After more than 30 years working in information technology and (cyber) security, Oscar O’Connor has developed a passion for ensuring customers get what they need from the technology products and services they invest so heavily in. He believes very strongly that customers should be entitled to expect systems to be secure, resilient and should have performance, sustainability, security and privacy designed in from the earliest concept stages.
He helps his clients see through the snake oil, smoke and mirrors to turn their aspirations into achievable, structured and fully costed strategies, tactics and plans on whatever scale is appropriate. He helps them articulate why they do what they do, help enthuse and captivate their people and external stakeholders to deliver tangible, beneficial growth.
He is a Fellow of the British Computer Society, a professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Information Security and the Business Continuity Institute, a Chartered Engineer, Chartered IT Professional, Fellow of the RSA, Certified Information Security Manager and Certified Data Privacy Solutions Engineer. He has been published by the British Computer Society (BCS), the Business Continuity Institute (BCI), Continuity Insurance and Risk, and IT Week amongst others and has spoken at conferences and seminars on Information Security, Risk Management and Business Continuity for organisations such as the CBI, the BCI, the BCS, IAAC, SASIG, the Superyacht Security Forum, and the Public Policy Exchange.
