George Finney - Selected as a 2018 Security Magazine Thought Leader

We are proud to announce that OIT’s own George Finney has been featured as one of Security Magazine’s Security 500 as a Thought Leader for 2018!

George has worn many hats during his long career at SMU, and he has made great strides in revolutionizing cybersecurity practices during his time as Chief Security Officer. From modernizing physical security to the creation of a security operations center, George and his team have shown how important cybersecurity is to the success of SMU as a whole.

In addition to his duties as CSO, George has also written a book on cybersecurity practices: No More Magic Wands: Transformative Cybersecurity Change for Everyone. The book details common cybersecurity issues in an informative, entertaining, and above-all actionable way.

Congratulations to George on his achievement!
