The Worlds First CISO explains why technology alone has never beaten cyber crime

"Marc is truly a leader in his field. He spearheaded the development of a Third Party Risk Framework that not only incorporates security risk but all types of risk imposed by the use of 3rd parties. He has done the same by developing a proposed industry standard for an Operational Risk framework. His thought leadership has led to sharing and further developing these frameworks with industry colleagues so that we as an Life Insurance Industry can drive the architectural design of effective ERM in these important operational risk areas. I highly recommend Marc as a collaborator, thought leader, and strategist of risk."
