Currently fulfilling the role of GM of Bytes Security, Powered by Performanta, Richard has over 24 years’ experience as an IT professional, with the last 14 years focusing on IT security, the last 9 of which have been in a leadership role. Richard has a background in computer forensics, and has had exposure across all the domains of IT security at vendor, distribution, and re-seller levels.

Richard’s thesis focused on investigating the impact of anti-forensic methods and has been used at international forensics conferences, specifically at “The international conference in information security and digital forensics” Thessaloniki Greece, December 12-14, 2014, and has been published in the International Journal of Cyber-Security and Digital Forensics (IJCSDF).

IT Security is an extremely challenging area for most customers to address effectively. Showing a clear understanding of the threat landscape and the challenges faced by organisations in this constantly-evolving industry, combined with an effective delivery mechanism and strong engagement model, will ultimately ensure that our customers are better-protected. As a direct consequence, our business will achieve the heights that we envision for it.
