Cyber risk: Managing opportunistic cybercrime during uncertainty
Tuesday, August 4 | 15:00 PM BST
COVID-19 offered the perfect platform for the proliferation of cybercrime. Hackers are using the current uncertainty to send out even more phishing messages, with varying degrees of sophistication.
Security specialists have heightened concerns about cybercrime because it benefits from the perfect storm: a sudden and largely uncoordinated shift to remote working and an increased number of electronic transactions. Additionally, economic instability will have a knock on effect on criminality both online and offline.
Join this webinar to gain insight into:
- Profiting from uncertainty: how cybercriminals are taking advantage
- Examples of phishing and malware sophistication
- How do you protect remote workers?
- Educating against the myriad of cyber attacks

CISO, Head of IT & DPO
Matthew J., Lang
CISM, CISA, Chief information security officer
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.
