Orner will focus on ensuring global business continuity including responsibility for client privacy, disaster recovery and crisis management. She will also oversee CWT’s risk governance strategy while continuing to lead enterprise risk management and the global security organization.
“A key component of the CWT 3.0 strategy is building a world-class consumer-grade customer experience though digital innovation,” says Andrew Jordan, CWT’s executive vice president, chief technology officer. “Delivering the digital difference 24/7 requires the highest levels of resiliency, so potential risks must be identified and countered.
