  • Deep understanding of security assurance and trust frameworks (SOC 2 - AICPA Trust Service Principles, NIST 800-53, ISO2700x, CSA STAR, etc.)
  • Strong understanding of different types of application architectures (e.g. monoliths vs service-oriented architecture), and application deployment models (e.g. on-prem vs. cloud)
