Adam Banks

Maersk | CIO

Adam Banks is Chief Technology & Information Officer of the world’s biggest shipping company AP Moller-Maersk. Prior to his role as CIO, Adam was Vice President and Head of Simplification, an IT role that demands a high-level view of systems and processes and ensuring they can be done with a smaller, future-proof range of hardware and software. When the company was hit by the largest malicious cyberattack to date, he was at the heart of efforts to both keep the company going and repair the damage. Maersk, one of the world’s largest companies, responsible for moving almost every conceivable type of object all over the world, runs on technology. Systems that track the whereabouts of millions of tonnes of cargo every minute of every day, anywhere on Earth.

After the attack, Maersk moved risk governance from a central corporate function to a CISO function, so the CISO makes policy as well as enforces it. In his insightful talk he’ll explain the details of this enforcement—and when he expects the CISO to kick down the door.
