Ellen Amsel, Chief Information Security Officer, joins OIT
OIT is pleased to welcome Ellen Amsel to OIT. Following a national search, Ellen has been chosen by a campus-wide committee for the position of Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) for Princeton University, effective March 20.
Ellen will join the CIO Senior Staff and report directly to Jay Dominick, Vice President and CIO. She will lead the newly formed Information Security Office within OIT and, working with Anthony Scaturro in his role as Senior Advisor for Information Security, build on existing security programs and further OIT’s information security initiatives into new areas. She will play a critical role in envisioning, setting, and putting into operation an overall strategy to address larger institutional issues of information security in the areas of policy and practice, data governance, risk assessment, and business continuity.
"I am confident that Ellen will combine her strong technical knowledge and collaborative approach to create partnerships with members of the campus community that together will advance information security efforts at Princeton," Dominick said.
Ellen brings with her 14 years of experience in information security management, working most recently for Guidewire Software, and principally in higher education for both Stanford University School of Medicine and University of California-San Francisco.
