Bill is one of the world’s top campaigners for digital ethics and founder of The Crisis Team – a digital era crisis management firm, where working alongside the UK’s top cyberlaw experts, Bill and his team help firms mitigate against, prepare for and, if necessary, deal with the impact of data breaches.
A former global leader for IBM’s Financial Services Sector and cloud strategist for UKCloud, the fastest growing privately held tech firm in Europe and an SMB that is the UK’s leading govtech player, Bill has expertise in everything from fintech to govtech, working for firms large and small.
He balances his corporate background and his work as a judge on the UK Cloud Awards, with his support for privacy and digital ethics. In addition to his campaigning, he helped Max Schrems complete the crowd funding to launch None of Your Business (NOYB.eu), the European NGO that is the centre of competence and enforcement for data privacy and which brought cases against all the tech giants on day one of GDPR.
One of the world’s top social influencers, Bill focuses on striking the right balance between digital transformation ‘changing the world’ (including cloud, AI, etc) and digital ethics ‘doing the right thing’ (including privacy, security, etc). As we move beyond the tech revolution and tech backlash, Bill has been in great demand, appearing widely in the press and as frequently as once a week on broadcast TV and Radio (more airtime than any other technologist in the UK) talking about the need for meaningful protection, as well as the need to maximise the overall economic and social benefit from technology.
