Event description

Description

Cybersecurity has never been as imperative as it is today. No organization globally is immune to attack. Organizations will be judged not only on their ability to prevent but to detect and respond. It is more critical than ever to have a well-established information security program that guides investment of finite resources and helps ensure risk is mitigated to an acceptable level. To assist organizations in understanding where to invest these finite resources, the Province of British Columbia has developed a set of Defensible Security for Public Sector Organizations. The Province is committed to “raising the water level” of security in BC and is helping organizations understand how to go about tackling this challenging problem.

Speaker background:

Gary Perkins is the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) for the Government of British Columbia. As the Executive Director of the Information Security Branch, he is responsible for providing cybersecurity services in support of the province. He has over 20 years’ experience in information technology, risk management, and cybersecurity. Prior to joining the BC Government, he worked in the private sector as chief of staff for security at TELUS and, earlier in his career, led teams responsible for incident response, operations, delivery, and architecture for both corporate and managed security services customers. A certified information systems security professional (CISSP) since 2004, Perkins also holds an MBA from Simon Fraser University’s Management of Technology program.

What the audience should expect:
- Open honest sharing of information
- Dynamic, interesting, and knowledgeable speaker
