Introduction

Picture of Ian
In 2016 I co-founded Cyan Forensics to commercialise new technolgy that helps law enforcement, social media and cloud companies find and block harmful content from paedophiles and terrorists. I'm really excited to be CEO of a company that has such a strong sense of purpose as well as enormous growth potential. Through this work I have also founded and now chair the Online Safety Tech Industry Association.
I've spent most of my career either working in or consulting for tech startups, focused on software, electronics and semiconductor. I am a Chartered Engineer, FEANI registered Engineer (Eur. Ing.), Saltire Fellow, and Member of the Institute of Directors. I also have an excellent academic background which includes a 1st class degree from Edinburgh University in Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, and my business education includes an Experiential MBA at Babson College in Boston, as well as time at MIT.
