Adam Bridge has been appointed Head of Response at leading cyber security consultancy, Context Information Security.
Bridge brings a breadth and depth of technical understanding across a wide-range of incident response specialisms, developed in both academia and professional roles. He will be responsible for ensuring the Context Response team delivers on helping clients to recover from major breaches and put in place effective network security capabilities to detect and respond to sophisticated cyber attacks.
Bridge first joined Context in December 2014 as a Lead Intrusion Analyst within Response department, to carry out analysis of network traffic and digital media to identify malicious or suspicious activity. He applies his incident response and incident management experience to deliver an intelligence-led, co-ordinated and comprehensive customer engagement. Academically, Bridge has a Master’s Degree in Forensic Computing and is now working in his own time, towards his PhD in Computing, focusing on memory forensics.
“It is great to have someone with Adam’s passion and knowledge of cyber security to head up our Response team,” said Mark Raeburn, CEO at Context Information Security. “There is growing demand for response services and under his leadership we plan to expand our resources to address the rapidly changing threat landscape.”
“With the threat of sophisticated and damaging cyber attacks on the rise, all organisations are beginning to realise that they must be prepared to face the challenges of responding to a cyber-incident. From recognising an incident, we can then rapidly plan a highly effective approach to remediate the issue and avoid further damage and cost,” said Adam Bridge.
