Tessian Human Layer Security Summit: Meet the Speakers

  • 07 February 2020

On March 5, Tessian will host the first Human Layer Security Summit in London.

We’ll be welcoming 10 speakers with diverse backgrounds to the stage as we take a deep dive into what exactly people-centric security means.

On the day, attendees can expect thought-provoking presentations by leaders from renowned institutions, a panel discussion about Human Layer Security featuring some of Tessian’s customers, and an analysis of emerging social engineering threats from an ethical hacker.

Keynote Speakers

Mark Logsdon, Head of Governance and Assurance

Prudential

Mark – who has held senior security positions at top-tier financial service companies for over a decade – will be highlighting the challenges and opportunities associated with creating and maintaining a positive security culture within an organization. Attendees can expect a multi-faceted presentation that covers how cybersecurity can and should enable business objectives, the value in creating a proactive security environment, and the importance of collaboration across departments for cybersecurity advocacy.

Tanja Podinic, Assistant General Counsel 

Dentons

Working at the intersection of tech and legal, Tanja is in a unique position to highlight the implications the digital transformation has had on risk for businesses. She’s particularly interested in how innovations in technology can help mitigate the risks around people. Now, with Dentons having implemented Tessian’s solutions – Tessian Guardian and Tessian Enforcer – she’ll also be joining the panel session to discuss how machine learning has helped her organization prevent misdirected emails and data exfiltration on email.

Jamie Travis, Head of Information Security

Herbert Smith Freehills

With a great deal of experience in leading large-scale security improvement projects, Jamie has a strong interest in understanding how risk management and human behavior go hand-in-hand. This requires that he not only create strong security policies, but also that he fosters strong internal and external relationships. He now uses Tessian to mitigate risk associated with human error and people-centric security is a key focus for 2020.

Mark Parr, Global Director of Information Technology

HFW

After a 27-year military career delivering command and control networks and communications and information systems, Mark moved into the financial sector to focus on people operations within cybersecurity. Currently heading up Information Technology at a global law firm, he’s using his expertise in Risk Management and Information Assurance alongside Tessian to navigate challenges associated with human error.

Ethical Hacker

Glyn Wintle, CEO & Founder 

Tradecraft 

Having started his career as a penetration tester, Glyn has incredible, hands-on experience in helping organizations defend themselves against ever-evolving threats. He’ll detail how hackers combine psychology and technical know-how to create highly targeted (and highly effective) phishing attacks and other forms of social engineering.
