More than 20 years in financial services and technology made me believe in change through innovation & partnerships. I am regularly invited to advise organisations of all sizes on payments, cybercrime, information security, regulations (e.g. PSD2, GDPR, etc.) and digital innovation where I always strive to demystify the hype surrounding current issues. I'm also an expert witness on payments security. I like engaging on social media and regularly address global audiences on these topics as a keynote speaker or chair person.

I am a Non-Executive Director for cyber security firm Cognosec and payments innovator Comcarde. I chair the Advisory Board for mobile innovator Ensygnia and am proud to be a partner for the international Global Cyber Alliance. I am an Advisor and Ambassador for the Emerging Payments Association and you'll find me on the City AM FinTech Most Influential Power List, the City AM Powerful Women in the City List, the Richtopia Top 100 Most Influential People in Fintech and the Innotribe Femtech Leaders List. Tripwire nominated me "Top Influencer in Security To Follow on Twitter" in January 2015, CEOWorld Magazine nominated me Top Chief Security Officer to Follow on Twitter in April 2014, I am the Merchant Payments Ecosystem Acquiring Personality of the Year 2013, the SC Magazine Information Security Person of the Year 2012 and am an InfoSecurity Europe Hall of Fame alumni since 2011. I was voted to the Top 10 Most Influential People in Information Security by SC Magazine & ISC2 in 2010 and have served on the PCI SSC Board of Advisors for 4 years and am a Fellow of the British Computer Society.

I have previously worked for Barclaycard, Santander, Abbey National, Oracle Corp. and Unisys. My clients span industry sectors, including financial services, fintech, retail, legal, consulting, information security and technology.

I'm interested in anything digital and I love cars.
