Neal Pollard is the CISO of UBS and has steadily built his career to safeguard people and information in a time of terrorism and cyber threats.   Neal knows that how we respond to a significant incident can be the difference between success and failure.  Read about how he has honed his career to become an expert in cybersecurity and whether he is more concerned about cloud security or protecting AI systems in this OODA Network Expert interview.

“Wriston wrote that money goes where it’s wanted and stays where it’s well treated.  It’s an old adage that people and ideas are valuable assets, but Neal applies Wriston’s philosophy here: good people and ideas are truly like money – they go where they’re wanted and they stay where they’re well treated, and the job of a leader is mainly just to surround themselves with good people and good ideas, and treat them well.”
