Greg Van Der Gaast, Head of Cyber Security, University of Salford
Greg has over two decades of technical and management experience in Information Security. Starting as one of the most notorious hackers of the late 1990’s, he is a frequent speaker about bringing visibility, care, and accountability to the profession. He is an expert in building efficient organisations by enabling leadership, addressing root causes, and harnessing human potential.
He is currently the Head of Information Security at the University of Salford in addition to his own consultancy, CMCG, which helps others deliver effective and accountable information assurance.
His consultancy develops information security programmes and provides interim and virtual CISO services to a number of organisations including several household names.
Greg speaks at dozens of InfoSec, governance, data protection, and CIO events every year, with a focus on leadership and accountability. With a long list of case studies where he was able to quickly spot deficiencies that had gone unnoticed for years, he is highly sought after as an advisor on making information security organisations be more transparent, deliver more, and cost less.
Feedback from the organisers of the 2019 UK Enterprise Security and Risk Management conference where Greg gave the opening keynote: “This week, [we] started inviting experts for [next year’s] ESRM event, and most of them came to last week’s conference. Many of them said: we want to see more talks like the one Greg delivered. And that they hoped to be up to that standard you set for next year.”
