Taking place at the Hilton Deansgate, Manchester on 16 July, the SJUK Leaders in Security Conference will be chaired by Rick Mounfield, Director, Optimal Risk Group.
Having led the Security Institute through five years of exponential growth, Rick Mounfield MSc CSyP RISC FSyI chose to return to the security consultancy sector, joining Optimal Risk Group as a Director in 2022.
His role is multi- dimensional. One focus is Optimal Risk’s Strategic growth, and the other is helping its clients manage security risk. These clients are multinational companies, predominantly in the technical innovation sectors and critical national infrastructure, with CSOs that value the peer-to-peer partnership that helps them consider diverse risk management strategies.
In his role as Chair, Mounfield will work alongside the specially appointed independent Advisory Panel – comprised of some of leading names in the UK and wider European security industry – to curate a thought-provoking agenda which addresses the key issues keeping security leaders from the UK and Europe awake at night.
After five years of Influencing the UK security industry with the Security Institute and more recent application of vast knowledge gained in that five-year period, Rick’s experience and practical perspectives add to the infrastructure for a Conference that will challenge, harness and enhance thought leadership.
Commenting on his appointment, Mounfield said: “When I was invited to be Chair for the SJUK Leaders in Security Conference, it sparked the same creative flame that I enjoy in my consultancy work. I am excited about building what will be a ground-breaking conference – an event that promotes collaboration and brings together the leading individuals our sector has to offer, for the benefit of our professional community and wider society.”
