He has excellent knowledge across many security areas and a professional positive attitude towards helping people understand and embrace information security.

4 David Campbell Industry Committee Member Colin was instrumental in organizing the Portugal Summit, and provided much valuable input to the Intra Gov't affairs working group. He will be a great asset to the Industry committee.
5 Rex Booth Industry Committee Member Colin has been an active participant in the Industry Committee since its inception in Portugal. He absolutely deserves to be an official member and we could certainly use his assistance!
