Could you outline your career so far?

I have been in the IAM space for over 11 years. I started from shop floor doing Access Control right through to re-writing processes and policies, to working alongside experts with existing and new applications within businesses.

What mistakes are businesses continuing to make regarding their security posture, and in terms of preparedness in the event of a security incident?

My perspective, from what I have witnessed, is that lack of investments exist in the following areas:

  • Expertise
  • Applications
  • Security Tools

These 3 things are overlooked and can, at times be the cause of a security incident.

How can “tabletop exercises” help organisations to prepare for and respond to cyberattacks?

Tabletop exercises can provide education, possible solutions and valuable lessons to people to strengthen their security postures and build a better security foundation for their organisations.


Don’t miss Amardeep Ginday exploring these issues in depth at the PrivSec & GRC Connect London session:

Ransomware Tabletop Exercises: Steps to Improve your Company’s Responsiveness.

Security incidents are inevitable. Mistakes and/or a lack of preparation in the response can have serious repercussions. Security and risk management leaders with business continuity management responsibility can prepare for and respond to the challenges of a targeted cyberattack by planning “tabletop exercises”, where a cyberattack is simulated.

Our cyber experts will take you through a step-by-step planning of one of these exercises, that you can bring into your workplace tomorrow.

Also on the panel:

  • Gary Brown, Chief Privacy Officer, Legal & Compliance, Westinghouse (Panel Moderator)
  • Lesley Holmes, Data Protection Officer, MHR
