Jericho Forum Speakers:-

Adrian SeccombeAdrian Seccombe, based in the UK, is a Research Associate for the Leading Edge Forum.  Adrian principally focuses on two research domains – The Consumerization of IT, with particular emphasis on the future of mobility, and Business/IT Co-evolution, with emphasis on managing information as an asset including identity, risk, governance and compliance.

Adrian joined Lilly as a Telecoms Analyst in 1980.  As Manager of Telecom & Technology Development, Adrian relocated to Lilly headquarters in Indianapolis.  Following four years in various management positions, including IT Strategy Manager, he moved to become the IT Director for Lilly in France.  On returning to the UK, Adrian took responsibility for the Lilly IT infrastructure of Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific & Japan.  He then took global responsibility for Lilly Client Computing & Collaboration Services, whilst retaining his responsibility for the EMEA infrastructure.  He then led the development of Lilly’s Information Risk Management processes, and the IT Quality and Security Management teams based around the globe.

John Arnold John Arnold has been with Capgemini since 2000 when he joined as a security architect. Since that time he has architected many types of secure system, and now leads the Security Architecture competency within Capgemini’s Security Consulting Practice in the UK.

Before Capgemini, John worked at Admiral as a security tester and contributed to the ITSEM, an EU security evaluation methodology; at Data Sciences where he developed security engineering tools; and at Ferranti where he played a very small part in the automation of the Cadbury’s Crunchie Bar line.
