Cybersecurity & Digital Resilience

  • Simon has over 15 years of experience of what good cybersecurity looks like in a range of industries, and the processes and structures required to achieve it.

  • Simon's background in government security apparatus, security product development, Big 4 consulting and as a CISO provides him with an informed perspective on state of the market, corporate challenges and the regulatory environment.

  • Simon understands the chain of causation, knowing what elements need to be revised or revisited, in order to get the best out of cybersecurity teams with the resources available.

  • Staying one step removed from the Executive, Simon acts as a critical friend and mentor to cybersecurity risk owners, voicing constructive criticism where necessary and providing an expert lens on matters of cybersecurity risk.

  • Simon understands that when it comes to cyber security, boards have a difficult job to do. On the one hand they need to ensure their companies are at the forefront of digital transformation so as not to be left behind; on the other hand they need to make sure that their companies are resilient to the cyber attacks which digital transformation will amplify.

  • Simon ensures that the debate around cybersecurity is as healthy as that concerning other areas of the business, helping create a safe environment where the overall vision of the board trumps any personal agenda.
