Simon Goldsmith

Senior Director – Information Security

I have helped to protect military helicopters, central banks and Yeezy sneakers over a 20+ year career in security, IT and financial crime.

A short stint in professional sport taught me about resilience, endurance and performance. Along the way I’ve picked up a few lessons in leadership and teamwork both in the office and on the pitch.

Ever since writing the business case for an Air Force which needed a new IT system to be able to fly its new generation of fighters, I have been passionate about the potential for technology to be a simultaneous cause of opportunity and risk.
