Subjects: cybersecurity, corporate security, financial crime and corporate governance.  Languages: Speaks Spanish fluently and French (sadly now quite rusty).

Adaptable to fast-moving landscapes and a ‘connector’, we believe in the power of bringing the right people together from around the world to facilitate positive change.  We approach the research and development of programmes as a member of the stakeholder communities that we serve. We collaborate with speakers, clients, partners and teams, and our mission is that people leave each event feeling inspired and connected to the cyber, security, risk, resilience community and leave with an array of new professional friends!

Clive Room
Clive has worked as a marketeer within cybersecurity since 2000. As the Marketing Manager at Portcullis Computer Security he organised all their bespoke events from seminars to hospitality events like the famous Portcullis Arms during Infosec. He was also responsible for their involvement with conferences and exhibitions all over Europe. His experience in promoting and presenting at cyber security events is matched by his passion for helping people understand the critical importance of mitigating the risks and protecting themselves and their organisations from cybercrime. He believes that in terms of reputational damage and operational costs, security breaches should be a key concern of everyone from the ground floor worker up to board and director level. 
Clive was Chairman of The White Hat Committee, the charity for the information security industry, which raises money for ChildLine and Barnardo’s throughout the year. This January’s White Hat Ball was the most successful to date raising over two hundred thousand pounds and the next White Hat Car Rally is in September. Clive is proud to be a part of the dynamic team bringing CISO 360 Congress to the marketplace as a game changer in cybersecurity events.
