Cyber Security Partner, PwC United Kingdom

Colin leads our cyber security team in Scotland. Colin joined PwC UK from PwC NZ where he established a centre of excellence for cyber security which serves both public and private sector clients in New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, China and Japan. 

Colin has a diverse background in technology, with a mix of entrepreneurial, industry and advisory experience. Starting out as a software developer in the Oil & Gas sector, Colin went on to establish a computer forensics and investigations business. Upon selling the business Colin joined PwC NZ as a partner and the cyber security practice leader in New Zealand.

Over the years Colin has built up his cyber security experience by working with clients in both the public and private sector on technology transformation projects, advising on strategy, operations and technology risk. Colin has also been asked to take on interim CIO and CISO roles at a number of our clients in financial services, telecommunications and utilities sectors. The experience has shaped Colin as a consultant and advisor, taking a practical and pragmatic approach to cyber security solutions.

Colin is a cyber security all-rounder. He is proficient in advising boards and C-suites on the implications of cyber risks, but equally able in performing technical work.
