 The Continuous Need for Dynamic and Intelligence-led Cyber Controls Testing
Peter Williamson CEO, SecureCloud+

There are many cyber risk and controls frameworks to choose from such as NIST and ISF. No one can argue with the common sense approach of choosing one and implementing it. But many companies still apply controls with little reference to the risks they are designed to mitigate. Therein lies a danger as the hazards that trigger cyber risk events continue to grow, change and evolve.

About the speaker

Peter began his career in computers and communications in 1979 after leaving the Royal Navy. He has a reputation for fast and successful delivery of secure managed ICT services at all Government Security Classification tiers in the UK and military operations overseas. He has assembled a team at SecureCloud+ that includes some of the leading technologists and service delivery practitioners of secure managed services, supported by a trusted ecosystem of technology and service delivery partners.

  • Responsible for securing multi-million pounds enduring managed service contracts for secure systems across public sector including the MOD, Foreign and Commonwealth Officeand the British Council.
  • Delivered the service management upgrade to the CORTEZ Base ISTAR network which was essential for military force protection across 26 sites in Southern Afghanistan between 2010 – 2014.
  • Peter has won contracts for secure email services, remote access, transition from X400 to Active Directory and information security and IDAM into the MOD since 1998.

AFCEA West - Jan 2019 - Maersk - Collateral victims of a state-sponsored Cyber Weapon: Implementing the Lessons from a Cyber Attack - Andy Powell CISO, A.P. Møller - Mærsk A/S @ Brickhampton Golf Club | England | United Kingdom

Maersk – Collateral victims of a state-sponsored Cyber Weapon:
Implementing the Lessons from a Cyber Attack
Andy Powell – CISO, A.P. Møller – Mærsk A/S

In June 2017, Maersk became one of the most high-profile collateral victims of a state- sponsored Cyber Weapon – NotPetya.

The Talk will explain the real and rapid business and cost impact this had, and the lessons that were rapidly identified and how they are now being implemented. It will pose some fundamental questions about how industry and others should shape our approach in the era of increasing state escalation of cyber weaponry.

About the Speaker

Andy spent 28 years in the RAF including time as CIO/CISO for the RAF and later Joint Operations before his last tour heading up Cyber Defence Operations for the MoD.

Since leaving the RAF 5 years ago, he has headed up the UK Cybersecurity business for first CSC and then Capgemini before joining Maersk as CISO in May 2018.

During his RAF career he spent 2 years on exchange with the USAF in the Pentagon where he first became associated with AFCEA and has maintained strong contacts ever since.
