Past Membership Director (2015-2016)
Don Williams is a passionate seasoned Information Security professional with 20 years of technical experience within the telecommunications industry. He pioneered the forming and organic growth of application vulnerability service from single contributor to multidisciplinary enterprise team.
He contributes to the security community by volunteering his time as a member of the ISC2.org item writing team authoring and reviewing CISSP test questions from 2006-08; co-led the OWASP Mobile Security Project from 2012-13, and formerly served on the Board of Directors for Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) Orange County chapter.
Don earned his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto, ON, and over time learned that a “BA” in the 90’s translated to “back again”. As a result he continued his journey of professional development attaining multiple security certifications, technical certificates, and his Master of Science in Information Systems from Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ.
Don lives in Huntington Beach, California and in his spare time he enjoys collecting music memorabilia, good food and spending time at the beach.
