Guest: Wendy Goucher FBCS

Interviewer: Jo Stansfield FHCA, MBCS


6:30pm - Webinar begins
9:00pm - Event ends


Join us in conversation with Wendy. Wendy is a Cyber Security Consultant at Arcanum Cyber, where she gets to work with some seriously brilliant people, which is great because she loves working in a team.

She specialises in risk and assurance which, after some bumpy journeys along her career path, she found to be an ideal area of cyber security for her because it uses her business focused brain to its best.

She also specialises in cyber communications which resulted in her authoring some textbooks, including one for the BCS. Wendy is neuro diverse in that she has dyspraxia and ADHD which brings challenges, but also the sort of creative brain that enabled her to create stories for 4-7 year olds the (Nettie in Cyberland series) and also for 8-11 year olds (Eesha and the Mud Monster Mystery) which help young children to talk about cyber safety and gently learn to act more safely online.

The skills she uses for that also helps her to write policies – although they generally have fewer pictures. She also writes cyber safety short stories for senior folk (The Canon Doyle Series) and is slowly recording these as audio stories because even people whose eyesight is failing can be empowered to be safer online.
