The Cyber Risk Management Group (CRMG) welcomes Dan Rycroft to the team as Delivery Director. Dan brings with him a wealth of experience from various IT Management and Cybersecurity management roles.
Dan’s role is all about achieving consistent, repeatable, and predictable delivery which meets and exceeds the high expectations of CRMG’s customers. Dan’s philosophy is to “get the basics right every time”, which usually starts with a structure of work which aligns tightly with the customer’s objectives and expectations but is flexible enough to accommodate change. He also advocates working hard on the ‘softer’ aspects of customer engagements – to forge effective relationships early in a world in which no two people are the same.
Dan joined CRMG from DXC Technology (the company resulting from the merger of CSC and HPE ES), where he led the UKIIMEA Governance and Customer Compliance function, being responsible for circa 100 Account Security Officers and supporting staff. His previous role was as Head of Cyber Operations for CSC in the UK.
Dan has held a variety of management positions in IT Service Delivery and New Business. He was CSC’s Delivery Director for National Grid, being responsible for the hosting and management of National Grid’s server and end user estates. Prior to that he was CSC’s Delivery Director for its Retail, Consumer and Technology sector following a role as Head of Infrastructure New Business for the UK.
On joining CRMG, Dan said “I’m really excited to be joining CRMG during this time, as it develops its position in the market through innovative partnerships and services. CRMG has a great philosophy and an outstanding team, bringing to bear its wealth of expertise in a pragmatic, customer-oriented way. I feel there’s much I can contribute to CRMG’s success and lots I can learn along the way.”
Dan is working with a portfolio of consultants who have many years’ experience in cybersecurity and information risk across many industries from government, retail, finance, insurance & many others. CRMG pride themselves on delivering pragmatic approaches, with people who know how to successfully implement, manage and lead at CISO-level to protect their clients from current and emerging cyber threats.
CRMG’s Co-Founder & Director, Nick Frost commented “We brought Dan onto the CRMG team, as we know there is no challenge or situation that he can’t handle, having experience on projects of all sizes. Dan brings with him a huge amount of expertise, experience and specialisation in cybersecurity project planning and management”.
