Stacy J. Thomas, CISA, CIA, CISSP, CIPP-US, CIRM

Information Risk Management Geek

IT Audit Director, MetLife

Stacy is an IT Audit Director focusing on cybersecurity, business continuity/disaster recovery, privacy, data protection, and technical reviews for MetLife.  Her 20+ year career in financial services includes information security, privacy, and IT Audit. 

 As Information Security Officer, she developed and implemented a comprehensive risk-based information security program while managing the balance between organizational needs and information security requirements.  Her responsibilities included oversight of the Business Continuity recovery program, which included performing quantitative and qualitative risk assessment to identify critical areas and processes.

 While Privacy Officer, she designed and implemented a system to capture regulations and the associated inherent risk, business unit residual risk, testing/monitoring, and issue tracking.  She also developed a method to provide a remediation cost profile to compare an incident cost against the cost of preventing occurrences.  This cost profile led to reimbursement from vendors for data loss incidents.  She also led the development and implementation of the Identity Theft Red Flags program resulting in a comprehensive and proactive approach to the requirements.

During her audit role, she used her analytical skills to uncover the single, largest embezzlement in company history - $2 million.  She was instrumental in developing a repeatable process to identify, document, and test key IT controls over financial reporting.

Stacy’s unique perspective and experience allows her to communicate technology risks and concepts clearly and convincingly to business leaders and stakeholders.
