Title: Building a Community SOC

Speaker: Tim Charrot – UK Cyber Security Forum

Location: University of Worcester, Room EE1107 (Cotswold Suite B)

Date: 22nd October 2019

Time: 18:30 for 19:00

Tim Charrot has had a varied 20-year career in the cyber security industry. He started as a security researcher for the MOD, where his role included design and delivery of the first IT Health Check training courses.  After this he joined @stake Inc, delivering security testing for customers across Europe, including some of the earliest GSM / WAP service offerings.  Returning to the UK, he took on a role managing QinetiQ’s managed security services support team and built a commercial incident response capability.  His next change of direction was to join a US security software vendor as a senior consultant in their European division.  He also successfully built and ran specialist public sector consulting teams at Serco and HP.

In 2011 Tim founded his own managed security services company, which was rapidly acquired after two years successful trading. A further acquisition found Tim at NCC Group, where he was appointed global CISO, with the awesome responsibility of keeping one of the world’s biggest pen testing teams in line!  Tim is now a director at UK Cyber Security Forum and CIO at IASME, where he is focused on using his experience to mentor the next generation of security experts.
