Lifelong Learning of a Global Security Officer: The One Lesson That Took Me the Longest to Learn

Being a security officer is a challenging position in any regulated business, but when your firm is an expanding Fortune 50 multinational corporation with revenues over $120 billion, the challenges are unique and ever-changing. Rising through the security ranks at Valero Energy and now serving as the head of global security operations, William Wilkins is a lifelong student of the trade. As a creative strategist, he possesses the seasoned experience of the chief security officer framework: compliance, risk, operations, financial, technical, management and people expertise. He has grown his acumen in virtually every professional discipline, but there is one lesson in his security life that took him the longest to learn – a lesson all of us in security can perhaps learn from. Curious yet? Join us at The Advance for what promises to be an energetic, inspiring and insightful presentation.
