Having managed elite security teams at the European Space Agency, HP and Fujitsu Chris Woods was in January 2016 an established corporate Artificial Intelligence and Cyber Security expert. But then his world changed. Following a mid life crisis Chris has, with the help of the Cyber London Accelerator, become an entrepreneur, and turned his expertise into CyberSparta, a very fast growing business utilising AI to address Cyber Security.
During this roller coaster ride Chris has learnt the hard way, and in some cases the easy way through the accelerator, masses about developing innovative products and services quickly to meet the rapidly growing demands of an extremely high growth sector. And he is now sharing that knowledge, and developing it further, as a mentor to yet more cyber security companies being developed by the accelerator – which has launched over 40 different cyber security companies and now has another 8 going through the programme.
