Company: CyberSecurityBase

Job Title: CEO and Founder


Rocio Baeza is the CEO and Founder of CyberSecurityBase, a consulting practice that helps rising tech companies get started with data security. There are volumes of data security and privacy laws/regulations, frameworks, and standards out there. Technology leaders are overwhelmed with too much information, oftentimes not knowing where to start and what to focus on. CyberSecurityBase operates with a mission is to simplify security, teach that model, and empower tech leaders.

Rocio studied Mathematics at the University of Chicago. Her professional background includes data analytics, product management, and IT compliance in the private sector. She moved up the ranks as an Analyst, Manager, and CISO. During this time, Rocio has observed that rising tech companies are in a unique position where they are offering innovative products and services, however, the traditional information security model is an immediate poor fit. This is leaving emerging tech companies AND consumers in a vulnerable position, and Rocio is on a mission to help change that.

    My Experience Teaching a Simple GDPR Implementation Approach on YouTube

    In 2018, Rocio challenged herself to try and come up with a simplified GDPR implementation plan that she can teach online on YouTube. Why? In working with various security and privacy laws/regulations/frameworks, she has experienced first-hand the difficulty in translating requirements into clear and actionable steps. GDPR requires much-needed measures for the responsible management and use of personal data. As a data privacy advocate, she welcomed the measures that provide consumers with choice and transparency over the use of their personal data. As a data security professional, she appreciates the absence of technical jargon and assumption that all organizations are running on an “old-school” IT environment. This is a win for consumers, organizations, and the data privacy industry.

    As business and tech leaders decide on their approach for reaching and maintaining GDPR compliance, Rocio provides a simple implementation approach that doesn't conflict with creativity and innovation that rising tech companies are bringing to the table.
