Press & Media

As well as being a technologist I am a security industry analyst contributing research into commercial organisations (former Gartner CTO and staffer but working with 451, Forrester and Redmonk) and government bodies alike. Since 2003 I have also been a print journalist and am a proud card carrying member of the NUJ both writing and recording content, so here are a few of the 740+ articles I’ve had published since 2000.

I talk to some of the leading folk globally in security ranging from CISO’s of leading brands through to the developers of technology we use daily. The back catalogue dating back to 2012 generates downloads of over 150k listens per month, every month eating over 60Gb of bandwidth a month which proves how busy it is.

My Wife and I have a tongue in cheek non technical podcast broadcast from the UK every Sunday evening that is entirely nothing whatsoever to do with security or technology. It’s amusing and well followed with over 100k listeners every week across territories worldwide. It keeps folk amused and is a great way to delve into the life of a Linux widow !
