Meet the Team

Kevin Borley

Kevin has been at the forefront of technology leadership, security and management best practice for 35 years, working intimately with an array of technology dependent Blue Chip and Mid Cap organisations across Europe, the USA and Asia Pac.

With 20yrs ‘hands on’ information security management experience, much of it gained as a CIO in the internet security world in Silicon Valley, Kevin has a unique perspective of what it takes to successfully manage risk in technology dependent organisations, who constantly strive to protect themselves, their services and their assets.

Recently spending time in the Aviation world and managing major technology change and risk programmes across a number of UK airports, he has gained significant experience in the complexities of protecting business critical services and infrastructure. He is an authority on Cyber Risk and Threat Management best practice and is frequently invited to speak at world leading events.

When not developing Assurity Systems' business interests, Kevin works with commercial stakeholders and educationalists to understand the implications and vulnerabilities arising from poor technology management practice, demonstrating how, if compromised, the lessons learned are embedded into their organisations.
