Mike Bailey

Head of Marketing

I have been lucky to have worked in marketing roles across several countries and cultures. Consequently, it is rare that client demands surprise me! As Head of Marketing my role is to understand what our clients' value in their information security programmes and demonstrate that we can deliver this to them. A big sport and dog lover, I am also an hispanophile having lived and worked in Spain for 14 years. Always available but calls during Real Madrid games may go to voicemail..

Security tip: The number of people in your security team is equal to the number of people in your company multiplied by their social media accounts.
