New York (June 25, 2021) – Michael Peters, CCISO, CEH, CHFI, ENSA, CCFE, PCFE, DSMO, EDRP, RIMS Vice President Information Technology, was part of select group of cyber security experts inducted into the International Council of E-Commerce Consultants’ (EC-Council) 2021 Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) Hall of Fame.

The EC-Council is the world’s largest cyber security technical certification body, operating in 145 countries globally. The Council has trained and certified over 200,000 information security professionals worldwide and is the owner and developer of the respected CEH, Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator (C|HFI), Certified Security Analyst (ECSA), License Penetration Testing (Practical) programs, among others.

Michael was recognized for his exceptional professional achievements, applying his education and experience to strengthen RIMS technology security measures, infrastructure, as well as his success helping the Society thwart several cyberattacks. To be eligible for the CEH Hall of Fame, Michael scored in the top of his class, above 90% on the certification exam.

“As the world becomes increasingly more reliant on technology, it could not be more important for an organization to have highly-skilled and qualified cyber experts on staff to help guide the businesses’ digital transformation,” said RIMS CEO Mary Roth. “Michael has been a critical player in RIMS digital security and infrastructure strategy, from guiding the execution of a new website, designing and protecting event and association management platforms, to ensuring that RIMS had the technology and the cyber security protocols in place to shift to a fully remote workforce. Michael is an exceptional cyber risk professional and truly deserving of this Hall of Fame honor.” 

Michael is an accomplished senior IT management executive with 20+ years of verifiable success in designing, developing and deploying high-performance, cost-efficient, flexible and fully scalable technology solutions to meet diverse and complex business challenges. He has served as the lead for RIMS Information Technology Department since 2009 and has held senior IT positions at Alvarez & Marsal, J.Crew, Aetna, Lawrence Erlbaum Associates and AXA Financial.
