Lisa Forte began her career working in anti-piracy intelligence off the coast of Somalia trying to protect commercial shipping from attacks. She then moved into Counter-terrorism intelligence for a UK Government agency.
Whilst there Lisa researched the process of online radicalisation by terrorist groups and the risky social engineering process undertaken by terrorist recruiters.
Lisa then moved into one of the UK Police Cyber-Crime Units where she got to know the attackers’ mind sets and methodologies well. The unit dealt with serious cyber-crime cases working closely with agencies such as the FBI. Victim companies ranged from small to multi-national organisations and almost all the cases involved social engineering.
Lisa left in 2017 to start her own company, Red Goat Cyber Security LLP, with the goal of reflecting the techniques and methodologies actually being employed by hackers. They provide the only GCHQ certified social engineering training for staff, security testing and wargaming cyber-attack exercises to help organisations prepare for an attack.
Lisa is an experienced cyber-crime and security keynote speaker having spoken at major conferences around the world. Her storytelling style of talk has been described as “powerful and thought-provoking”. Lisa walks the audience through real cases she worked on to highlight the importance of all aspects of security. Lisa runs workshops and masterclasses at events as well as in-house staff training lunches. Her energy and enthusiasm for her subject leaves audiences inspired to take action.
