  • Prof. Alan Woodward ( @ProfWoodward ) - Alan is not only a subject matter expert in computing, computer security and the impact technology has on business but brings to his roles a very broad range of experience in business management, technical management and project management.
    Whilst he has particular expertise in covert communications, forensic computing and image/signal processing, Alan is primarily a particularly good communicator, be it with clients, staff or investors. He is known for his ability to communicate complex ideas in a simple, yet passionate manner. He not only publishes in the academic and trade journals but has articles in the national press and appears on TV and radio. Despite the length of his experience, his hands-on ability with emerging technologies contributes significantly to the respect he is repeatedly shown when he leads teams where technology is involved.
    Alan has been involved in some of the most significant advances in computer technology and, although he continues to work in industry, he is actively involved with academia as a visiting Professor in the Department of Computing which is part of the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Surrey.
    His achievements have resulted in him rising to become a Fellow of various institutions including British Computer Society, Institute of Physics and Royal Statistical Society.
