Last week, I had the privilege of presenting along Denise Beardon (Head of Information Security Engagement at Pinsent Masons) at the SANS European Security Awareness Summit.
Towards the end of 2017 Christian Toon (CISO at Pinsent Masons) asked if I could come onboard as an interim consultant to kick-start their information security engagement stream of work whilst he was searching for a permanent member of staff.
That permanent member of staff turned out to be Denise, we got along like a house on fire and together ran a firm wide security culture study to establish a baseline to measure behavioural change; the premise being that any security awareness, behaviour and culture programme must be built on solid foundations.
At the time I don’t believe any other law firm in the UK had developed and run anything similar.
Denise and I got talking and decided we should do a talk together and the most obvious place was the Summit, so we submitted and were accepted!
