RANT Advisory Board

Simon Minton

Published: Wednesday 9th January 2019

Simon is a serial entrepreneur who, in between founding startups in high growth markets and bringing US cyber vendors into EMEA, spent 5 years advising a global investment bank on cyber security and cloud trends.

Currently, Simon is an evangelist for the ‘DevSecOps’ movement, where security crosses organisational and cultural boundaries to become everyone’s concern.

15 years in Cyber Security spent trying to patch holes, detect breaches and educate key stakeholders have taught Simon one thing; it’s much better to build software securely by design than to try to fix it once it’s in production.

In this world, developers collaborate with their peers to build software that is secure by design, automation minimises mistakes and ensures compliance, and the business can actually quantify and manage risk.
