"I've got a very global team and get to work with people all over the world," and that can bring diverse approaches and value to information security work, he said. "But at the same time, it is also challenging as we bring on new businesses and try to get ahead of the game and ensure what we're purchasing is secure."

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2023, Hunt also discusses:

  • Other security challenges and opportunities involving mergers and acquisitions;
  • Harmonizing people, processes and technology post-M&A;
  • His role as global CISO at Apex Group Ltd.

Hunt has worked extensively across U.K. government departments, FTSE/FORBES organizations and critical national infrastructure, in addition to authoring the U.K.'s first quantitative framework and actuarial model for information risk.
