We are joined by Christian Toon at InfoSec Europe 2018. Christian Toon, is the CISO at Pinsent Masons. Christian has spent the last 14 years successfully disrupting traditional approaches to information protection and management for large international organisations. From a career in end user security, moved into Big 4 Consulting to build a practice around ‘CISO for Hire’ services that involved engagements with financial and insurance services clients. Leaving PwC after nearly 3 years, joined Pinsent Masons to lead their information protection strategy across a firm of over 3200 employees around the globe.
