Data Protection Officer

Anuar Solis Bio Page

Anuar is Altair Global’s Data Protection Officer dedicated to navigating the labyrinth of global privacy laws and regulations. This devoted father to two young daughters and avid supporter of the San Antonio Spurs brings a wealth of expertise to his role, ensuring Altair remains up-to-date and buttoned up when it comes to data protection and privacy policies, procedures, and best practices to achieve its compliance goals while keeping clients’ and customers’ data safe — which is no surprise, given his top two CliftonStrengths of Learner and Achiever.

Anuar’s educational journey includes a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance with high honors from the University of Houston, complemented by a Master of Business Administration from Northeastern University. But, given his Learner CliftonStrength paired with his fifth strength of Futuristic, of course the education doesn’t stop there. He also holds a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification and is Certified in Cybersecurity (CC), with aspirations to attain the CISSP (the world’s premier certification for security practitioners, managers, and executives alike who deal with personal data) and CIPP (the global gold standard for privacy professionals) credentials in 2024.

With Altair since 2023, Anuar leads our data protection efforts within the Technology team. His extensive privacy and cybersecurity experience ensures Altair complies with data protection laws like the EU’s GDPR, the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (DPF), and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). That may sound like a lot of acronyms and some heavy topics, but, Anuar puts it simply that “privacy is impossible without security, yet compliance is the keystone for effective security and privacy programs.”

Driven by his top five CliftonStrengths, which also include Responsibility and Input, Anuar’s strategic guidance empowers Altair to uphold the highest ethical, privacy, and security standards. When he’s not working passionately on this endeavor, you can find him on his next vacation with his wife and daughters — likely somewhere tropical, such as Florida or California, where he can soak up some sunshine.
