Meet the team

David Atkinson

Founder and Chief Executive Officer

David has over fifteen years’ experience working within the UK’s specialist military units and government environments, where he was the first cyber operative. During David’s time within government and whilst working alongside CISOs, he realised current approaches to cyber defence were flawed and that new technology was needed. David has brought together a team of experts that have built a truly unique cyber defence platform. His sense of camaraderie, instilled by his military background, has created a collaborative working culture, nurtured by an extremely bright, dedicated and passionate team.
