Innovation Roundtable

January 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us for the Q1 Innovation Roundtable, featuring Jim Sherlock, Director of Information Security and Technology Implementation at Pearson.

Jim will be discussing the state of the Educational Technology sector and how COVID-19 has accelerated innovation as schools and students were forced to rapidly move to remote instruction.  We’ll also look at some of the initiatives the state of Iowa is leading to encourage innovation and investment in EdTech right here in our home state.

An Iowa native and University of Iowa graduate, Jim began his career in Washington DC supporting the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) before returning to Iowa to work for Pearson as a Level II Technical Engineer.

Jim was instrumental in building out Pearson’s Operations teams and led the Application Security and Performance Optimization groups at Pearson through 2015.  In his current role, Jim oversees the Assessments Information Security Office at Pearson with responsibilities over Security Operations in AWS, it’s Application Security and Vulnerability Management program, and all Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) work for Pearson’s School and Clinical Assessments divisions.

The Innovation Roundtable is open to all member company employees who are passionate about the Iowa tech industry and innovation advancements in our state.
