Damian Luna, manager of the UCOP Cyber Risk Assessment Unit

UC Tech News recently profiled Damian Luna, who joined UCOP as manager of the Cyber Risk Assessment Unit in December 2023.

The Cyber Risk Assessment Unit is a new centralized division within the Cyber-Risk Coordination Center (C3) that focuses on UC location risk assessments and supplier risk assessments. The team will establish a repeatable risk methodology, reduce redundancies in current processes and improve executive visibility. An added benefit is sharing risk-assessment information throughout the system to make more informed investment decisions.

With more than 19 years of experience in the technology industry, Luna has spent the past 12 specializing in cyber risk governance and compliance. A certified information security professional, he most recently led a consulting services team at a tech startup, where he helped chief information security officers from the health care, finance, high-tech and telecom industries effectively manage their cyber-risk programs.

“I’m very excited to build a new team and help UC achieve new levels of collaboration than ever before,” Damian said. “Risk is the shared language between senior leadership, IT, and information security. My team’s goal will be to offer a service that helps establish that language at all UC locations.”
