Richard Starnes

Chief Cybersecurity Strategist , Capgemini

At Capgemini, my position is as the Chief Security Strategist, thought leader and trusted source, working closely with stakeholders to provide an information security management program appropriate to the risk appetite and needs of the business.

Also, as a Delivery CISO, I manage the strategic and operational cybersecurity of one of our largest Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) clients. I have twenty plus years of experience as an information security professional, serving in executive and senior management positions, in the US and the UK.

My responsibilities have included the development and implementation of global information systems security management programs aligned with ISO 27001, and NIST 800 series, among others. I hold a Master of Science in Information Security from Royal Holloway, University of London and was a senior instructor for the (ISC)² CISSP CBK seminar.

"No trophy shelf is complete without an SC Award. That is why, every year, vendors and professionals alike come together in London to celebrate the best of the best at the SC Awards. The judges panel is populated by well known industry practitioners and executives, who view the products from both a strategic and operational view, encompassing the whole lifecycle. This makes an SC award a powerful statement, not only about the capabilities of the product, but about the company itself."
