Kieren Lovell
Cybersecurity Associate

Kieren Lovell, a former naval Lieutenant Commander, heads up the computer emergency response team at the University of Cambridge - Europe's largest private IT network. He is now helping Metin Mitchell & Co's clients to test the resilience of their IT systems against cybersecurity risks, identifying talent issues and creating plans to improve security.

During his time with the British and Norwegian Naval Forces, he was responsible for testing Information Security (IS) procedures and exercising those skills within whole ship exercises. He has now set up hacking exercises between Tallinn University of Technology - a global leader in IT research - and the University of Cambridge and is applying the lessons learned to help corporates protect their organisations.

Kieren's particular expertise is communications - understanding the human aspect of IT security and how to motivate employees and partners to change their behaviours and reduce that risk. Also to influence and support at leadership levels.
