"A well-defined privacy framework helps in building additional security controls because when your customers know they have the right to take legal action when their data is breached, the enterprise will automatically have additional liabilities in terms of reputation and penalties," says Kamane.

In an interview with Information Security Media Group as part of the CyberEdBoard's ongoing Profile in Leadership series, Kamane discusses:

  • The highlights of his career;
  • The importance of collaboration between risk, compliance and business continuity teams;
  • His cybersecurity goals for 2022;

Kamane has more than 18 years of progressive experience in cybersecurity, risk and resilience. His passion is building secure and resilient environments and information security programs with cybersecurity as a business enabler as well as a competitive differentiator.
