Nico Potgieter, PMP
VP, Information Security Officer
The confidentiality, integrity, and availability of client data is paramount at OSC. In today’s world, this requires a dynamic approach with diverse stakeholders to best prepare for, monitor and quickly respond to security events. Ultimately, my job is to lead the information risk management activities of a cross functional team.
As VP, Information Security Officer, Nico is responsible for developing, implementing, and monitoring an integrated program of policies and procedures designed to protect enterprise communications, systems, and assets from both internal and external threats. Having directed significant technology initiatives throughout his career, Nico previously oversaw the implementation of OSC’s proprietary IrisX system. Prior to OSC, Nico was Manager of Professional Services at insurance software provider Vertafore, and Senior Project Manager at ImageRight, an insurance content management system acquired by Vertafore. Nico also co-founded two venture-backed technology companies – Broadleaf Services and THINQ Learning Solutions – early in his career. He is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP), held an Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) certification, and attended the University of Washington Bothell/Vertafore Technical Leadership Development Program in Business Management and Leadership.
