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.

  • Staying one step removed from the Executive, he 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.

  • He 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.

  • He 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
