Jim’s deep insights and experience will be hugely valuable as we take this exciting next step in our evolution as the leading technology and talent solutions group. Jim’s role will be predominantly externally focused, establishing a virtual CISO practice early in the year as an additional service to our clients. We have all witnessed the global growth in competition between businesses for cyber skills, so we expect this dedicated virtual practice to be much in demand.”

On his appointment as Global CISO for the Group, Jim Tiller said:

“I am thrilled to be taking up this position at Harvey Nash Group, who are recognised globally as leaders in technology and talent solutions. With such an acceleration in the development of digital services and channels through the pandemic, cybersecurity is of the utmost priority for organisations across sectors. The opportunity to support clients in this through the provision of a virtual CISO practice is an exciting prospect and I can’t wait to start developing solutions to meet all their varied needs and requirements.”
