Her thought leadership has helped clients understand and follow industry best practices for information security and privacy programs and be prepared for emerging technology regulations.
“At Vantage, I have the good fortune to work with a team that does exceptional work every day and looks at each new project as an opportunity to create something meaningful, useful, and actionable. We know our higher education clients are counting on us to help them unravel the privacy and information security intricacies inherent in digital transformation strategies, and we take pride in providing thoughtful analysis, policies, and roadmaps that help colleges and universities move forward. I love that we focus on delivering results and value for our clients and that we have fun doing it. I am excited to continue working with my Vantage colleagues to build the firm and the high-quality consulting for which we are known.”—Joanna Grama, JD, CISSP, Partner, Vantage Technology Consulting Group
