PITTSFORD, NY / ACCESSWIRE / March 31, 2022 / IGI, or Infinite Group, Inc. (OTCQB:IMCI), is thrilled to announce that IGI's Jim Ambrosini has been named the 2022 Joseph J. Wasserman Award recipient by the ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter. The award has been presented annually by the Chapter since its inception in 1978. It recognizes outstanding achievements and contributions to the cybersecurity community, including the information systems audit, control, security, risk management, and governance professions.
The Wasserman Award Committee and the Board of Directors were unanimous in their vote to name the award to Jim, who has served on ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter Board from 2007 through 2015, including serving as a President from 2011-2013. The award is given to candidates who have made a significant contribution and are currently active in the cybersecurity community. Essential characteristics of award recipients include honesty, integrity, humility, non-self-promoting, selfless dedication to enriching the cybersecurity community, and motivation for the best interests of the ISACA membership.
"From the day he joined our organization, Jim has distinguished himself as a professional that is dedicated to the cybersecurity community," said Kevin Hutchinson, VP of Cybersecurity at IGI. "He has made significant contributions to advancing cybersecurity within our organization and customers' environments. Given his focus, dedication, and commitment, I am not surprised to see his accomplishments are being recognized by ISACA and gladly acknowledge how fortunate we are to have him on our team."
Jim Ambrosini has been a Cybersecurity Consultant and Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) with IGI since 2021 and has more than 25 years of experience as a leader in information security and technology risk. At IGI, Jim works with clients in all industries to help create a comprehensive cybersecurity plan, help mitigate their risk, and ensure business resiliency. He is trusted and respected by all his colleagues at IGI as a thought leader in cybersecurity, and someone who is always willing to step up and pitch in for the good of the team.
Previously, Jim was a Director at Wells Fargo, responsible for the Consumer Banking Divisions' Technology Risk program and Digital Banking. He also has worked at several global consulting firms in technology risk and information security, including running a national cybersecurity practice. Jim holds a Master of Science in Management from Stevens Institute of Technology and a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism & Communications from Washington & Lee University.
According to Alexander Abramov, Chair of the Wasserman Award Committee, Jim has recruited, mentored, and inspired many future ISACA leaders and has been a longtime trusted advisor to the Board. Abromov also shared some key achievements during Jim's ISACA Chapter presidency, including offering preparation classes for all certifications and broadcasting them worldwide, the production of Spring and Fall educational information security and risk conferences, and joint conferences with other professional organizations. The result was that the NY chapter was issuing more CPE credits than any chapter in the world (over 7,000 per year) and began providing free training opportunities to veterans and those who were unemployed.
Jim will be recognized at the Chapter's Annual Gala/Wasserman Award Dinner held in NYC in the spring.
