Brighton, February 2nd, 2022 – Broadlight Global

A leading digital consultancy that provides a suite of expertise and capabilities across digital product delivery, cloud and team scaling, announced today that Mario Platt joins the leadership team as CISO, to further enhance the security practice with forward-thinking approaches to information security, security engineering and data protection.  

Having already worked with Broadlight Global during its inception, Mario re-joins the leadership team following his tenure with trusted Broadlight client CloudMargin, where he successfully led their ISO27001 Certification process and set up their security management practice.

Mario's prior assignments include leading a UK government agency's digital transformation project of adopting DevOps methodologies and creating integrated risk management and compliance frameworks for PhotoBox and was Head of Information Security Assurance at Dixons Carphone Group. In that role, he led the restructuring of the function after serving as Information Security Manager for a software business within the Group.  

As a security challenger, Mario will regularly share his wealth of experience at industry talks and round tables, contributing to the global discussion on the future of information security and DevSecOps. You can find Mario's thought pieces on his blog, where you can expect exploration and conversations about applying business principles and methods, Complexity-thinking, Wardley mapping, Resilience Engineering and Safety-II literature to the practices of Cyber Security.  

Mario aims to help expand the application of these powerful strategic methods to how we approach Cyber Security overall.
