From the late 90’s Sarah has been grappling with the question, how can we get our businesses to take responsibility for security?  Starting her career in BT and then running a security awareness practice Sarah has developed and delivered security awareness strategies to a wide variety of businesses of sizes and sectors.


Frustrated with the slow progress in the human factor in security Sarah started Layer 8 Ltd.  At Layer 8 Ltd we represent the shift from an outdated belief that security professionals only ever tell employees how to behave.  Layer 8 now delivers culture and behaviour change programmes globally gaining success for our clients by enabling collaboration which drives the adoption of a more secure mindset.


A personal mission of Sarah’s is to upskill the global workforce in general cyber skills. It’s her belief that general cyber hygiene should not be the sole responsibility of security departments. Therefore Sarah works closely with membership organisations and other business to help spread awareness through their customer base.
