Cisco Security Advisory Services for EMEAR

Advisory Services in Cisco are being revolutionised and redefined to better meet the needs of this explosively expanding industry. As Senior Director for Cisco’s Security Advisory Services for EMEAR, Paul Docherty is integral to that process of reinvention and refinement.

Before joining Cisco through acquisition, Paul was a director and co-founder of Portcullis Computer Security Limited, a company which led the Information Security industry in the UK from its inception. In this capacity, he has spent three decades championing service excellence and promoting constant improvement and awareness, consistently working at the forefront of this industry as it has grown and developed. His commitment to excellence found him becoming a founding member of CREST, of which he remained a director until December 2016. He remains staunchly involved in many industry initiatives, constantly seeking to strengthen industry practices and standards, while driving innovation and expansion.

Paul believes strongly in the importance of individuals applying intelligence and subject matter knowledge. The talented team of gifted and experienced consultants built at Portcullis and expanded under Cisco continues to use these skills and diligence to develop, improve and progress services in the Information Security industry, just on a much larger scale under Cisco.
