    Justin Schluessler
    Data Protection Officer, Compassion International

    Justin Schluessler has served with Compassion International, a global child development non-profit, for 21 years. Starting in IT and then transitioning to Risk Management, Justin was the organization’s very first information security employee—building a comprehensive security and compliance program from the ground up. In his current role as Data Protection Officer, Justin is responsible for leading a global data protection program addressing information security and privacy risk in thirty-eight countries.

    Proving the value of protecting data for employees, beneficiaries, and donors motivates Justin every day. Proving that technologists can tell stories without inflicting fatal boredom is just an added plus.
