In your words, what is your role at Trava.
I do a lot of compliance work, so I focus a lot on things like SOC 2 and ISO. There's a lot of other state regulations that I help with as well. I also learn the process myself if I do not know and help them achieve those certifications when they need them, whether it be now or in the future. I also help with deliverables, like baseline cyber risk assessments, risk registers, and risk mitigation roadmaps, and the vulnerability scanning.
