After careful consideration, I am pleased to inform you that Chuck Geigner will serve as interim Chief Privacy and Security Officer starting January 16, 2022. Chuck is currently serving as Associate Director of Information Security, leading the teams that maintain security processes and systems to ensure data security at the university.
Chuck has worked across the range of software development, enterprise computing, and networking, deciding to focus solely on cybersecurity in 2007. He has led strategic cybersecurity programs since 2010. Chuck has been part of the University of Illinois Privacy & Cybersecurity team since 2012.
I want to thank Joe Barnes for his leadership. We all will continue to benefit from Joe’s perspective and expertise in his new role of Chief Digital Risk Officer for the University of Illinois System.
Please join me in welcoming Chuck as Interim Chief Privacy and Security Officer. I am confident we are in good hands.
