Gretchen Ruck

Director, Head of Cybersecurity Practice
AlixPartners LLP twitter

As a management consultant and seasoned IT and Risk executive, my mission is to create new perceptions of risk and security as business-enablers and to encourage innovation through digital transformation, culture-shift, and collaborative practices. I advise executives, board directors and equity investors on the impact of cyber security and data protection risks to their organizations, business initiatives, investments and acquisitions.

With over 20 years of experience, I’ve served in lead security and risk roles and, as a trusted advisor, consulted with numerous global organizations and government agencies. My contributions include presenting at industry events, guest lecturing at universities, sharing expertise through news and media, leading and developing workshops and training, mentoring and blogging on digital innovation, cybersecurity, risk assurance, privacy, leadership, and diversity topics.

Diverse representation is a priority for us. We're proud to say that our Summit speakers are 80% queer women, 50% women of color, 25% Black & Latinx, and 15% transgender and gender nonconforming.
