We evolve safety procedures and protocols, providing security policy management solutions and services to Measure, Manage and Monitor cyber risk and guard against cyber attacks.
Our Vision, Mission and Values
Following 8 years in the Royal Signals, Nick spent three years with Logica Space and Defence on projects such as the Logica Computer Security Evaluation Facility.
He founded Strategic Thought Group (STG) in 1987 providing services to organisations deploying enterprise software solutions across a wide range of sectors including government, defence, retail, transport and telecoms.
Based on their experience STG developed Active Risk Manager (ARM) that was purchased by an impressive number of blue chip corporations such as Nestle, Tfl, AMEC, RTZ, MOD, BAe Systems and Lockheed Martin who used ARM to manage risk on large projects and programs, for example the F35 / Joint Strike Fighter development.
Nick then founded Policy Monitor, which is developing a solution to address the cyber security issues faced by both large and small organizations. CSPM was thus created to develop and deliver a cloud based solution that enables organisations to define and implement their security policy, audit compliance and respond effectively in the event of a Cyber security attack.
Dave has over 35 years’ sales, operational and executive thought leadership experience with delivering Data (AI) powered solutions across global financial services, media, retail, telco and government clients. He worked with innovative companies, including: Digital, Computer Associates, BEA Systems, SunGard, Boston Consulting Group, IBM and Actian. Dave enjoys a diversified network of business colleagues, social friends and great contacts.
Outside work, Dave’s passions revolve around anything and everything to do with a ball and an engine. He is a rugby coach, has raced motorcycles and travelled the world following motorsport (he says when his long-suffering wife and two sporty teenage sons allow him – or wish to join him)!
Wendy comes from a broad humanitarian background with a Masters in Art Psychotherapy and career experience in fields such as education, art, government and charity-sector communications, PR and mental health. She brings a diverse skill-set to her work and has over seven years of experience engaging directly with clients and stakeholders.
Since joining the team, he has been primarily working with Java, Apache Camel, and SQL to support the ongoing development of CSPM, providing solutions for its integration framework.
He first started programming during his A level computer science, where he learned Python and continued developing his skills by undertaking additional projects during university.
Eager to kick off his career in programming, Peter spent his time post-graduation engaging with specialist recruitment and training in coding languages, his interest stemming from work he did with MATLAB and C++ as part of his degree. As a Mathematics graduate from the University of Birmingham specializing in Quantum Mechanics and Numerical Methods, Peter was eager to use his logistical skills to carry him through his training, and become a valuable asset to the Policy Monitor development team.
Joel joined Diegesis in 2019 after being introduced to programming during his time at Cambridge, and has worked on various projects including migrating statistical systems between operating systems, developing an in-house application renovation solution, and porting C code from 32 to 64 bit.
In his free time, he enjoys playing the guitar and a trip into nature.
Etienne joined the company in March 2022 after spending a year teaching himself to code with ambition of becoming a software developer, having previously worked in the film industry as a Post-Production Editor.
Since joining the CSPM team, Etienne has worked on the implementation of cybersecurity courses as part of CSPM’s training modules, and maintains the Policy Monitor website.
Afterwards Ben worked for a year tutoring GCSE and A-level maths, during which he completed an online python coding course. This encouraged him to pursue a career in his hobby of coding, leading him to join Diegesis in August 2022.
George studied mathematics at the University of Cambridge. During his degree he completed a number of computing projects which he very much enjoyed, and was inspired to pursue a career in software development.
After two years’ contracting work with the ONS, George joined the CSPM development team, taking on a fresh tech stack as well as bringing a wealth of database management experience with him.
Charlotte first came into contact with programming during her Mathematics degree at Cardiff University, where Python was an integral part of numerous small university projects.
Since joining us in December 2021, Charlotte has provided internal support for Diegesis’ systems and is now working on the development of CSPM.
