Computing and IT

My passion is cyber security. Ever since I programmed my first computer at the age of 10, I developed a keen interest in computing. I hope to instil this knowledge and enthusiasm in my students.

Recently, I created the National Archives “Responsible for Information” online training programme for SMEs. I also advised the UK Government, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) to establish the preferred cyber security organisational standard, now known as Cyber Essentials.
