Security Empowerment Consultant, Idrach Ltd
Wendy Goucher is an information security consultant with Idrach Ltd specializing in the staff operational interface in business information security. Her unconventional insight comes from her background in Psychology, Sociology, Management and Economics. This means that her approach is, fundamentally, to try and understand why people carry out their business in an insecure way; and then work with organisations to reduce their risk while allowing, as far as possible, established business practice. She writes a monthly column for Computer Fraud and Security magazine and is carrying out postgraduate research with The University of Strathclyde. Wendy is a Member of the British Computer Society and an Associate Member of the Institute of Information Security Professionals.
