GM VP of global cyber Kevin Tierney presents ‘Building Cyber Leaders and Leadership’ at Walsh College’s Conversation With Leaders

TROY, Mich., Nov. 22, 2021 — Kevin Tierney, vice president, global cybersecurity for General Motors, will present Building Cyber Leaders and Leadership Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2021 from 12-1 p.m. as part of Walsh College’s Conversation With Leaders series. This free, live virtual event will be moderated by Leon Nash, partner, Deloitte. This event, the first in a series of three discussions that will run through 2022, is open to all. Those who work in CFO and CIO offices will benefit significantly from the session. Reservations are required.

Tierney oversees all aspects of cybersecurity risk across the General Motors enterprise. In his previous role as chief product cybersecurity officer he built one of the industry’s first internal red team penetration testing lab and launched the first security vulnerability disclosure program of any major automaker.

“Cyber vulnerability is one of the most significant challenges facing businesses today. Organizations must develop cybersecurity leaders within their own ranks to mitigate complex, ever-evolving cybersecurity risks. Walsh College incorporates this principle into our cybersecurity curriculum and we are fortunate to have Kevin Tierney share his expertise in this area with the Walsh community,” said Michael Levens, Ph.D., president and CEO of Walsh College.
