Q.  Tell us a bit about yourself. 

I’m a freelance writer for a number of newspapers and magazines. I’m based in Dublin and currently my right foot is four times the size of my left after I twisted it playing five-a-side football. That’s me in a nutshell.

Q. Tell us a little bit about the titles you write for and their interest in data security. 

I write for The Irish Times, Sunday Business Post and ComputerScope in the main, alongside a number of other print and online titles. Each will regularly include features that have a security focus of some kind. The Business Post’s “Computers in Business” supplement has a monthly “security watch” feature for instance, while the Times will cover cybersecurity, data privacy and related subjects almost every week. ComputerScope is aimed at IT professionals and there’s always news or features on security trends as well as new products or services related to the space.
