Norwich-based security consultancy, Cyberscale, has appointed Professor Cameron ‘Buck’ Rogers as the first member its newly-established advisory board.
He was previously CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) at the Bank of England, Global Head of Resilience Risk at HSBC and latterly and Head of Cyber and Information Security at BAE Systems.
The consultancy says that Rogers brings “a wealth of skills and knowledge to CyberScale at a crucial time in the next chapter of the company’s growth and development”.
Darren Chapman, founder and Principal Consultant at CyberScale, said: “This is a key appointment at CyberScale, and comes at a pivotal time for us as we expand our footprint, particularly across the SMB (small and medium business) space.
“The focus of Buck’s role will be to help us ensure that we continue to provide both the most relevant, and highest impact security services to our current and future clients.
“His knowledge, experience and contacts in the industry will be invaluable as he helps us optimise our portfolio of Cyber & Information Security Services as well as mentoring our already skilled and experienced team”.
Rogers said: “Having experienced first-hand the quality of CyberScale’s work and their commitment to making vital cyber security services accessible to any type of business, I was delighted to accept the opportunity to help.
“I was excited by the company’s new initiatives in helping small and medium businesses to face up to the challenge of cyber security when they don’t have access to the same resources as larger enterprises.”
Rogers’ Professorship is in Cyber Security and Digital Innovation at Gloucestershire University. Outside of his Professorship, Buck is a Fellow of CREST (Council for Ethical Security Testers).
Buck also provides cyber expertise to the International Monetary Fund, an agency of the UN, where Buck helps Countries to understand and regulate Cyber risk.
He sits on the expert panel for Regulation Technology Associates and is cyber security advisor to Cyb3r Operations, a cyber intelligence company.
