“Pasionate about keeping your business safe”
Richard’s career began long before cyber security was ever an issue. Back in the 90’s cyber security attracts were relatively new, when viruses only spread via floppy disks and were easy to track and control.
However, as we know, this changed.
Growing from having just 5 PC’s in 1994 to 40 PCs in 2003, Richard found himself on the cutting edge of cyber security, as his employer, in partnership with Siemens, required them to work closely with GCHQ to respond to potential vulnerabilities.
Shaping his career, cyber security and building IT systems became Richard’s main focus. In 2007, Richard worked with Diplomat to create the first-ever online booking systems for taxi and private hire vehicles, including the first national passenger booking apps and fully responsive online booking websites.
When the company took on a large contract for BP, Richard built the comprehensive security features that give BP the confidence they needed to protect the location of staff using private fleet vehicles in dangerous countries. This included working closely with BP to ensure systems were properly integrated.
Now working within his own company, Richard continues to work on challenging projects for a variety of companies throughout the world. Richard continues to monitor advances in Cyber Security to make sure his clients are always protected and are implementing the very best protection. He writes a regular blog on latest trends and is always happy to answer your questions on cyber security.
