LAWRENCE (LARRY) J. CLINTON
Clinton is the President and CEO of the Internet Security Alliance (ISA) (www.isalliance.org). The ISA is a multi-sector trade association that focuses on thought leadership, policy advocacy and developing best practices for cyber security.
He holds a certification in Cyber Security Risk Management from Carnegie Mellon University and is a member of the faculty of the Wharton School Executive Education Program, where he teaches Cyber Security as part of the Stonier ABA Graduate Executive Program. The National Association of Corporate Directors named Mr. Clinton as one of the 100 most influential people in the field of corporate governance in 2015 and 2016. He is the longest serving member and two-time chair of the board of the IT Sector Coordinating Council and the industry Co-Chair (with DHS) of the Policy Leadership working Group. He serves on the Cybersecurity Advisory Board for the Center for Audit Quality.
He is widely published and has been a featured spokesman on cyber issues in virtually all major media outlets from WSJ, USA Today Fox News, NBC, CBS, NYT, PBS Morning Edition CNN & even MTV in India. He testifies often before Congress. He has briefed industry and governments world-wide including NATO and the OAS.
He is the primary author and editor of the ISA’s Cyber Social Contract, policy documents which have been endorsed by the House GOP Cyber Security Task Force and were the Foundation for President Obama’s Executive Order 13636 on cyber security, and the basis for an exclusive briefing on cyber security for the Republican National Committee at their National Convention in Cleveland in 2016.
He is also the principle author of the NACD Cyber Risk Handbook for corporate boards which PriceWaterhouse found had substantially improved corporate director’s management of cyber risk since its publication. The US Handbook has been endorsed by Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice while the German edition has been endorsed by their DHS equivalent Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (BSI) (Federal Office for Information Security).
The Organization of American States (OAS) has asked Mr. Clinton to do a series of cyber security workshops for corporate boards in central and South America this fall and create a Spanish language version of the Cyber Risk Handbook adapted to the Latin American region.
