Craig Archdeacon

Senior Information Security Consultant

My Security and Resilience career began whilst working for a large multi-national manufacturing company and IT service provider. In my role there, I was primarily focused on providing secure services to the UK public sector and defence, which helped shape my understanding of good risk management, the importance of security by design and protecting critical assets. Armed with my knowledge of what good looks like, I then spent a few years working in the automotive and transport sectors, helping businesses define and reach their information security, data protection and wider strategic goals.

By working across multiple public and private sector accounts, with many companies, in a number of exciting roles, I was able to develop a varied skill set; which enabled me to look wider than just keeping the bad guys out, but actually realise that good security governance is directly attributed to wider business success and could act as a spring board to unlock lucrative commercial opportunities and act as that competitive differentiator!

I’ve been responsible for building and integrating management systems, from GDPR through ISO27001 to ISO9001 and more, and with that comes experience of seeing how these can be applied practically and pragmatically and demonstrate that good cyber hygiene or quality control isn't the inhibitor that it is often perceived to be.

My experience has been further supplemented with professional certifications, and as such I’m a Certified Information Security Manager (CISM), ISO27001 Lead Auditor, Cyber Essentials Plus Auditor, PCI-DSS Implementer and GDPR Practitioner among others.

I have an active interest in Information Security, Business Resilience, Data Protection and Compliance but my passion is helping people overcome problems to achieve their goals. I find no better satisfaction than knowing that I have contributed to their success, be it instilling a security-aware culture , preventing them coming to harm at the hands of cybercriminals or ensuring the increased prosperity and longevity of their business for years to come.
