As an entrepreneur, Bill is the CEO of the Crisis Team, an elite group of cyber incident specialists that supports clients when they have cyber incidents. While most incident response firms focus on just the technical issues, they also cover the legal, reputational and social ones as well.
As a digital ethics campaigner, Bill focuses on striking the right balance between ‘meaningful protection’ (cybersecurity, privacy, digital ethics, etc) and ‘the maximization of economic and social value’ (AI, cloud, digital transformation, innovation, etc). He has collaborated on some of the largest privacy campaigns (such as the Schrems II case in the EU High Court that overturned Privacy Shield - the EU/US data-sharing treaty) and is an expert advisor to a number of law firms that are bringing large privacy cases in the UK.
And as an opinion leader, Bill appears almost weekly on TV and Radio (BBC, RT, etc) commenting on a range of business and technology stories - more broadcast airtime than any other technologist in the UK. He also writes regularly for business, finance and technical publications and is a frequent public speaker, appearing on panels at Infosec Europe, Blackhat Europe, PrivSec Global and Think Cybersecurity for Government as well as chairing the whole of Cloud World Forum. He will soon be speaking at Digital Transformation Expo. Bill has also been named as the world’s top expert/influencer for data privacy and security in Onalytica's 2021 "Who's Who in Data Management", and is ranked highly for cloud insights (Global Data listed him in the global cloud top ten while Onalytica had him at 35th for cloud - 2nd in EMEA).
