Grant Lecky: The Visionary

Lauren Gibbons Paul | Oct. 23, 2013
Founder of the Canadian Security Partners' Forum, Lecky went after his dream of elevating the security industry while keeping his day job

The CSPF is busily launching programs and events, including a Cybersecurity for Executives lecture series designed to raise security awareness. The group is also now working with its association members to develop a framework for dialog across security-related fields, including business continuity, emergency management, risk management, critical infrastructure protection, defense and intelligence.

Thanks to its fast start, the CSPF is now getting a lot of attention from security professionals in other countries who are interested in following suit. "I'm seeing other countries following our example or adopting a variation of what we're doing," says Lecky. Australia, for example, is working on creating a security alliance.

Work on the CSPF might seem burdensome for someone, even without the additional weight of another full-time position and without the prospect of greater fortune. "I don't like being bored," says Lecky. "The reward right now is a job well done. I'm furiously stubborn. If there's something I feel needs to be done, I will just go and do it."
