Bio: Tracy Ancliff, Head Global Cyber Security Operations Monitoring, HSBS

Having worked for HSBC longer than many of you are years old, I have a fantastic wealth of experience, skills and knowledge from working in Retail and Commercial frontline roles (running my own branches, looking after a portfolio of business customers), to project management (PMP certified industry qualification) and now creating and running a global team in our Cyber Security Function.

I have also been involved in many gender diversity actives, have mentored and coached many on their own personal development and being mentored myself during my career.

My latest role has given me an insight into some of the challenges we face when protecting ourselves from Cyber Criminals and I am shocked at the skills shortage and talent pipeline we have in the sector. So I am making it a personal goal of my own to do what I can personally to address this issue and look forward to sharing some insights with you on why this is such a fantastic area for you to consider making a career in.
