Now also CTO of Ogilvie Group, which employs over 550 staff throughout the UK and turns over in excess of £250m, Alan invests his time ensuring that the vulnerable, notably small businesses and charities, have access to affordable online security expertise as the evolving threat landscape continues to move at pace.

This responsible approach is unusual in an industry often tarnished by commercial greed and a love of high profile only engagements. Alan leads the team at Net-Defence to ensure all clients, global brands, household names, small businesses and third sector organisations alike experience the same level of high quality service.

He has been on a mission to ensure business leaders in industries outwith security, are informed of their emerging governance accountabilities in a digital era, and to protect those under threat from high profile exposure online.
