Andrew Rice

Security Strategist Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC

Andrew has worked in the field of information security for government, military, financial and telecoms organisations for over 25 years. He developed a holistic approach to security covering electronic, social, legal, physical, standards and audit which stood the organisations in good stead as various legal and standards (such as GDPR, ISO 270001, Basel II, SOX, PCI-DSS etc.) came into force.

Andrew is also a life/business coach, helping people and business achieve their goals. He branched into this as security is more about people than systems. It’s easy to implement technology but if the interaction with humans are wrong it won’t work.
It’s also more fun to see people motivated and happy as they achieve their goals. He is also a judge on the Peer Awards panel¬†and guest presenter on Coast 1079
