Cloud Security Competency Lead, IBM
An information security professional with over 20 years of experience leading teams in technical environments, across highly regulated industries and delivering complex solutions. Historically I have designed, built and supported integrated security solutions on-premise or in data centres and have transformed this experience and my skills to apply to the Cloud. I have a broad understanding across all security domains and specialise in applying this agnostically to Public Cloud and DevOps environments. Having supported production workloads for UK Government on AWS from 2010 onwards I have seen the public cloud emerge and mature. Initially I supported clients to understand the cloud landscape technically and influence decision makers and accreditors to gain approval to transform and modernise workloads, whilst maintaining necessarily high levels of security. Now my team and I design and delivery solutions across all Cloud Service Providers and industries with a recent focus on enterprise level Financial Services.
