Andrzej Kawalec - Vodafone Business

Title: Head of Cybersecurity 

Presentation: Panel Discussion: The Future of Cyber & Vodafone: Ransomware presentation

Time: 2pm Thu, June 23 & 3:30pm Thu, June 23

Bio: Andrzej Kawalec is the Head of Security Portfolio at Vodafone Business. Andrzej manages Vodafone Business’ global portfolio of security offerings. An inspirational and creative leader in the use of advanced information technology, Andrzej is constantly working to refine the balance between securing and enabling information assets. 

Andrzej widely recognized for his expertise in cyber security and digital change. A former CTO himself, he has a vast amount of experience working at the board-level across public and private sectors, helping to define and promote cyber security strategy. He believes that Security is the enabling layer for innovation. From autonomous driving to digital healthcare, the technologies and societies of the future will not reach their full potential without secure digital foundations. 

Prior to joining Vodafone Andrzej was Global CTO for security and Director of Security Research at HP, as well as head of Strategy and CTO at Optiv the world’s largest security Systems integrator. 

Andrzej has spent over 20 years at some of the world’s most innovative companies, including Optiv, HP, Siemens, Compaq and EDS. He has held various board level positions including innovation, marketing, consulting and strategy. His experience with start-ups and niche advisory gives an intimate knowledge of both the macro and micro challenges facing organisations today. 

He regularly advises governments, defence, and global enterprises in how to define and promote information strategies. A recognised leader in security and business strategy planning, Andrzej is a frequent speaker at industry events and active in research and development projects - recently delivering a keynote for the Air and Space Power Conference for the Air Chief Marshall and RAF. 

He is a member of the Forbes Technology Council and recently completed a series of papers with MIT. He has also lead the World Economic Forum’s – Cyber Resilience project and member of the Global Agenda Council on Cyber Security. He is a mentor and advisor to innovators, startups and entrepreneurs - notably at Cylon a hub for cyber acceleration. 

"Today, the nature of organisations is that they are fundamentally more reliant on technology than ever before. Hybrid ways of working have exploded the attack surface, and the pandemic has forced many businesses to quickly implement digital solutions in order to continue operating, meaning security has all-too-often become an afterthought.

Criminals are exploiting this changing landscape and are constantly scanning the internet for these open doors and easy opportunities. They have industrialised and are capable of prosecuting at scale using targeted campaigns.

Ransomware as a service (RaaS) is now a fully functioning business, with a highly developed criminal ecosystem offering malicious SaaS software, pay-as-you-go consumption, tech support and even revenue share models. Furthermore, they are all working together, sharing affiliates. If one gang drops, another one will take its place. It’s like a game of ‘Wack-a-mole’ and it’s a global problem that is not going away, especially as more businesses will continue to digitally transform in order to survive.

Protecting your business, all comes down to securing data properly. Know what you’re doing and understand your high-risk areas. Paying ransom will not solve the problem.

In this session, we will look at how this evolving threat landscape impacts us and how businesses can protect themselves and use their employees to build out their cyber maturity," said Kawalec.
