Bristol Security Centre Evening Talks – 29th January 2013 2018-02-13T18:42:17+00:00

The centre will host a quarterly series of evening talks aimed at both staff, students and local industry in which we will have three short presentations by various stakeholders; followed by a retreat to a pub or restaurant. The aim of these evenings is to reinforce the extensive Cyber Security community within the local area, to provide a forum for various stakeholders to meet, and to provide exposure to real world issues to the staff and students of the University.

The overarching theme of the evenings will be the very broad church of expertise and backgrounds which needs to be brought to the table to solve problems in this space.

Next Evening: January 29th 2013 Time: 18.00

Location: Room 1.11, Merchant Venturers Building, Woodland Road, Bristol, BS8 1UB.

Speaker Biographies:

Chris Ensor joined GCHQ in 1989 after completing his degree in Microelectronics and Computing at University College of Wales Aberystwyth. He began his career in the department working on high assurance ‘compusec’ developments before turning his attention to more practical solutions to governments business needs, and in particular it’s secure use of the Internet. In order to encourage interoperable secure e-mail solutions he delivered a number of proof of concept systems which were deployed within UK Government and NATO, the latter being an entertaining trilateral effort with France and Germany. He has worked in CESG, GCHQ’s Information Security arm for over 20 years. He is now Head of Profession at GCHQ for Information Assurance and has responsibility for developing CESG’s role as the National Technical Authority. One of his many objectives is GCHQ’s Strategic engagement with Academia.
