Former UK Diplomat, and Former Chief Security Officer & Chief Information Security Officer, Deloitte
Sarah-Jill Lennard’s career in the Foreign Office included postings in Montevideo, Brussels, Budapest and Washington. For her last post in the public service she ran a government agency which produced high end secure technology and engineering solutions for government. She was recruited into Deloitte in 2011 to lead a strategic and holistic approach to security, an area where clients’ requirements are only increasing and the risk to reputation is very real. As Security Partner, her responsibilities combined the roles of Chief Security Officer & Chief Information Security Officer at second line of defence, and Chief Confidentiality & Privacy Officer for the UK and Switzerland, and latterly for North West Europe. Her responsibilities included leading the response team in the event of an incident or crisis. She left Deloitte in late 2018 and established her own company, Illustro Consultancy Services, and now holds both NED and advisory roles.
