About the Speaker

Paul Mackenzie | Head of Security


The rising tide floats all boats

The UK’s Telecommunications Security Act is driving security focus and investment across our industry and while the obligations of the law and the Security Code of Practice apply equally to all operators the means to address them does not. Paul will share his perspective on preparation for the Telecoms Security Act and why Tier 2 ISPs must neither be complacent with regard to their own preparations, nor be shy at shouldering their way to a seat at the top table with regard to threat intelligence sharing.

Paul McKenzie, Head of SecurityPaul has worked with leading operators and suppliers, in fixed line, mobile, and M2M services such as Smart Metering for over 40 years. He has been working with Tier 1 and Tier 2 Operators on the impact and remediation work required to comply with the Telecom Security Act since consultation with NCSC and UK Government on the proposals began in 2020.
