Cristobal Chapital Tirado
Cristobal Chapital Tirado was born on 5 August 1968 in Tuxtla Gutierrez (Chiapas, Mexico). He obtained his degree in Computer Systems from the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education in May 1995, as well as an MsC in Information Technology Management from the same institution.
His experience is backed by 21 years working at NIC Mexico, collaborating in support of the Mexican Internet community.
He has served in different positions within this organization, and has been in charge of managing .mx domains and IP address assignments. He played a major role in the growth of the organization, with a technical and business approach that translated into benefits for Internet development in Mexico.
Highlights of his career include having implemented the first domain name distributor program in the country, as well as the process for formalizing the relationships with members in Mexico when management transitioned from ARIN to LACNIC.
He is a member of ISOC and the ISOC Mexico Chapter since 1997 and holds several certifications such as ISO 9001 Internal Quality Systems Auditor, Program Manager, Project Manager, and others.
He is currently responsible for strategic planning, project management, risk management, quality management (processes), personal data protection, as well as for the Innovation and Research Lab, which has produced extremely important projects such as Jool (NAT64 and SIIT) and Reddog (RDAP) designed to support basic Internet architecture and contribute to regional development.
I believe LACNIC will benefit considerably from the presence of a person with risk analysis and assessment as well as strategic planning capabilities such as Cristobal on the Board, a person who also has extensive knowledge of Internet development in Mexico and the region which he obtained through direct participation.
