About the speakers:

Andrew DenleyAndrew Denley, Information Security Compliance and Governance Specialist

With thirty-five years’ experience in sectors covering Research, Intelligence, Government and Commerce I have worked in technology all my career, seamlessly moving into IT from Data Communications with the advent of work-place computers and then into Information Security as the use of the Internet expanded. Passionate about Information Risk and Security I have continuously championed these ‘necessary evils’ as business enablers believing that they sit firmly within the business, rather than IT, function.

I have been motivating and leading teams since my early teens and am a firm believer in leading by example and from the front yet using all the team skills to hand to achieve a successful outcome. Having worked in many diverse sectors and environments I believe I am able to bring a wealth of experience to almost any situation.
