Richard Jones

Company: Securelink

Job Title: Group Chief Information Security Officer (CISO)

Richard Jones

Previously the CISO for a large online retailer with revenues approaching £1B, Richard is familiar with the cybersecurity capabilities required to meet the challenges facing digital first organisations. Having worked in IT for much of his career, he has over twenty years of hands on experience to rely upon.
Richard was lucky enough to remember a period when IT was merely a recreational activity. A keen 1980’s gamer and C64 programmer, Richard’s IT hobby quickly became a career after short but promising accountancy debut. On the road to his Information & Cyber Security career, Richard got the opportunity to work in various IT Operational roles; starting with desktop and server infrastructure and many years later, leading the network security.
Richard has also been fortunate enough to have seen first-hand how our personal and professional reliance on technology has dramatically changed. Only ten years ago, an IT department controlled what a user had access to and how they connected; now the user demands access to applications of their choosing at a time they specify and on a device and platform they mandate.
The external perception of information security has also changed dramatically, establishing itself as a key business function; an important business unit adding strategic value - historically seen only as the expensive retrospective checkbox!
Now the Group CISO for SecureLink, Richard has the responsibility for directing internal Information Security & Compliance across both European and emerging markets.
