In terms of payments, privacy and third-party relationships, U.S. security leaders have much to learn from - and share with - their peers in the U.K. and elsewhere in the world.
This is the perspective of Adrian Davis, a senior research consultant with the UK-based Information Security Forum.
In an exclusive interview, Davis discusses:
Davis heads the Leadership and Management group within the Research and Services Team of the Information Security Forum, responsible for delivering client-facing projects. His team covers topics such as the role and effectiveness of information security; the role and skills of information security professionals from junior analyst to the Chief Information Security Officer and Chief Security Officer; managing and assessing information security in third parties; assessing the possible near-term threats to organizations; and cloud computing.
His prior experience includes international project management, the creation and implementation of project and program offices, risk management and strategy formulation.
Davis has chaired the Marcus Evans SecurIT event for the last two years (2008 and 2009) and is a regular speaker at major conferences, including RSA and RSA Europe.
