Toby ChinnToby Chinn is the London-based director of Control Risks’ cyber consulting team. In this role, he manages projects to help clients assess the cyber risk which they are facing, to evaluate their current mitigation measures and to recommend and implement measures to improve their security.

Toby comes from a traditional risk management background, focussed on the Middle East (he is an Arabic speaker). This background shapes the approach to solving clients’ cyber problems, since most cyber issues have a non-technical dimension. The project teams which he manages are therefore usually multi-disciplinary, bringing investigative skills, political knowledge and security experience to bear on cyber problems.

Toby joined Control Risks in 2003 from De La Rue, the banknote printer, giving him extensive commercial experience. Previously he spent several years in the public sector, initially in the British Army and then in the Diplomatic Service.

1510 - Cyber Threat Management and Balancing Investment
           -  An unorthodox view on cybercrime: Hackers do have a real and interesting job - they
              also run a good business model.
           -  Where do you put your IT budget? Is it balanced?
           -  What can you already do on your own? Do not spend all your money with external
              companies.

Marcel Van OirschotMarcel van Oirschot is Commercial Director of Fox-IT. During his keynote, Marcel will show you an unorthodox view on cybercrime. Hackers do have a real and interesting job, they also run a good business model. Where do you put your IT budget? Is it balanced? What can you already do on your own? Do not spend all your money with external companies.

As Commercial Director at Fox-IT, part of NCC, Marcel is responsible for the worldwide commercial activities and strategy. The key aspect is to have the right focus on the significant markets related to the growing importance of security. Sometimes security is overhyped, and then again, in a lot of other cases, it does not get the consideration it deserves. Security is too often seen as an IT issue, however, Fox-IT sees it more as a business continuity thing. Marcel leads a team of almost 30 people who are helping customers in the areas of Managed Security Services, Online Fraud Detection and Data diodes to secure real one-way traffic. Before joining Fox-IT, he was responsible for IBM’s Security team in the Benelux Union. Initially, almost 20 years ago, Marcel built his career in the discrete manufacturing world for companies like EDS and Siemens.
