He recognises the importance of balancing good security practices against enterprise agility and innovation and works closely with business stakeholders to achieve this balance both effectively and collaboratively, promoting security as a business-enabler rather than an impediment to business development. Similarly, recognising the power of the people in enabling organisations to remain safe and secure is seen by Paul as critical to the success of any security programme. Outside of the enterprise, Paul is keen to instil security situational awareness in children at an early age and volunteers as a Child Internet Safety ambassador, as well as promoting STEM and Information Security as a career path.
