The main reason I joined Home Retail Group was the reputation of its brands. We’ve got a long-standing heritage and brands that are well known and well respected across the UK, and I wanted to be a part of that. Now I’m Head of Cyber Security for the Group. That basically means I’m responsible for leading, directing and implementing our security strategy – making sure we have the controls in place to protect ourselves.
“I haven’t been here that long, so for me one of the great things about the role is that it exposes me to lots of different parts of the business, which helps me to learn and develop. It’s a great role in lots of ways though. The strategy itself is particularly interesting and exciting, because my department is part of a significant shift in the way the business works. We’re incorporating cyber security into our business strategy and shaping the future of the Group.”
“I think one of my greatest achievements here so far has been raising the profile of the security department. Engaging with a range of stakeholders across the business, I’ve helped to get the word out about what we do and the vital role we play in the Group.”
