In this Chief's Brief, we were privileged to hear more about Tammy’s career. We also learned about her passion for more responsible cybersecurity being made available to all organisations regardless of size or sector – her innovative and fascinating “Project Smart Robin”.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the session planned for this time was unable to go ahead. We were very pleased (and lucky) that Peter Yapp, a very good friend of SASIG and a consummate professional, was able to take to the stage with no preparation and agreed to take part in a Chief's Brief with Martin. Please enjoy the recording of this impromptu but fascinating session.
While teaching at GCHQ’s cyber school, James realised traditional training methods suited neither the people nor the pace of cybersecurity. He developed the Immersive Labs platform to, for the first time, measure human cyber abilities, map them to risk, and optimise them in line with security strategy. We were privileged to hear more about James' career and views on the threat landscape.
The UK Cyber Security Council is the self-regulatory body for the UK's cyber security profession.

We are privileged to hear from NPCC’s National Cybercrime Programme Lead, Detective Chief Superintendent Andrew Gould, as he shares how he learned about effective crisis management and incident response through his policing career in counter-terrorism and cybercrime. Andrew has extensive experience of crisis management and leading major covert operations and investigations. He has led the police response to high-profile and large-scale terrorist attacks, including the terrorist attacks on the Algerian BP Gas Plant and Fusilier Lee Rigby in 2013, and cyber attacks such as WannaCry in 2017, as well as many other less high-profile incidents and operations. Drawing on these experiences, Andrew talks about the lessons he has learned about effective crisis management and incident response with a particular focus on leadership resilience – lessons that are directly applicable to any organisation in any crisis.
