About Me

What is this site about?

I use this site to update my readers about my books on security and technology, and for random posts on these topics when I think they are relevant. 

Who am I?

I am Michael Lines, an information security/risk executive and consultant with a 20+ year record as a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), advisory Information Security practice leader, and information security/risk consultant. Companies where I have worked as the 1st or 2nd CISO, include PricewaterhouseCoopers, TransUnion, FICO among others. 

I write, blog, present, speaks, and provide interviews on a wide variety of information security topics, primarily concerning what it takes to develop and run effective information security programs, and why so many companies continue to suffer security breaches due to ineffective programs. Details on my publications, webinars, and events are mostly available from my LinkedIn profile.

Please use the contact me form if you would like to reach me regarding an interview or to ask for to speak at an event on cyber-related matters.
