When you think about cybersecurity, the image that pops into your mind is likely not an Asian Indian, muslim, entrepreneurial woman. Kavya Pearlman is changing that image. Her twenty years in computer science, cybersecurity standards, and protective frameworks has blossomed into becoming a treasure for global cybersecurity. Her list of board seats and awards is daunting, and her thirst for current solutions and ethical XR regulations is unwavering. After years at various A-list top tech companies, she founded the XR Safety Initiative two years ago. Kavya Pearlman exemplifies a female leader in technology.
Kavya joined the NSBA Leadership Council as part of her efforts to tackle the many critical issues facing small businesses, including tax reform, regulatory restraint, health care costs, and how the Affordable Care Act will impact small businesses. The NSBA Leadership Council is focused on providing valuable networking between small-business advocates from across the country while ensuring small businesses a seat at the table as Congress and regulators take up key small-business proposals.
“I am proud to have Kavya Pearlman as part of our Leadership Council,” stated NSBA President and CEO Todd McCracken. “She came to us highly recommended and I look forward to our coordinated efforts for years to come.”
