Bill’s work has also directly led to the creation of three highly successful Edinburgh-based spin-out companies: Zonefox, Symphonic Trust and Cyan Forensics.
Bill regularly appears on TV and radio across the world discussing Cyber Security and technology, and has an extensive track record of public engagement, including in supporting discussions around the key issues within Cyber Security and for enhanced health and social care.
Bill outlines “The OBE provides recognition of the great work of all those involved, and how much my university, my school and the city has provided in supporting our work. Overall we have never had any barriers placed in our way, and have always received the required support, and the freedom, to develop our vision. We hope that our work can continue to provide both economic and social impacts, and show that Cyber Security can provide us with ways to build new infrastructures, which are inclusive and respect the rights of the individuals, while also protecting our societies.”
