I am Marilise de Villiers, a Cyber Security entrepreneur. I am currently supporting the Global Chief Security Officer of a FTSE 100 Energy & Services company with the delivery of an awareness, skills and cultural change elements within a multi-year security transformation programme.
I specialise in the human aspects of cyber security: raising awareness, developing skills and embedding secure mindsets and habits. I’ve led the design and roll-out of global awareness, training and cultural change programmes across a broad range of industries and disciplines over the past 15 years; I am comfortable working with cross-cultural and virtual teams. I passionately believe that organisations and society can only become truly secure if we strengthen the ‘human firewall’ and make people our strongest defence against cyber attacks.
As a high performance coach and trainer, I am on a mission to help teams and individuals to reach their full potential.
