Virtual Event

Speakers Virtual CISO 360 Nordics 

Chaired by

Marcus Alldrick, CISO Luminary

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.  Progressing from programming 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 provides pro bono advisory and volunteering services and is a guest lecturer at the University of Portsmouth.
