Maqsood Ahmed to Lead Think Tank Discussion at CISO UK Summit

Group Head of Information Security at Abellio to Speak on “Avoiding ERM for the Sake of ERM”

We are pleased to announce Maqsood Ahmed as a Think Tank discussion leader for the CISO UK Summit on March 2nd, 2017. The event will take place in London, UK.

Maqsood Ahmed is the Group Head of Information Security at Abellio where he is responsible for all aspects of Information Security strategy. He is a champion of Cyber Security with in-depth knowledge on technology and business domains. He has deep technical experience, which helped in driving and managing organization-wide information security programs aligned with business strategies.

Utilizing his experience in ISO 27001/27002 (International Standard for Cyber/Information Security) he successfully implemented the framework in live and complicated environments. His practical expertise includes Cyber Security, Information Security, IT Management, Business Continuity, ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) Framework, and COBIT (IT Governance) in industries such as Finance, Law Enforcement and Professional Services.

Takeaways will include:

  • ERM is a way of life, not a one-time effort and the only way to value is to come to that realization early
  • To be successful, an ERM deployment must be sponsored from the top and have the involvement of every level and every department
  • Even though ERM initiatives are all-encompassing it’s best to start small; trying to boil the ocean is the surest way to failure and loss of good will and buy-in
