Ian Maxted (@Ian44CON) is a former TigerScheme penetration tester and trainer. Using his experience in the information security world, coupled with a good underpinning knowledge of fraud and criminal behaviours, Ian focuses on the biggest weakness in any organisation and its people. Working as a senior leader, mentor and coach, Ian has experience in operating in command and control situations, offering both strategic and tactical leadership. This combination of skills has resulted in an ability to troubleshoot difficult challenges under pressure. A firm believer that prevention is better than the cure, he always seeks ways to proactively reduce risk and unnecessary demand, allowing the organisation to focus on delivering the capability or service that makes it unique.
Ian heads up crew operations for 44CON, the UK's premier information security conference, and provides product evaluation for Cortex Insight (one of our premium event sponsors).
