“Shadow-IT” in the Cloud. Should we lead the push-back against non-vetted tools, apps and services?

In this episode of teissTalk we discussed:

  • Shared responsibility model – is it our usage that brings the greatest risk? What strategies can we follow to avoid the chaos of undefined responsibilities between us and our providers?
  • What’s the best way of developing a consistent organisation view of cloud risks to make well-informed decisions about vendors and services?
  • Legal, compliance and data protection – How we are asked to protect data might not be how our users actually protect data.

Marc Avery

Chief Information Security Officer & Founder
Cyber Chain Alliance

Executive pragmatist operating within Critical National Infrastructure Technology and Cyber Security. Keen to offer advice and discuss challenges on how to embed security within large transformations of technology, business and culture.

I am highly experienced and capable of delivering effective security into large, complex and critical infrastructure programmes. I have established high performing cyber security functions and security management systems from first-principles and provided security assurance for some of the most critical and sensitive systems within the UK.

I believe in the need to simplify the complex to ensure that organisations operate efficiently and securely. I lead by example and build trust by being open and honest, listening to other people’s diverse needs and opinions, communicating clearly and acting with appropriate measure.

I am technically astute and have a breadth of knowledge across all aspects of security including technical architecture, product strategy and selection, information assurance, strategy and operating model development, supply chain management, security culture, maturity improvement, risk management and security testing.

I am motivated by a good challenge and always on the lookout for more effective and efficient ways of overcoming them!
