Zane Gittins is a Systems Security Engineer at Haas Automation and recently graduated from CSUCI with a bachelors in Computer Science. Zane started his journey at Haas as an intern through CSUCI partnerships with local business and was recently hired full time. During his undergraduate career he worked under Dr. Pilarcyzk as an assistant in research focused on Persistent Homology. During his capstone project he worked closely with Dr. Soltys to provide a security best practices document to Haas. He continues to expand his education in the CI masters of Computer Science program (MSCS).
Understanding “industry best practices” involves a simple process of distilling expectations for both cybersecurity and privacy requirements. This process is all part of identifying reasonable expectations that are “right-sized” for an organization, since every organization has unique requirements. It can be best to visualize “best practices” as a buffet of cybersecurity and privacy controls, where you select what is applicable to your organization, based on statutory, regulatory and contractual obligations.
Ventura College is currently in search for a CS faculty member. Initially to begin as an adjunct and then an opportunity to apply for tenure faculty. This is a good opportunity for our MSCS students. The contact is Lynn Wright at Ventura Collge. 805-289-6232.
