Andy Beverley

An experienced and innovative IT and Communications engineer, Andy graduated with a first-class honours in Computer Systems from the University of Salford. He spent the first 10 years of his career as an engineering officer in the Royal Navy, gaining extensive experience of service delivery, often in demanding circumstances. His naval career was spent in a wide variety of positions, from heading-up the IT department of an aircraft career, to implementing critical communications systems ashore in support of military operations. During his time as an engineer in the Royal Navy he learnt intimately the challenges of information security, not just technically, but also more importantly the process and people aspect. He realised that whilst there were many technical solutions, there was a big gap in the market for software to manage information security and ensure its robust and effective organisation and processes. On leaving the Navy, he used this knowledge and awareness to partner with other professionals in the industry to set up InfoSaaS. Andy has been involved in a number of other tech start-ups, including obtaining ISO27001 for those companies. Using InfoSaaS within these organisations significantly improved certification results and provided an opportunity to refine and enhance the solution's functionality.
