Lisa Forte

Partner at Red Goat Cyber Security

Red Goat Cyber Security provide security training programs, insider threat expertise and cyber crisis exercises for boards to prepare them for a cyber attack.

I run a YouTube security channel called Rebooting. I am a professional speaker, trainer and I design crisis scenarios to test the board's of large companies!

I love being creative and coming up with new solutions to old problems. I love working with other people and trying to help all people become more secure!

I start early. I have a coffee and read the news to get an idea of things that have happened. I look at the stock market and then I have a strategy meeting with my team. I have to manage many projects at one time and no day is ever the same. Once a week I spend time looking at my goals and targets and planning some new creative ideas that could work.

I studied all science subjects at school but ended up going to University to study Law and then do my Masters in Law also. I then worked in security for a maritime company - protecting ships from pirates. Then I worked for the UK police. First in counter terrorism and then in one of the cyber crime units. I started my own company in 2017.

I want to grow my company but also do more charity work too. I would like to work on some United Nations projects in the near future.

I love mountaineering so I enjoy being active and outdoors. I love horse riding and I play Polo too which has a great club / community behind it. I am also mad about space and rockets and engineering!
