Rory is a Senior Manager for Ernst & Young in Edinburgh, where he has focused on Information Security for the last 9 years. He manages large scale security programmes, including global attack & penetration engagements, privacy and security assessments, incident response and fraud and forensic investigations, with a key focus on appropriate controls across the enterprise - taking a 'holistic' view of security and resilience which translates directly to practical cost effective security solutions.
He presents regularly on Ethical Hacking, Online Fraud, Enterprise Governance, Risks and Threats and other Information Security topics and has published security articles for business readers in the Financial Times and other journals.
He is also the chair of the Scottish Branch of the Institute of Information Security Professionals (IISP) and Vice President of ISACA Scotland and sits on the Operations Committee of the Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers (CREST), all of which enable his other roles as security mentor and practical security evangelist.
