Aurobindo Sundaram, CIPP/US


RELX Group

As VP of Security for LexisNexis, Aurobindo Sundaram is responsible for the creation and maintenance of the company's information security control framework and its implementation across the company. He develops the company's security strategies; implements, administers and maintains security policies and technologies required to protect the enterprise.


Prior to joining LexisNexis, Mr. Sundaram spent 6+ years at Schlumberger, a leading oilfield services corporation, where he helped initiate their Information Security program, resulting in the team growing by a factor 4 during his tenure there. In addition, during his tenure, for the first time, company (and board reported) objectives were set for information security across the 50,000+ strong organization.


Mr. Sundaram's vision and thought leadership have led to several published papers in the security field, and ChoicePoint's (now a LexisNexis company) Information Security program was recognized by many, including Gartner, to be a role model for other companies. Mr. Sundaram was the Vice President of the Metro Atlanta ISSA Chapter in 2007, is the Executive Sponsor of the 2007/2008 Habitat for Humanity program for the company, and regularly speaks to graduating IT professionals on information security.


Mr. Sundaram holds an MS from Purdue University (where he was one of the first students in the COAST [now CERIAS] information security research laboratory working under Eugene Spafford), and received an MBA from the Goizueta School of Business at Emory University. He also holds several information security certifications, including the CISSP, CIPP, CISA, and CISM.
