Welcome to teissTalk – a new, and innovative, online information security talk show taking place every Tuesday and Thursday.
Each episode of teissTalk brings together some of the greatest minds in cyber security to discuss the news as well as the hottest topics facing the industry at the moment. At the heart of each episode is audience interaction, allowing you to discuss the issues with our guests and other audience members.
On our Tuesday episodes (4pm UK time – click here for your local timezone), join our host Jenny Radcliffe to discuss information security culture, including everything from how to communicate cyber security to the board to the new threats presented when your teams are working from home.
Then, every Thursday (10am UK time – click here for your local timezone), Geoff White chairs a discussion on the technical side of information security with conversations ranging from SafetyTech to supply chain risk and Artificial Intelligence.
If you can’t watch live, then every episode will also be on-demand and you will have access to the full on-demand library.
We’re looking forward to having teissTalk become an essential part of your week,
The teiss Team
To host teissTalk we have found two of the brightest minds in information security analysis. We’re pleased to introduce you to Jenny Radcliffe and Geoff White:
Jenny Radcliffe—aka “The People Hacker”—is a force to be reckoned with. She can diffuse a crisis situation, talk her way into a secure building, and spot a psychopath at a hundred paces. She has been called a mind reader and a “human lie detector,” and likened to a Jedi Knight. In reality, she is an expert in social engineering (the human element of security), negotiation, persuasion and influence, and non-verbal communication, and deception—using her skills to help clients ranging from global corporations and law enforcement organisations to poker players, politicians, and the security industry.
Investigative journalist Geoff White has covered technology for BBC News, Channel 4 News, Audible, Forbes online and many others.
An experienced public speaker, he has given keynote talks at some of the UK’s largest tech events, in addition to hosting conferences and chairing panels at venues ranging from London’s Chatham House think-tank to the Latitude music festival.
Our speakers are top experts in their fields. Expert guests in January include:
John is an established Information Technology trainer, with many years’ experience in Further and Higher Education and training in both the private and the public sector. He has been integral in the implementation of the Bank of England’s current security training programme, and is focused on the transition from passive compliance to active security. John has been a software trainer for most of his career, meaning he has a strongly honed sense of the frustrations normal people feel when faced with new technology. Training is, after all, mostly watching people make mistakes because of unfamiliarity. (And then helping them!)
Dr Mary Aiken is one of the world’s leading experts in Cyberpsychology – the study of the impact of technology on human behaviour. She is an Adjunct Professor at the Geary Institute for Public Policy University College Dublin, an Associate Professor in the Department of Law & Criminology at the University of East London, an Academic Advisor to the European Cyber Crime Centre (EC3) at Europol and member of the EC3 Academic Advisory Board.
She is a Fellow of The Royal Society of Medicine, Global Fellow at the Wilson Center, a leading US think tank, a member of the Medico-Legal Society of Ireland, an International Affiliate Member of the American Psychological Association (APA) and a Fellow of the Society for Chartered IT Professionals.
Her numerous research interests include; AI, Fintech, human factors in cybersecurity, organised cybercrime, online behavioural profiling, Internet psychology, personal cyber security and safety, online harms and youth protection online.
Sarah is an energetic and tenacious Director with over 20 years experience delivering, and advising c-suite on large scale Business & ICT Continuity, cybersecurity, data protection and resilience programmes.
Sarah has been voted one of the ‘most influential women in UK tech’ and ’top 50 most influential women in cybersecurity’ by her peers.
Glen has spent his working life involved in Policing and Security, falling into policing of a fashion joining the RAF Police in 1998 when he discovered University was expensive. During his time in the RAFP Glen carried out all aspects of policing finally settling into Counter Intelligence, responsible for carrying out Counter Espionage and Counter Terrorism duties for the RAF at home and abroad in some notable locations, some you’d want to go on holiday to but most you wouldn’t. Leaving the RAF as a regular in 2012, as part of the Strategic Defence Review of that year, he began his journey into the private sector. Firstly at Fujitsu Defence and National Security as their Head of Operational Security & Risk Management, before moving to Sopra Steria as Head of Operational Security for Government accounts. In 2016 he moved to the 3rd Sector taking up the role of Chief Security Officer at The Prince’s Trust as well as being appointed as the DPO in 2017 after opening his big mouth around GDPR. Glen moved to Save The Children International in November 2019 where he took up the role of Global CISO and Head of Data Protection for this prestigious charity.

With experience across multiple industries, and a gift for telling it how it is, Deborah celebrates the highs, revels in lessons learned and is not afraid to face the pain points of 2020/21 to date.
Deborah is an ISACA Certified Information Security Manager, Fellow of the British Computer Society and Chartered IT Professional specialising in Information Security Management; Security Governance; Risk Management; Policy and Compliance; Cyber Defence and Response; Crisis Management; Operational Effectiveness; Complex Problem Solving; Motivation and Leadership.
