Dr Robert (Bob) Nowill

Dr Robert Nowill’s mother worked at Bletchley Park in World War II running the Bomb decryption machine devised by Alan Turning.  But he ended up at the son of Bletchley, the Government Communications Head Quarters (GCHQ) and had a career as an IT security expert there and at BT by chance rather than by design. Today he took time out to talk to Richard Sharpe about his life and how he now works to try to bridge the skills gap between the pool of talent available to combat cyber security issues and the need for more expertise to achieve higher security.
