Warner McCall Resilience appoints new Commercial Director as it expands its team

Warner McCall Resilience (WMR) is expanding its Bristol based team in response to the growing demand for its cyber security and resilience services. Isabel Thompson has been appointed as Commercial Director, after spending 14 years leading technology consulting and business development teams at KPMG. Isabel is joined by Niall Astowe, a Computer Science graduate with a passion for cyber security, who is starting his career as Junior Security Consultant.

Warner McCall Resilience are experts in their field, trusted by government departments and commercial clients to deal with a range of cyber threat actors from national states and cybercriminal organisations to individual hackers. Such experience has informed the consultancy’s approach to mitigating cyber threats, understanding that technical solutions alone are not enough and that only when an organisation considers cyber security as part of a holistic approach to risk can it become truly resilient.

Isabel comments “Each day we hear of new cyber attacks and data breaches that are impacting every size of organisation from the sole trader to the global corporate giants. It’s therefore an exciting time to be joining Warner McCall Resilience, working to help organisations build resilience to cyber threats, and to protect them from the financial, brand and reputational damage that cyber attacks can inflict”

Johnny Norris, CEO, of Warner McCall Resilience adds “We are delighted that Isabel and Niall have joined our growing team. Isabel’s commercial and consulting experience will help us further develop our offering, whilst Niall brings a thirst for knowledge that is essential in the ever-evolving cyber security space. These new appointments are part of our on-going growth strategy as we expand in response to growing demand.”
