CIPS British Columbia

About Kyle: 

What is your Background?

My interest in computers started in the mid-eighties with a Commodore 64. I became fascinated with enabling systems to speak to each other. That led me into networking where I became a Cisco Partner and a Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) in routing and switching. Along the way, I have worked with many operating systems, programming languages and picked up other certifications. I am currently studying in the Master of Science in Information Systems through Athabasca University. The program is challenging yet incredibly rich. I continue to be inspired as I find new ways to apply technology.
 
I am very thankful to have a wonderful family and supportive wife. None of my work or study would be possible without her by my side.
 
Working at Consumer Protection BC provides a unique opportunity to give back. We are a not-for-profit corporation that promotes a fair marketplace in BC for consumers and businesses by overseeing three provincial acts and regulating a variety of industries. Knowing that my work benefits others drives me to succeed.
 

What type of Involvement have you had with CIPS?

Ian McLeod introduced me to CIPS. The community in Victoria hosts excellent events, which has given me new perspectives on issues outside of my expertise. The commitment of the leaders in CIPS BC inspires those around them.

I joined CIPS in 2015 to meet the requirements for the MSc IS Graduate Program at Athabasca. The ability to join this excellent program through the ISP Designation is incredible. This benefit compelled me to give back and join the Certification Review Committee in 2016 to reduce the processing time for applicants.

This year I joined the CIPS BC Board of Directors where I will be working to address strategic issues facing CIPS on both provincial and national levels. In this rapidly evolving world, ethics needs to be at the forefront. CIPS should be accountable to its members and needs to adapt to stay relevant. Members need to be stewards of the society and profession. Now is the time to take action to speak against inequity.

 

What value has your involvement with CIPS provided?

I have experienced many rewards through CIPS membership. As iron sharpens iron, sharing ideas in this collaborative environment has refined my understanding of topics ranging from AI and blockchain to corporate strategy and risk analysis. I am proud and honoured to be in an organization with such incredibly talented members.
