How to Get in Front of Threats at a Global Scale from Verizon’s CSO
When you have a retail footprint in nearly 40 countries around the globe, having the same security plan in each region is a straight path to chaos — or worse, harm to employees, customers, or assets. Dan Maloney, Chief Security Officer (CSO) and Senior Vice President of Global Corporate Security with Verizon Communications, knows a thing or two about building a comprehensive (“360”) security plan that is specific to each environment where Verizon operates.
He chats with Fred about how he puts his plan into action — from culture, to prioritizing resources in the most pressing environments, to identifying technology gaps and more. He shares how security extends far beyond the physical sides and demands a multi-layer approach with intelligence teams, GSOC, continuity teams, and executive protection — the more people are talking the greater chance you have of getting in front of an unwanted event. They end their discussion by acknowledging the stress that retail environments undergo on a daily basis and tips that his team has found successful to minimize it.
Dan Maloney serves as Chief Security Officer and Senior Vice President of Global Corporate Security with Verizon Communications where he oversees 13 departments covering full-spectrum security across the global corporate footprint. He has been with Verizon and its legacy companies since 1997, and he oversees and coordinates global security efforts throughout Verizon and all its business units, including enterprise-wide security strategy and programs, physical security, cybersecurity, legal compliance, and law enforcement matters.
