My role is to keep Jisc, its members and customers informed about the legal, policy and security issues around networks, networked services and data.
Over the past twenty years there have been many new laws relevant to Jisc’s services, from the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As Jisc innovates in its use of technology and data, we also need to lead understanding of how laws can guide the development of those activities.

Previously I ran the JANET-CERT and EuroCERT incident response teams.
