Security "coup" as cyber expert joins Wynyard Group

Wynyard extends its advanced crime analytics software solution into cyber-intelligence and information-driven security.

Wynyard Group has appointed Andrew France OBE, former Deputy Director of Cyber Defence Operations at British Intelligence Agency GCHQ to the position of Strategic Advisor Intelligence.

A technology and intelligence leader with a distinguished career, France spent the last years of his GCHQ career developing and delivering a national cyber defence strategy as part of a mission to protect the United Kingdom from cyber threats.

Sophisticated cyber threats have become increasingly prevalent and now top the list of concerns for Wynyard government and corporate customers around the world.

Wynyard Group Chief Executive Officer, Craig Richardson says Wynyard has responded by extending its advanced crime analytics software solution into cyber-intelligence and information-driven security.

“Our customers are increasingly concerned with managing risk, protecting sensitive data, intellectual property and critical computer-operated infrastructures against threats and disruption from organised crime syndicates and state-sponsored actors," he says.

Richardson says securing France was a coup for the company that has focused on attracting industry experts to help support its customers and advance its market leading technology.

“Andy has deep experience working with governments and private companies across the world to keep information, technology and critical national infrastructures safe," he adds.

"His risk management and intelligence experience will be invaluable to Wynyard and our customers.”

France joins a stable of industry talent now working with Wynyard including former Commander of the London Metropolitan Police Homicide and Serious Crime Group Dave Johnston, former Executive Assistant Director FBI Louis Grever and former Assistant Secretary at the US Office of Homeland Security Louis Quijas.
