Making his mark as one of the youngest IT leaders in Omnicom Group back in 2004, Goher has a huge passion for Technology,Information and Cyber Security with a drive not just do things well but in aninnovative and better way.
Having had to deal with more comprehensive but secure and controlled structures in Citibank and Merrill Corporation to more agile environments within Omnicom group and Photobox Group Security, it’s taking and combining the best of both.
At L&Q, the goal is to bring information and cyber security to the forefront to meet the demands and ambitions of the organisation in an agile and future proof way. A keen diver, traveller keen to explore the world, Goher also loves play retro video games and not so secretly is a complete tech geek. Deep down, his inquisitive nature is always looking to understand the inner workings of everything that’s around and in turn, how can it be made better.
Engaging the Board on Cyber Security
Engaging the board is an ongoing challenge in cyber security for a variety of reasons: what seems like a uniquely technical issue is actually a complex business risk present across different business functions. Board members don’t necessarily have the technical knowledge to feel at ease making decisions about cyber risk, and a lack of regulatory clarity and metrics around cyber threat makes it challenging to track ROI. This session asks how we can prepare a board for a crisis, using planning processes to help shape decisions, identify areas in need of investment and gain cyber security sponsorship at the highest levels of the business.
