Specialising in cyber security, Inter-generational digital safeguarding, and the psychology of technology, having left the police in 2017, Paul spent time as a trainer for law enforcement, government and private sector in digital investigation and cyber crime. Leading him to launch his own independent consultancy in cyber security and digital wellbeing, concentrating on both the security and mental health linked to the prevalence of technology.
Paul joined Dardan Security in September 2019 with two main objectives. To engage and assist clients with technological change, training, and security consultancy, but to also lead an internal digital transformation with the adoption of new technologies and systems.
