Reconsidering the cyber threat landscape: lessons learned from the CISOs office panel

10:30 - 11:30

  • Pandemic and the scope for cyber risk: gleaning insight from a dispersed work force
  • How has crisis impacted the way we work with third parties? 
  • How has sophistication influenced cyber risk?
Matthew J., Lang

CISM, CISA, Chief information security officer

SECU

Information Security Leadership that enables the business, while reducing security risks for the organization, and raising the security posture for the enterprise.

My vision for every organization is to improve their security posture. I can achieve this by implementing the right tools with the right people at the right time. Pair my experience as an executive of Information Security with a strategic mindset, a tactical skillset, as well as team member cooperation, and I can help ensure the security of SECU.

To better focus on information security and, consistently, deliver cost effective results, we will incorporate risk-based decision making with our aligned technology initiatives and business goals.

Some recent successes:

  • Cost saving initiative at Bank of America saw a return on investments of $55 (mil) annualized by reducing redundant insecure external data exchanges with a secure data exchange- an excellent example of saving money while improving the security posture in just 5 months.
  • Focusing on budgeting, I was able to reduce duplicate security systems at Belk, saving an annualized $1.5 (mil) in IT spending for their Information Security department with zero negative impact to security readiness or risk.  My ability to train, even at the Board of Directors level, allowed for executives to learn the complexity of Information Security while responding to a mock security incident.

I believe in mentoring and coaching individuals to push themselves out of their comfort zone, so they can perform at their highest level.  As a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer after 22 years, I continue to motivate and encourage employees to buy into the corporate vision and standards I expect the department to follow.

My career has included leadership roles at large and small companies.  I received my Bachelor of Science in Accounting from East Carolina University and am also a Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) and Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA).  I am a founding member of the CISO Executive Network in Charlotte, NC and have recently completed the CISO Academy training with the FBI in Quantico, Virginia.

James Routledge

Founds and chief executive officer

Sanctus

I started my first business during my 2nd year of University and never went back.

In the process of building the business, raising investment and dealing with it's failure, I burned out. I was crippled with anxiety and began having panic attacks. I'd pushed myself to the limit for 3 years working on something I wasn't truly passionate about and lived my life as someone else in my quest for "success".

Mental health became important to me as I started to feel all the feelings I'd bottled up for years. I knew nothing about mental health, I was frightened and felt ashamed. Yet I knew it didn't have to be this way.

I set up Sanctus to create the brand that I wish had existed for me and for millions of others. A brand that redefines mental health as a whole and creates real human connection. We do this through coaching in the workplace, talks, trainings, storytelling and creating an environment for people to openly talk about mental health.

Our mission is to put the world's first mental health gym's on the high street and inspire people to work on their mental health proactively, like we do with physical health. Right now we partner with global brands, startups and innovative businesses to take the mental health gym to the workplace. In less than 3 years we've sustainably grown Sanctus in the workplace to positively impact tens of thousands of individuals through 1:1 Sanctus Coaching.
