Cyber Security Expert, International TV Commentator, Strategic International Consultant & Author
Dr. Adriana Sanford is an internationally respected cyber security expert, educator, keynote, and international television commentator, who appears regularly as a CNN analyst/contributor to 49 million households. Her expertise is on global threats and laws at the international level, where possible outcomes for corporate non-compliance creates criminal liability in foreign territories. The former counsel of a Fortune 50 company warns that legal ethics rules vary in foreign countries and sometimes conflict with domestic rules, which creates the legal and moral dilemma of deciding which rules to follow and which to break. She has distinguished herself by educating executives, thousands of college students, and the public on the threats and dangers of corporate corruption in foreign nations.
In the last ten years, Dr. Sanford has had numerous articles published that cover important and current aspects of global corporate ethics and compliance by the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) and the International Enforcement Law Reporter. With over 50,000 members in 100 countries, ISM is the largest institute in the world for supply chain leaders. They also adopted two of Dr. Sanford’s books (which she co-authored with Hewlett Packard’s Chief Technology Officer for Europe, Middle East and Africa and other internationally recognized experts) on global threats commemorating ISM’s centennial anniversary. More recently, the privacy and cyber security expert co-authored a security book, Women in Security: Changing the Face of Technology and Innovation that is part of the Women in Science and Engineering book series.
