Proven executive leader in information privacy and security; board-certified senior-level cybersecurity and IT exec. Successful pro at privacy and security management, HITRUST, ACET, DIACAP, HIPAA, FISMA, PCI, and federal, state, and industry regulatory audits, assessments, and depositions.

Author of several cybersecurity articles and references, including, “Healthcare Information Security and Privacy,” Sean is currently servicing as the Senior Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer at BECU and is an Adjunct Faculty at University of Washington Bothell.

Industry or Academia, which path to choose? Often this is a choice people feel they have to make during the course of their careers. In the Cybersecurity industry there is much debate around degrees vs. certifications vs. real world experience, it can be helpful to hear from someone who has pursued it all. 

In this evening talk, Sean will reflect on his decades in the Security field alongside his personal passion for learning. He’ll talk about his experience in his Doctorate program, the challenges and the rewards, and how that has impacted his career.

This will be a hybrid meeting (both in-person and online). You may attend remotely via Zoom or attend in person. Either way, please register!
