After more than 20 years working in the security and intelligence sector, I made the transition to the financial sector, starting my career at the BIS in early 2016. I was immediately impressed with the Bank's commitment to supporting my team's development and the implementation of an overall BIS cyber security strategy. The Bank encourages its employees to leverage their previous practical experience in their current roles. In that regard, I am able to innovate using leading edge cyber security tools and my team regularly interacts with other cyber security experts both within the central bank community and beyond.
