CISO, OIG, HHS
Steven Hernandez has worked in the information security field for the past seventeen years in a variety of contexts. He has worked on the front lines in operations centers and led research teams attempting to balance security, privacy, and other mission considerations. He has experience in international manufacturing, healthcare, non-profits, and government at the federal, state, and local levels. The greatest strength that he will bring to the Board is the culmination of his experience in organizational strategy, cybersecurity, and business operations. He has had the opportunity to contribute to tactical, day-to-day security operations as well as guide and influence broad security initiatives such as the US government's FedRAMP program across large organizations with international presence. Mr. Hernandez believes that the best security performance and most comprehensive solutions come from collaborative efforts where we combine the right processes, implement the appropriate technology, and train people to solve our most complex problems. He has volunteered and served (ISC)2 for the better part of the past decade. After becoming a member of (ISC)2 he was invited, and volunteered, to write exams, serve on the U.S. Government Advisory Board for Cybersecurity (GAB), judge for the Government Information Security Leadership Awards (GISLA) and contribute to its Executive Writers Bureau over the span of almost a decade. Mr. Hernandez is the lead author and editor of the third edition of the (ISC)2 Official Guide to the CISSP CBK, the (ISC)2 Official Guide to the HCISPP CBK, and several published works about information assurance with international collaboration.
