Marcus Alldrick Digital Risk Management, Security and Compliance Advisor
Born at a very early age and growing up in a culture where cyber was a prefix for anything automated, menacing and malevolent (how history has a tendency of repeating itself), Marcus entered the world of Data Processing as it was known back then after graduating from university. Lured by the flashing console lights (it was also the disco era), the whirl of the magnetic tape and the click clack of the keypunch machine (TSO was still a dream), Marcus became a COBOL programmer, becoming prolific in Michael Jackson’s structured programming methodology (who would have known what future lay ahead for Michael).
Having moved into analysis and then data architecture Marcus became the first devolved Information Risk and Security Manager for Barclaycard. After seven years in that role he moved banks and became Head of Information Security for Abbey National plc, now Santander UK. After six years at Abbey and a move into consulting for a large UK utilities company Marcus joined KPMG as a Principal Advisor. Eighteen months later he joined Lloyd’s of London as its CISO and subsequently became its Head of Digital Risk Management and Compliance, also embracing responsibility for data protection and privacy, during his 10 years tenure there.
Having worked in IT for over 40 years, specialising in information risk, protection, security and compliance for the latter 27 years or so, Marcus decided to leave full-time corporate life and move to the South Coast of England in mid-2017, ever the seafaring Fisherman’s Friend. As well as being a proud member of the Pulse Conferences family, Marcus now undertakes advisory engagements, provides pro bono consulting and volunteering services and sits on the Cymmetria Advisory Board as Chief Risk Officer.
