In this role, he makes sure that BT has the right policies and systems in place to keep the company’s assets – whether physical, logical or information – secure from attack. BT Security also works to actively counter cybercrime and fraud, and to minimise disruption to BT in the event of an incident. This includes BT's UK civil resilience obligations.
