“You have to stick to your guns,” Mark Walmsley on life as a CISO at Freshfields LLP

Mark Walmsley is not your typical Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). He spent several years as a private investigator and recruitment consultants before moving in to law and then becoming the CISO of global law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP - a position he’s held for the past 5 years. Over several coffees, on what happened to be the one rainy day of the summer, Mark discusses why sharing information is key to securing our future, how cyber security training needs to be done in a more intelligent way and why there’s no compromise when it comes to cooking.
