    • Practices to ensure the privacy, security, and integrity of data throughout the collection, access, analysis, release, and retention processes.
  • Supporting the enterprise risk function in compliance and audit for GDPR, PCI DSS, and other applicable regulations
  • Working closely with the Foundation and our volunteer community to cultivate an affirmative and proactive culture that ensures security and privacy efforts are baked into the ways we share free knowledge with the world
  • Defining and setting priorities and roadmaps for the product security and privacy teams
Skills & Experience:
