Garrett S. Smiley

CISO & VP of Information Security, Serco

I have over 20 years’ experience as an Information Technology and Information Security leader. I have extensive know-how in the areas of business continuity, compliance, governance, identity management, incident response, network security, risk management, security awareness and training, security operations, strategy and roadmaps, and vulnerability management. I currently have heavy C-level and Board of Directors (BoD) interaction, meeting with senior executives in weekly and monthly intervals and with BoD members at least quarterly. Additionally, I have also taken pain-staking efforts to establish rapport with all business units, departments, customers, vendors, and fellow employees, so that I can better understand their concerns and conversely, they can better appreciate my role as CISO and help me secure the business. I do this by speaking to them all in a language they can understand (e.g., cost/benefit to execs, KRIs to the risk team, liability to the board, tailored solutions to the customer, etc.). Given my strong compliance background, I have deep knowledge of various information security frameworks and standards (e.g., ISO 27001, NISPOM, OWASP, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FERPA, FISMA, etc.). I couple this knowledge with my understanding of the various security capabilities in the market (e.g., 2FA, CASB, DLP, ML, NAC, RPA, SEIM, UBA, etc.) to achieve the desired risk posture for the organization.
