About this webinar:

Modern CISOs and other security staff are overwhelmed by the breadth and complexity of attacks their organisations face, and the mass remote working caused by the pandemic has only exacerbated the situation. And as we begin to exit lockdown restrictions and return to the office for at least some of the time, security teams will be further challenged yet again.

Recent research shows that it takes on average 66 days to investigate a data breach. That's time security teams can ill afford. That creates stress for the individuals and teams themselves, and impacts the business, with skilled, well-paid staff essentially wasted for over two months. In this webinar we discuss the existing situation and its solutions, with automation one of the most promising. With senior end users on the panel to give their view, we'll also discuss what else security teams could be doing with the time they get back, including self-help techniques like mindfulness.

Simon Langley

Chief Information Security Officer – Covea Insurance

View Bio

I joined Covéa in January 2020 so it won't be long before more than half my Covéa career has been working from home. In information security it's our job to help Covéa to do what it thinks is necessary but to do it securely, not to stop people doing things.

I originally qualified as a chartered accountant, then I spent twenty years as an information security and risk consultant running both PwC's and KPMG's Northern information security functions (not at the same time). Before joining Covéa I was CISO at Morrisons for 5 years seeing some interesting changes and one of the most significant court cases relating to the misuse of personal information in the last ten years.

My interests largely centre around making things, I love music (particularly Bach and Baroque music) but I also like playing around with microcontrollers and woodworking. I even like making virtual things and I play Minecraft when I have nothing better to do. I am a keen walker and spend a lot of time on the beautiful moors around where I live.
