Skills Snapshot

Like every other Cyber Security professional, I have varied skills and can respond for any requirements in IT / IS Audit, BCP/DR, ISO implementation, GRC, SOC, Security Strategy, Maturity Assessment, Crisis Management, Service Management and more.

These represent my current top interests as a professional. These are areas where I am most comfortable providing services to clients and the differentiation I bring is a highly pragmatic and practical point of view, and advice.

You are welcome to discuss your requirements (or challenges) and I shall be happy to speak with you, or meet you to understand and design a workable solution.


Opportunities I am highly interested in:

  • Speaking at your Conference / Event

  • Being your Virtual CISO

  • Providing Training or Awareness Sessions

  • Cyber Security Consulting & Advisory Services

Chief Information Security Officer

Virtual CISO

Cyber threats are increasing and every company, big or small, must secure itself against the risk of malicious attacks. You need deep cyber security expertise on hand, to plan  your cyber security strategy and to put controls into operation, to ensure your assets are continuously protected.

I will be your CISO, your Information Security Officer who will work with  your team, as your insider. The CISOs job is complex and a full-time CISO may not be recommended at this stage (possibly because you want the business to mature and grow, and a full-time CISO may be expensive).

My experience is across the full InfoSec / CyberSec domain as I have been a practising security professional for over a decade. Together with cyber security expertise, I have extensive management experience across various sectors.

So, whether you are in manufacturing, banking, financial services, development, travel, e-commerce, or any business vertical. I have got you covered with my experience and knowledge. You may or may not have any security control, and are just wanting to know whether it is worth getting an IS management system in place – connect with me and I can help you make a decision, based on practical and pragmatic advise.

Professional Speaker at Conference & Events

Cyber Security Training & Awareness

As a professional Cyber Security specialist I welcome the opportunity to speak at conferences and events

I know, therefore I have the urge to share (my knowledge).

This is my ethos, to speak. To speak at conferences and events – whether big or small, an university or a school – I welcome any opportunity to share what I have learned over the years. The rationale is very simple – I have learned from open source sources and

Over the years, I have covered Cyber Security on subjects ranging from fundamentals to cyber war, future risks, national security, personal security etc as well as academic topics like IT Audit, Privacy and more.

If you are organising an event in an academic institution, or you are a non-profit, you are more than welcome to call me to speak. For commercial organisations, the terms are slightly different.

Follow this link to my Professional Speaker page and you can access my speaker profile and pictures, along with a few videos, and presentations.

Reach out for best-in-class Cyber Security Training and Security Awareness 

Training and Awareness are two essential pillars on the InfoSec setup in any organisation. Both are quite different from each other and should not be confused (or mixed up) for each other.

I provide training in various Cyber Security subjects as well as for certifications. My training programs are custom developed as per your requirement, the audience and the line of business. Training subjects can be for Incident Management, Security Controls, IS Audit, BCP/DR, GRC, Risk Management and more.

Security Awareness is very close to my heart and have carried out such sessions for senior management, as well as all other users in an organisation. The awareness sessions I conduct include references to actual incidents and events, as well as my personal experiences. I also design annual awareness programs for organisations providing guidance on the subjects and including posters, content and collateral as well.

Cyber Security training in Ops on subjects like: Red Teaming, Incident Response & Handling, Crisis Management, SCADA/ICS testing, Threat hunting and more.

Or you can call for GRC training like: Privacy – GDPR etc, Certifications like CISA / CISM / CISSP / ITIL, Risk Management, IT / IS Audit and much more.
