The information security company BeCyberSure has appointed Tim Watts OBE as a Consultant and Senior Advisor. He brings to the cyber security firm more than 36 years of experience, working for the UK Ministry of Defence, the British Army and the United Nations. Tim is a specialist in delivering secure, resilient IT and communications, in support of senior decision makers, military operations and defence business.
As the British Army’s Signal Officer-in-Chief, Tim Watts was head of 9,000 technical military staff. He has managed the Ministry of Defence’s multi-billion-pound global information infrastructure, run its IT and communications college, directed a C4I programme in the Middle East, and has also held senior appointments in sub-Saharan Africa.
Since leaving the military Tim has been consulting in a range of IT, cyber and training disciplines, alongside his work in anti-corruption compliance and assisting with Army Board casework.
Tim Watts says: “Whether as standalone enterprises or as the vital supply chain for bigger things, SMEs are both the lifeblood of business and, from a cyber perspective, a weakness. BeCyberSure’s refreshing focus on supporting SMEs, with tailored, value-for-money services, is what attracted me and I am proud and excited to be part of this friendly and professional team.”
CEO of BeCyberSure, Andrew Taylor, adds: “We have assembled a team at BeCyberSure whose accumulative experience is unprecedented. The level of expertise we are bringing to SME organisations to secure their information and assets would be the envy of much larger organisations.”
