Over the past 25 years Alistair has amassed considerable experience in developing and commercialising cyber security products and services with global technology brands in the UK, EMEA, North America and Asia-Pacific. His understanding of how identity and trust technologies underpin digital transformation is leading security service innovations designed to solve the simple cyber risks that are continuing to threaten small- and medium-sized enterprses with data breaches and business interruption.
Alistair joined Business in the Community’s (BITC) Business Emergency Resilience Group (BERG) Leadership Team because he believes in the power of community to drive lasting change. As the African proverb goes: ‘it takes a village to raise a child’. It also takes a village, or businesses working together under the BITC umbrella, to raise cyber awareness and make society and organisations more cyber resilient. Alistair is passionate about helping organisations secure and insure against cyberthreats and protect their data, brands and privacy. He believes there can be no digital transformation without security.
Alistair believes digital trust is fundamental to do doing business in the 21st century. Once it is interrupted because of a cyber attack, it has a knock-on effect on society and the communities we live and work in. He believes BERG provides the perfect platform to collaboratively drive cyber awareness initiatives so businesses can focus on what they do best and thrive.
