Dr. Jessica Barker
J L Barker Ltd
With a background in sociology and civic design, Jessica specialises in the human side of cyber security. Running her own company, J L Barker Ltd, she is engaged by FTSE100 companies, central government and SMEs across the defence, health, financial and retail sectors to advise organisations how they can keep their information safe while getting the most out of it. Jessica’s consultancy work involves leading and delivering information security audits, from which she develops roadmaps which take organisations on a journey of improved cyber security maturity. Jessica also specialises in learning and development packages which raise cyber security awareness and, using an approach rooted in behavioural economics, change behaviours to address the challenge of cyber security’s biggest weakness: the human element.
Jessica regularly delivers thought-provoking and engaging presentations at corporate events as well as practitioner and academic conferences.
