Kevin Fielder, CISO, JustEat
Innovative and dynamic security professional, with a passion for driving change by successfully engaging with all levels of the business. I am a determined individual with proven ability to provide security insights to the business, in their language. These insights have gained board buy in for delivering security strategy aligned to key business goals. This is achieved by understanding the need to drive change through people, process and technology, rather than focusing exclusively on any one area. I take pride in being a highly articulate, motivational and persuasive team-builder. I have a strategic outlook with the ability to engage with and communicate innovative and effective security solutions to all levels of management. Along with a proven ability to translate security into business language and articulate the business benefits I am also passionate about leading security innovations and making security a key part of the business proposition to its customers. Security should be made a key differentiator to drive sales and customer retention, not just a cost centre! As a final note, all posts, articles, comments etc I make on LinkedIn are personal and do not necessarily represent the opinions of my employer(s). https://twitter.com/kevin_fielder for more general musings. @kevin_fielder on Instagram for mostly fitness and daddy/daughter posts 🙂
