Thom Langford Digs Into the Notion of Risk

VIDEOS / 07.05.17 / Matt Stephenson

Security luminary Thom Langford (@ThomLangford) digs into the notion of risk and its impact on the security decisions organizations have to make.

If organizations are willing to accept and understand risk, they can put themselves in a position to learn from and benefit from those risks by removing the handcuffs from their networks.


As Chief Information Security Officer of Publicis Groupe, Thom Langford is responsible for all aspects of information security risk and compliance as well as managing the Groupe Information Security Programme. Additionally, Thom is responsible for business continuity capabilities across the Groupe’s global operations. Having successfully built security and IT programmes from the ground up, Thom brings an often opinionated and forward-thinking view of security risk, both in assessments and management, but is able to do so with humour and pragmatism (mostly).
