Francis West

Francis is on a mission to inform and advise a million business owners on how to stay cyber safe, so they can maximise the advantages of technology whilst minimising the risks.

Having started his career in the African Army, Francis moved to the UK and built a million-pound IT support company. In both professions, his motivation has been to protect others from potentially destructive and
devastating threats.

Successes in that first IT business included redesigning a bespoke, cloud based, global recruitment platform and contributing to the design and launch of a remote desktop solution for Randstad.

Whilst providing managed security services for large enterprises, Francis realised there was a lack of information and support tailored to SMEs. In 2010, he launched Westtek Solutions, to educate SMEs on cyber vulnerability and provide a complete security service. This was followed by Security Everywhere, a partnership with Graeme Ison. They provide SMEs with 5 easy, affordable and comprehensive layers of Cyber Protection, within 24-

Francis’ expertise in his field is widely recognised. He sits on 5 Cyber Security Panels and is the Cyber Security National Lead for the FSB (Federation of Small Businesses).

As a mentor for CompTIA, he is also involved in educating the technology  gurus of the future.
