Meet Josh Goldberg
Kuma’s Director, Security & Compliance
As part of the Kuma team, Josh oversees audit certifications and helps organizations with evidence needs like policy development and implementation. He also assists clients in creating compliant and secure cloud environments. Josh found his way to compliance with previous experience as a Cloud Network Engineer where he gained fluency in PCI/HIPAA/HITRUST/SOC2 Audits and Certifications. His advice for organizations who decide to go forward with certifications? Be patient. It’s a long process, but if done right, you can mature your organization’s security and privacy programs along the way.
Originally from Miami, Josh now lives in Raleigh, North Carolina. At an early age, Josh had a passion for computers and was determined to find a career in IT. His favorite number is 2; back in the day when pagers were the thing, 2 became his “beeper code” ID for friends. When he’s not guiding Kuma clients away from the pitfalls of compliance certifications, he spends time with his wife, 10-year old daughter and 4-year old son, who he attributes to where he gets his inspiration. He wants to give them all they deserve and more. His favorite family tradition is opening all the gifts on Christmas Eve and if he could pick a superpower it would be super speed to clean up after his kids, pets, and all that wrapping paper at lightning speeds! When asked who he’d most like to swap places with for a day, he points to one of his three cats, especially pampered members of the family who sleep 23 hours a day. He is currently watching The Haunting of Hill House and American Horror Story on Netflix and the last book he read was a Steve Jobs biography. His favorite travel spot is St. Lucia and the best concert he’s ever been to was Ed Sheeran. Last, when asked to share with us his favorite quote, Josh shared, “Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.” Well said, Josh! Connect with Josh directly.
