PRIVACY, RISK, ETHICS, AND COMPLIANCE OFFICER | SR. DATA GOVERNANCE EXPERT (CERTIFIED IN COBIT 2019 FOUNDATION) | TWO DECADES OF TOP DATA ARCHITECTURE, MANAGEMENT, AND BUSINESS EXPERIENCE (FIN, HEALTH, INS)

Denver Metropolitan Area

Thank you for visiting my profile! My name is Kathryn (Ballard) Shut - last name pronounced like /shoot/ and I am based in the Denver (Colorado) Metro Area. I am empowered to collaborate 100% remotely and have done so with top firms for the past two decades.

I hold an MBA (Magna Honors) from Webster University, a Certification in ISACA COBIT 2019 Foundation (I&T Governance), and more than 20 years' empirical experience in Data Management & Architecture (DW/DM/BI, MDM, Big Data, Cybersecurity), with 18 of those years as a leader/manager/VP within the Insurance, Finance, and Governmental sectors. In spite of these senior-level credentials, I approach new informational and technical (I&T) challenges with the freshness of an innovator, but held in check by the experience of a veteran.

Most recently, I have returned to school to earn a second Master's Degree in Legal Studies (MLS), concentrating in Cybersecurity and Information Privacy (at Drexel University's Thomas R. Kline School of Law) and I am actively working as a Lead Data Governance Steward on long-term contact for the State of Colorado - Dept. of Human Services (CDHS), in support of these career goals.

As one can see, my passion is learning and solving complex business and technological dilemmas. One of the main ways I navigate this enduring puzzle is to understand the basic business strategy (cost leader, growth, customer, innovation, etc.), determine existing risk, and optimize technology to serve people -- not the other way around.

Therefore, I am always open to impactful opportunities that demand a keen knowledge officer. I am excited to meet and collaborate with fellow risk-averse, governance, cybersecurity, and privacy specialists from around the world.
