Paul Chichester has worked in the UK Government Intelligence and Security community for nearly 30 years. He’s had a wide range of roles during that time, many of them having a cyber flavour (even before the word or the topic because popular!) and has been involved in every major UK Government cyber investigation from MOONLIGHT MAZE in the late 90s to the present day. In 2005 Paul was awarded the MBE for his ground-breaking contribution to the field of cyber security.
Paul is currently the Director of Operations at the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre where he is responsible for managing nationally significant cyber incidents (such as WannaCry) and ensuring UK Government understands and can counter a wide range of state and non-state threats.
