Lee Barney, Head of Information Security, Mishcon de Reya

Lee Barney is a passionate believer in using Security as a business enabler; he does this through challenging the preconceptions of the industry and by changing the mind set of those who work in Security to be more pragmatic.  Having worked in Defence, Consulting, Finance and now Retail, Lee has a breadth of knowledge about what works well and what doesn’t work at all. Lee advocates a healthy relationship with the Chiefs of an organisation pointing out that our industry is built on Executive buy in not scare mongering. Lee focuses on the simplification of security in business; believing that all security should be clearly understood by all levels of the business. Lee does this by removing complexity and injecting practical, pragmatic security advice. Prior to his current position, Lee has held Head of Information Security roles at Condé Nast, Debenhams, YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP, Marks and Spencer and Home Retail Group PLC.  He also served in the British Army for 7 years.

Master of Ceremonies 

Clive Room, Director, Pulse Conferences

Clive has worked as a marketeer within cybersecurity since 2000. As the Marketing Manager at Portcullis Computer Security he organised all their bespoke events from seminars to hospitality events like the famous Portcullis Arms during Infosec. He was also responsible for their involvement with conferences and exhibitions all over Europe. His experience in promoting and presenting at cyber security events is matched by his passion for helping people understand the critical importance of mitigating the risks and protecting themselves and their organisations from cybercrime. He believes that in terms of reputational damage and operational costs, security breaches should be a key concern of everyone from the ground floor worker up to board and director level. Clive was Chairman of The White Hat Committee, the charity for the information security industry, which raises money for ChildLine and Barnardo’s throughout the year. This January’s White Hat Ball was the most successful to date raising over two hundred thousand pounds and the next White Hat Car Rally is in September. Clive is proud to be a part of the dynamic team bringing CISO 360 Congress to the marketplace as a game changer in cybersecurity events.
