    If you need a true security expert, hire somebody who has seen a breach first hand.

    In a world of ever more frequent and sophisticated cyber attacks, attitudes towards who ‘allowed’ a breach to occur are changing and historic blame culture is dissipating; the next generation of cyber security must feature Breach Response Specialists, and nobody comes with more expert knowledge than those who have been involved in – and resolved – an attack.
