Over the past several years, a fundamental shift has occurred within information security leaders that has transformed the role from being solely technology-focused, to a strategic business leadership role. Operationally this means that rather than just reactively responding to security incidents, the focus has evolved into an intelligent, holistic risk management. This requires expertise in both technical and business environments.
A marquee leader in information security, Jim Nelms, has joined WGroup as a Principal Consultant. Jim is the former Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) of the Mayo Clinic where he successfully protected patient, intellectual property and financial data with zero known loss. Previously, he also served as CISO for The World Bank for Treasury and Global Operations for nearly 15 years. WGroup Founder and CEO, Harry Wallaesa, shares his excitement of Jim joining the WGroup team, “Our clients are demanding impartial guidance that positions them to effectively manage cyber security risks. I am pleased to have Jim join the team as a chief advisor for our clients. His experience as a CISO aligns squarely with the value proposition of our firm, to deliver executive-to-executive impartial advisory that achieves the outcomes IT executives need today.”
