About Me

My name is Michael Lines, and I am an information security/risk executive and consultant with over 20 years of experience as a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), Advisory Information Security practice leader, and information security/risk consultant. The companies I have worked at as the 1st or 2nd CISO include PricewaterhouseCoopers, TransUnion, and 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.
