Q&A With Tom McAndrew, Chief Operating Officer At Coalfire

Maurice Gilbert: How did you get started on a career in compliance? Tom McAndrew: I started my career in the Navy. As the Navy started putting more technology on ships, they realized that they needed to create better certification programs to ensure that all the systems operated correctly, specifically the combat systems (missiles, radars, guns, etc.). After getting off two deployments in the gulf, I was asked to audit and assess the designs of future Navy ships. After I left the Navy I took a totally different turn and supported more than 100 banks and credit unions with their IT assessments following GLBA requirements.

As a result, learning how to deal with cybersecurity risk is of critical importance to an enterprise, and it must therefore be addressed strategically from the very top. Cybersecurity management can no longer be a concern delegated to the information technology (IT) department. It needs to be everyone’s business — including the board’s.
