DR. PHILLIP KING-WILSON – FOUNDER & CEO
Phillip is the founder and Managing Director of Quantar/CyberEx Academy and is a Certified GDPR Practitioner and also a Certified ISO/IEC27001 Lead Auditor.
He has 22 years of experience in the cyber risk management sector, with a passion for the development of the Quantar products and services since 1998 and achieved the first US/PCT patent grant in 2005.
He has subsequently led R&D and product/service development of solutions for companies to value their cyber threats. The first product was created in 2003, with further products, backed up by additional patent protection, in 2005-2006 and which now form the main products of the company.
With the vision of offering unique methodologies and proprietary technologies in the provision of cyber threat valuation, Phillip has continued patent creation to the point that today no other company in a number of countries, including the U.S. and U.K., can offer such targeted and easy to use products for providing cyber threat financial valuations.
As the head of the company, he is responsible for the definition and the execution of the company strategy, messaging, and go-to-market plans. R&D and new product/service creation for cyber threat valuation is a focus for Phillip, who sees the opportunity to bring the disparate disciplines of GDPR Compliance, ISO/IEC 27001 and Cyber Valuations together to help organizations to better identify and manage data and cyber risks.
Phillip has extensive international management experience working across multiple sectors at all organizational levels. He has also a published author and has co-authored with world renowned academics from INSEAD Business School in France on the subject of strategic I.T. and internet threats.
In 2013, Phillip was invited to the University of South Florida as a visiting academic, to undertake cyber threat research in the Information Systems and Decision Sciences Department. He moved to Florida and researched the use of epidemiological models for cyber threat risk management and in cloud security until mid-2015. The output formed part of his latest academic paper, titled “Cyber risk analysis and valuation: a new combinatorial models and systems approach”, which was published in the International Journal for Business Continuity and Risk Management (September 2017, Vol 7, No. 2).
Phillip has a business law degree from the U.K., an MBA from Belgium and a doctorate in cyber risk management from France and the UK.
