
Additionally, you will collaborate with your colleagues to support our work in fraud reduction, regulatory technology, risk management, and innovation. Beyond your significant portfolio of work in cybersecurity, you will also be instrumental in helping to develop policy priorities in areas including cyber orchestration, dev/sec/ops, security standards, third-party risk management, data privacy, and critical infrastructure resilience.
