He was also responsible for coordinating Visa Europe's approach to cardholder data breaches in Europe, and for the changes to the Visa Europe Compliance strategy through the creation of the Technology Innovation Programme which gave the very first PCI DSS compliance relief for EMV chip accepting merchants. In 2015 he went independent and currently provides cyber security risk consultancy services to a wide range of public and private companies. Colin has presented on Information Security at major events around the world, and has published a number of papers on security.
