Media often need spokespeople who can speak with authority on various areas of cyber security and risk. This page is a compilation of people who are widely respected in the security industry as genuine thought leaders. These people are mainly in the cyber security industry, but also from closely related industries.
Note: CISO Lens is not a speakers bureau, so if you would like to approach any of these experts you should do so through their preferred contact mechanism, included below. This list is not exhaustive, and is not ranked in any particular order. They are all authorised to speak to the media and present at conferences. Naturally, there will be limits to what the CISOs can share about their own organisations.
Also note that there are a wide range of perspectives among the people on this short list. And, everyone listed here wants to help make the internet a safer place.
Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs)
Note; these CISOs will be able to speak to issues of the wider industry, but will probably not answer questions about specifics organisations, theirs or others.
They are all experts in what organisations of all sizes need to be thinking about with cyber risk, and can offer practical advice to home users.
