Liz Banbury spent approximately 16 years working in Technology within the Financial industry and started out in JPMorgan working in the Back Office Settlements systems and progressed to Release/Environment management.
She has now been in the Information Security space for 8+ years firstly with ANZ Bank as the Security, Risk and Compliance Manager on a global online and mobile banking infrastructure project which progressed to a role as the Regional Portfolio manager for Information Security & Technology Risk within the Information Security Office and currently with Standard Chartered heading up the Information & Cyber Security Policy.
She is passionate about what she does and particularly interested in people and the impact that behaviour and culture has on our security holistically. Cyber Security is a very interesting, dynamic, fast moving, fast changing area where she feels that each individual should have a certain basic level of knowledge in the key threats we face and controls that need to be put in place to safeguard themselves and their assets both at home and in the workplace.
She is CISSP [Certified Information Systems Security Professional] certified and has been a member of (ISC)² since 2016 and as a progression of that passion and interest in how people and technology interact joined the (ISC)² London Chapter as one of the founding officers when it was originally incorporated in January 2018.
Since leaving school she has been fortunate enough to have been able to travel a fair amount and has spent 20 years living in Asia, first in Hong Kong and more recently in Singapore, returning to London in June 2017
