Colin has for over 20 years led the thinking on information security, ‘cyber security’ and payments security and to address the threats. He delivers and promotes business protection and growth through workable risk management solutions.
Colin looks for ways to de-scope solutions from PCI DSS, e.g. where a simple CHIP&PIN may be appropriate. At Visa and at UK Payments, Colin set the agenda to move away from more theoretical protection towards solutions that actually work in the real world for banks and merchants; and yet cost-effectively protect them from data-breach risks.
‘Cyber’, and Payment security is now the focus of European legislators, where Colin stays ahead of EU thinking by working with senior officials and politicians in governments in order to guide their future policy and regulatory thinking.
