Dave leads the Response and Advisory teams at Context, focusing on ensuring our services are relevant and valuable, that the tools and methodologies used are at the cutting edge, and that the company has the best people performing to the highest possible standards. Context’s Response and Advisory services include incident response and investigation, managed detection and response, threat assessment, incident preparedness, and technical and board advice to help improve organisations’ ability to protect, detect, respond, and recover from sophisticated cyber attacks.
I enjoy solving complex problems to help manage threats and risks and have worked in cyber and information security since 2002. Starting my career working in security architecture and consultancy for a large system integrator, I have always been passionate about understanding technology’s role in cyber to help maximise good and reduce any potential harm. Some of the most rewarding things I’ve been involved with include leading large scale cyber security transformation projects, helping businesses respond to and recover from breaches, and technology and organisational design to help senior executives understand and manage their cyber threats and risks.
I am passionate about working on big things that matter and make an impact including developing and supporting the people that work here to become experts in their fields.
