Graham Cluley has been at the forefront of cybersecurity for over 20 years, since before most organisations had even heard of it. He worked as a programmer, writing the first ever version of Dr Solomon’s Anti-Virus Toolkit for Windows. Since then he has been employed in senior roles by Sophos and McAfee and is now a respected blogger and consultant in the area.
Having started out programming, Graham joined one of the first large computer security companies, Dr Solomon’s, as their chief Windows anti-virus programmer. He stayed with the company, taking on international strategic roles before joining McAfee when the security giant bought Dr Solomon’s. Graham then moved to Sophos, one of the world’s biggest business cybersecurity companies as Head of Corporate Communications / Senior Technology Consultant and where he also became the editor of the company’s Naked Security website.
Graham’s blogs and Twitter feed are widely praised as being at the forefront of news and information on the rapidly changing world of digital and cybersecurity. From malicious attacks to data theft, corporate espionage to mischief-making and campaigning exposés, he considers the hype and the reality of the threats to nations, organisations and individuals and why we should all take our security more seriously.
As well as being an independent blogger and talking to the media about computer security issues, Graham has given talks around the world at events such as RSA, Infosec, Web Summit, EICAR, AVAR, ICSA, ISSA, Virus Bulletin, Ja.net, Campus Party and the European Internet Security Forum.
Graham Cluley was inducted into the InfoSecurity Europe Hall of Fame in 2011, and was given an honorary mention in the “10 Greatest Britons in IT History” for his contribution as a leading authority in internet security.
