Marcus Alldrick, CISO Luminary
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.

Clive Room began his professional career in 1970 as the original Heinz Baked Beans boy, in an advert that ran for twelve years! The repeat fees kept Clive in a decent school and his Mother in gin until the mid-80s!
After more than 20 years of acting, when the call from Hollywood failed to come, Clive became a Blue Badge Tour Guide, performing all over the UK to a captive audience of fifty Americans a day on a luxury coach with the doors locked. After winning Guide of the Year in 1996, he felt his touring career could get no better, so he made his first foray into the Information Security industry for Portcullis Computer Security, where he was hired (by the hour) as eye candy for their stand at Infosec. He then became Portcullis’ Marketing Manager to the Stars until their acquisition in 2016. At this point he took a short break to find himself, with the aid of a loin cloth and an Indian mystic, up an Airbnb treehouse in the foothills of the Himalayas. There are no known photographs from this period.
Clive joined Pulse from its inception in January 2017 as their Master of Ceremonies and chief bottle washer. This year he is celebrating his 21st year in the industry and says “ as a young man, with most of my life ahead of me, I can not imagine a better job than the one I have now at Pulse Conferences”.

Enquire about becoming a speaker
We are always looking for:
- keynote insights or cutting-edge ‘live’ demos
- innovative best practice corporate case studies
- fresh ideas from future-facing persons and companies
- actionable takeaways
- the world’s smartest thinkers and doers in security, resilience, cyber, privacy, resilience, risk, governance, compliance – BUSINESS AND TECHNOLOGY!
Speaker Rules of Thumb when it comes to programming and presenting at virtual events!
- A virtual presentation should be half the length of a physical one. Focus on the physical presence of you as a speaker; that’s the experience people are not getting when they work from home!
- Use PowerPoint sparingly, if at all. It is tough to read slides when they are a picture within a picture. People would much rather see your FACE! Place presentation prompts at the same level as your camera!
- Try to turn a presentation into an interview or a fireside chat. This will increase authenticity and viewer-appeal. TV chat shows are popular for a reason. Pulse will confirm experienced anchors and chairpersons with nerves of steel. People who can listen to the Delegates, adjust their questioning on the fly and manage to keep the audience engaged when things go wrong!
- Give news. Hold back important announcements to specific points i your session, and only release that news on other channels after the broadcast!
- Leave plenty of time for questions. Pulse will gather Question Panels for a few Speakers at a time so stay around after your session!
- Create a rhythm to your presentation. Create a flow between use of slides (if needed) or between yourself and fellow speakers if you are doing a joint session.
- Content rule of thumb – “say what you can’t show, show what you can’t say”. Use talking heads about the vision but employ videos or a slide for internal cases studies to demonstrate the latest innovation in your office or factory!
We welcome your input into shaping the agenda!
Our programmes are highly researched and “led by, for and with” C-Level practitioners who do the job day in and day out. Programmes are structured and organic to ensure that we remain agile to meet the very latest requirements!
