  • There is no cost to attend for in-house practitioners – CISOs, CPOs, CDOs, Heads of Data, Privacy, Architecture, Networks, Applications…
  • Led ‘by with and for’ CISOs, CIOs and senior practitioners
  • This is a live (not pre-recorded) interactive fireside chat broadcast
  • You can chat, ask and upvote questions and participate in polls but you will not be visible – unless you volunteer to ‘spotlight’ to share insights on the digital stage! 

You are invited to attend this very special live digital fireside chat broadcast: CISO DLP 360, kindly sponsored by Zivver.  Hosted on Tuesday 9 March 2021 at 14:00-15:30 GMT, our panel of CISOs and CIOs will share practical strategies and tactics that are working for them on the theme of data leakage prevention and securing communications.  The agenda and panel is designed for CISOs, DPOs, CIOs and directors of ICT, architecture, networks, privacy – mainly from across financial services and the public sector. 

Sponsored by Zivver and hosted by Pulse Conferences, this is a moderated live broadcast event as opposed to a pre-recorded webinar. Delegates are not visible on screen but we encourage your participation via the Chat, Q&A and Polls. You are also very welcome to ‘spotlight’ onto the virtual stage to share an insight or to ask a question.

Topics for discussion include:

    • How can we improve the way we manage digital communication amidst the backdrop of accelerated change?
    • What are we doing about email data protection and making video calls secure?
    • Effective data management tips for storing, analysing, retrieving your intelligence data
    • Proven ways to mitigate reputational risk through data loss prevention
    • What is the optimal balance between usability and security when it comes to data protection?
    • What are the impacts of digital communication on compliance and data protection and in information security strategic planning?
    • Data residency – understanding where data is and use of non-EEA service providers in a post-Schrems II world
    • How can we minimise data leaks more effectively?

We look forward to seeing you on 9 March for what promises to be an educational, memorable – as well as entertaining – live broadcast with peers!

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. 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.

Panel Speakers

Rick Goud, CIO, ZIVVER

Before co-founding ZIVVER, Rick Goud spent six years as a healthcare consultant for Gupta Strategists. He had studied Medical Information Science at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and Care Management at Erasmus University. Additionally, he holds a PhD in Medicine from the UvA on the development, implementation and evaluation of healthcare support systems.

Throughout his studies, Rick worked as a programmer. The idea to launch his own company was conceived during Rick’s career as a strategy consultant. As a health-industry consultant, he noticed that a wide range of sensitive data was being frequently handled within organizations; this included patient information, company performance, and legal documents. Many of his clients had questions about data security and how data was being re-used, etc. He realised that there was a strong need for a secure communication solution to safeguard and manage sensitive data (including for GDPR compliance), and shortly afterwards, ZIVVER was born.
