I’m joining Mastercard

I’m pleased to announce that Mastercard has offered me the opportunity to take the next step in my cybersecurity career – joining them in the fight to block criminals from making money from cybercrime.

Mastercard has an amazing reach across the globe – tens of millions of merchants, thousands of banks and billions of cardholders look to them to make sure cashless payments are made securely, and of course, criminals look for weaknesses and ways to exploit the global economy to make money.

Given around $600 billion of the $1.5 trillion dollars generated by cybercrime is used to further criminal activity – solving this is a problem I am beyond passionate about. Having spent the last 20 years in cybersecurity “protecting secrets”, getting closer to the problem of criminal funding is very exciting.

My new role merges standards, fraud intelligence, and cybersecurity – and I am also excited to be taking on responsibility for the infamous Mastercard DigiSec Lab.

game on!
