Virtual Event

Speakers – 5th CISO 360 Congress – Windsor/ Hybrid 2021

Chaired by

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.


Naomi Riches MBE

In 2012, Naomi Riches achieved what most athletes only dream of; winning a Gold medal on home water at the London Paralympic Games.

At just 8 weeks old Naomi was diagnosed with Achromatopsia along with a cocktail of other eye conditions; this means that she has no colour vision and is extremely sensitive to light.

During her years in mainstream school she was severely bullied, and her differing needs were not well catered-for. All this led to Naomi under-achieving in many areas and left her with a deficit in self-confidence.

It was during Naomi’s second year of University that she was offered the chance to try out for the Great Britain Adaptive Rowing Team. She seized this opportunity and just 4 months later became a World Champion in Great Britain’s Mixed, Coxed Four.  Over the next 10 years ParaRowing developed into a full-time, Lottery-Funded Paralympic Sport, making its debut at the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing. Naomi was, in the words of her coach ‘key in the development of Para-Rowing over those 10 years’, winning 6 World Championship titles, Paralympic Bronze in Beijing and Gold in London.

Naomi’s journey was by no means easy, but she was always driven by a burning desire to prove a point; to prove that she is capable of significant achievements despite her visual impairment.

In 2016, Naomi decided to test her resilience a little further. As an athlete she had always completed in crew boats and wanted to take on a greater challenge on her own. Her goal was to row the length of the Navigable Thames in a single scull in an attempt to establish a new Guinness World Record. Naomi covered the 165 miles from Lechlade to Gravesend non-stop, in 47hours 59minutes and 54 seconds and set the Guinness World Record for the first and fastest woman to row the Navigable Thames.

Naomi retired from full time sport in 2013 and began her next chapter in business working for Thomas International. The driving force behind all she does is to empower and enable individuals, teams and organisations to realise their potential and be the best that they can be.
