The Human Side of Cybersecurity: An Exclusive Q&A with Southeastern Grocers CISO Chris Gay

November 6, 2017 No Comments

Featured interview by The Cyber Security Exchange

Chris Gay, VP and Chief Information Security Officer of Southeastern Grocers and advocate for cybersecurity education, will be leading a roundtable discussion on the topic at the upcoming Cyber Security Exchange in Amelia Island, Florida, this December 4-6. Ahead of the Exchange, we sat down with him to talk cybersecurity education and awareness, challenges to CISOs at large companies, mitigating risks associated with new technology and more.
