Fell into ICT Security as a follow on from "standard" security. Worked in local government for 5 years, specifying programs, checking standards, working towards ISO 17799. Liaising with 3rd party providers and other Government departments on best practice. Major projects include new infrastucture implementation after formation of department, and co-location project to new purpose built premises. Currently working in healthcare, writing, producing and updating policies, practices and procedures whilst working towards ISO17799 in a totally different environment. Semi-technical, useful for being a translator between engineers and users, with good working overview of legal UK & EU statutes. Ideally, would love to run my own Security Department and get the awareness right first time! Technology and gadget mad, hence the nickname!
