CIO, formerly at Abellio, Northumbrian Water Group and Drax Group
"I think it’s important that we strike a balance; yes it’s critical that we prevent data theft and cyber crime. As someone who has experience managing critical national infrastructure, I know something about the threat. However, I am also used to being rewarded as a board member for value creation and I wonder why some times information security cannot make life easier for colleagues.
The role of the CISO is critical and we are seeing them more and more in front of boards where there should be more focus on the simplicity of the solution than the risk.
I am looking forward to meeting CISOs who are passionate about their field and also their business."
