About Me

Mr. Miheer Khona is the Founder and CEO of Cactus Holding Corporation. Mr. Khona has over 15 years of experience in Strategy, Transformation and Governance at the intersection of Cyber Security and Information Risk Management. When conceiving Cactus, the fundamental question that came to mind was, “how do we scale “trust” in the food system, and specifically in scaling plant-based foods?” Having built ‘trusted systems’ globally, Mr. Khona brings with him a strong analytical risk-based background in serving the needs of various clients in private and public sectors, including U.S. and International Governments. He led the efforts in developing the Financial Services domain of Internet Security Alliance’s Social Contract 3.0 publication – blending the realms of politics, economics, and cyber security viewpoints into a market-based implementation model for the current U.S. Executive Office of the President (EOP) and the Congress. Prior to founding the boutique management consulting firm, he successfully led the design and execution of a next-generation Global Operating Model for a Bank of New York Mellon’s Information Risk Management Division as the Head of Information Risk Strategy & Transformation. Prior to a career in financial services, Mr. Khona provided strategic and technical analysis of global information security programs and developed enterprise risk management frameworks for multiple clients in the commercial and public (U.S. and international governments) sectors as a management consultant.

Mr. Khona currently serves on the Economic Development Subcommittee for the Governor of Maryland’s Cyber Security Council, and is a Board Member of the School of Applied Sciences & Technology at Thomas Edison State University. Mr. Khona holds Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology from the Volgenau School of Engineering at George Mason University, and is an MBA candidate at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) and Brown University. Mr. Khona also holds the following designations: Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Security+, ISO/IEC 27001 ISMS Lead Auditor, ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Risk & Implementation Practitioner.
