About Steve Wright

📖 Summary

I am passionate about big data and all things digital. With more than 20 years’ experience, designing, developing, managing and delivering transformational data governance, privacy and security programmes, my vast experience as a pragmatic and charismatic leader, ideally places me as the ‘trusted advisor’ to the Board on all privacy and security related matters. I am also a published author, a non-exec director and is regularly invited to speak at industry events, trade associations and thought leadership working groups, working towards continually finding new ways to increase trust and transparency in respect of consumer services, business functions and product vendors. I believe that big data (governance), cyber security and privacy are all inextricably linked as they share common objectives and principles, and therefore, require satisfactory safeguards and assurances. From a business perspective, this can be achieved by building ‘data trust and assurance’ programmes based on the fundamental principles of transparency, accountability, protection, integrity, confidentially and availability, accompanied by clear policies and delivered through comprehensive training, integrated procedures and a robust compliance regime. My role as Chief Privacy Officer at Unilever is particularly relevant because Unilever’s digital ambition, to connect with one billion consumers around the world, pushes the boundaries of functionality, connectivity and personalisation. My role is to work collaboratively to help steer and shape the digital conversation and leverage the power of data analytics. Having once served as a CISO, and held senior roles at Deloitte, PwC, Siemens and Capita, I have a full appreciation of what is required to get the job done in a cost effective, pragmatic and timely fashion. I have a natural ability to lead from the front, to coach others and to take responsibility consistently, courageously and with integrity.Chief Privacy Officer @ Winning in the marketplace requires building consumer intimacy and gaining trust in new ways, leveraging the internet, social media, websites and mobile phones, joint initiatives with companies like Facebook and Google, and using technologies outside Unilever’s control.
