Ricahard Bach

Assistant Director for Cyber Security at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills

From the age of eight, and inspired by the Enigma story, Richard wanted to break codes or catch spies. Appropriately, his chosen career path has been spent in the UK Government's security community. In earlier years he was a technical advisor on export controls, from where he moved into International

Relations, representing the UK's Information Assurance interests in the EU, the UN and the OECD. In a similar capacity in NATO he was one of the main architects behind NATO's Infosec Framework. For the last six years, Richard has brought his expertise to bear in cyber defence, and in late 2011he became head of planning and delivery for the Government's operational cyber defence posture for the London 2012 Olympics.
