Straight from school to BT’s Security Awareness Team I found out pretty early on that the people side of security was what I was interested in. By the time I was 21 I was running the team, and learning what it was like to try and get budget and buy-in for the people side of security. Which is where my incessant drive for improving how we measure behaviour change comes from.
Between then and now – Graduating with a 1st in Professional Communications whilst working full time and competing for the UK in Age-Group Triathlon, becoming a parent, being a Trustee for a local charity, working in small organisations, delivering change programmes to FTSE100 clients – helped me do the toughest thing yet! The decision to start Layer 8!
And I do it because I truly believe in people, and that a future exists where we’re on par, or even ahead of the hackers. I believe each and every one of us has the power and the freedom to make change happen and that’s a life lesson I especially want to pass on to my daughter.
