PRLog (Press Release) – Mar. 28, 2013 – BIRMINGHAM, West Midlands, U.K. — One of those new Directors will be Mike Gillespie, Managing Director of the Independent Security Consultancy, Advent IM Ltd.
“I am really excited to have been elected. I have so many ideas to share and am so thrilled to be able to be a part of the future of the Security Institute, which is in turn, the future of our profession.”
Mike is a relative newcomer and considered his chances of election to be quite slim, “I was so pleased at being nominated in the first place, it was quite unexpected and felt like I had achieved something, so to actually get elected is a privilege. I have been talking a lot about converging Information Assurance (IA) with the physical world and bringing cyber security to the forefront, but I will have to wait until I attend my first Director’s meeting in April and get my portfolio”
The Board of Director’s next business will be to elect a Chairman.
