Shafia Zubair



I currently manage the global Disaster Recovery Program at Morningstar; Responsible for interfacing with cross-functional technical and product teams throughout the planning process to ensure secure, resilient and recoverable applications. In my previous role as Director of Service and Product management at a Swiss bank I managed highly available networking products. This included management of enterprise scale outsourcing contracts and Third-Party Vendors including vendors with access to company’s physical assets and confidential data. I have learnt first hand the organizational perils of not having a central supplier database, data vendor can access and exhaustive governance policies.

I am passionate about Data Security and Consumer Privacy in the hyper connected world. My delivery is anchored by a strong belief that resilient, secure and available products are driven by a systems-based integrated approach to organizational strategy, application design, business operations and security policies.

Other info: I have a Master’s in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M University and an MBA in Management and Finance from Tulane University. Additionally I am also a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Project Management Professional (PMP).
