Formerly Chief Information Security Officer of Publicis Groupe, Thom was responsible for all aspects of information security risk and compliance as well as managing the Groupe Information Security Programme. Additionally the role was responsible for business continuity capabilities across the Groupe’s global operations.
Having successfully built security and IT programmes from the ground up Thom brings an often opinionated and forward thinking view of security risk, both in assessments and management, but is able to do so with humour and pragmatism (mostly). An international public speaker and award winning security blogger, Thom contributes to a number of industry blogs and publications.
Thom is also the sole founder of Host Unknown, a loose collective of three InfoSec luminaries combined to make security education and infotainment films. Thom can be found online at both thomlangford.com and @thomlangford on Twitter.
