Certificant Spotlight

Pablo Colombres, CPP

Pablo Colombres, CPP, gradually pivoted into the security world. In 2003, he started his career in the legal department for telecommunications giant Telefónica. When the fraud team he supported was transferred into a new security division in 2007, he followed—and assumed an investigative role himself. While the transition was daunting at times, he did not back down.

“Pursuing my CPP certification was a rewarding challenge, helping me to view the whole picture through the lens of standardized knowledge, and to start talking the same language as the security world.”

Striving for Higher Standards

The cannabis industry is full of contradictions. Although more than half of the United States has legalized—and therefore legitimized—some form of cannabis commerce and usage, it remains illegal under federal law. The drug's stringent controlled substance label prevents it from being researched, and banks take a risk if they accept money from cannabis companies. The industry's strict state-by-state regulations mix policy, political influence, and borrowed best practices to create detailed rules that vary vastly by location and can be difficult to interpret and implement, and a lack of overarching guidance can leave organizations vulnerable.
