LONDON, 6th SEPTEMBER 2016 – BeCyberSure today announced the appointment of Tim Watts OBE as a Consultant and Senior Advisor. He brings to BeCyberSure and the SME sector 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 across the globe, in support of senior decision makers, military operations and defence business.
As the British Army’s Signal Officer-in-Chief, Tim Watts was its top communications professional and head of 9,000 technical military experts. He has managed the Ministry of Defence’s multi-billion-pound global information infrastructure capabilities, run its IT and communications college, directed a large, complex C4I programme in the Middle East, and has also held senior appointments in sub-Saharan Africa.
Since leaving the military Tim has been in demand as a Senior Consultant in a range of IT, cyber and training disciplines, alongside his work in anti-corruption compliance and assisting with Army Board casework.
Tim Watts comments on his appointment:
“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, states:
“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.”
