Paul Starr

Director & IT Security Consultant

Paul is a co-founder of sep2 and a Cyber Security Consultant with more than 12 years' experience in IT Security. Prior to sep2, Paul was the Technical Director at a leading IT Security company for over 4 years, seeing it through acquisitions in to a FTSE 100 ITO outsourcer. Paul managed and grew a team of 20+ people that enabled the organisation to become a leading player in the Support and Managed Services market. He supported a large customer base, with an equally large product and vendor set, supplying security projects across the entire life-cycle from pre-sales then to installation & consultancy then on to service management & support.

Paul's has a specialist's understanding of business strategy, governance, compliance, technical implementation and operating procedures. Customers have praised him not only for his dedication to delivering customer support at any time of the day/night ability but also his skill in understanding their organisations and protecting their businesses from cyber security risks.

After a number of years in High-Level Management as the Technical Director of an IT Security company within a FTSE 100 IT outsourcer, and in spite of demand to keep him at this level, Paul yearned to get back to his technical roots, roll the sleeves up and get hands on with his first love and enduring passion, Technology. Cue the inception of sep2.

Whilst Paul is a self-confessed workaholic, he finds time to be father to his son Joseph and daughter Elisabeth, with whom he enjoys head clearing country walks and cycling, as he hopes to mould the next generation of cyber security experts!
