Special guest

Co-founder of Enarx project (https://enarx.io).

I specialise in security and risk management within systems - large or small, local or distributed - and considering how different components, working together, can increase or reduce the security and resilience of the systems they comprise. Establishing and managing trust between systems, and understanding what that does to the functionality they are supposed to be providing, is a particular interest.

A key principle that I always try to advocate is pragmatism: we, as security professionals, need to architect, design, create and operate systems which are usable by real organisations, rather than systems which meet our ideals, but fail to address the needs of the people for whom we work.
