Thom Langford

Director, (TL)2 Security Ltd

Thom Langford is the Founder of (TL)2 Security, a strategic Information Security Consultancy that focuses on Virtual CISO, strategic business alignment and public speaking/advocacy for hire. As Chief Information Security Officer of Publicis Groupe, Langford was responsible for all aspects of information security risk and compliance, as well as managing the Groupe Information Security Programme. Additionally, the role was responsible for business continuity capabilities across the Groupe’s global operations. Having successfully built security and IT programs from the ground up, Langford brings an often opinionated and forward-thinking view of security risk, both in assessments and management, but is able to do so with humor and pragmatism (mostly).
