Dylan Johnston is one of Switzerland’s leading cybersecurity, privacy, risk management and compliance experts. His strong academic background (M.Sc Information Security, Royal Holloway, University of London) and in-depth technical expertise are complemented by over 20 years experience in the design, execution and management of security and privacy programs for organisations in highly regulated business sectors (pharmaceuticals, digital health, banking and telecommunications), where the adoption of a risk-based approach to the protection of critical information assets is central to corporate missions and business success.
Dylan’s work for organisations such as AT&T, Swisscom, United Nations, Bank for International Settlements and Hoffmann-La Roche has equipped him with unique insight into how information security and privacy principles can be injected into the culture of an organisation and that of the entities (customers, patients, businesses, research institutions and governments) with whom it exchanges sensitive data.
