Barry Cryer

Founder and Managing Director, Kevin Hawkins established H2 Cyber Risk Advisory Services in 2016, as a specialist cyber security and data protection company that focuses on providing innovative and robust security solutions to the UK SME sector.

Kevin started in Information Security at the MOD at a time when IT and databases were in their infancy.  He was therefore in on the ground floor and got a start in what was then IT Security as early as the late 1980s.  

He has since worked for HP/HPE, CSC and Symantec.  He has been involved in and led many major cyber security projects in the public and private sectors, focusing on major Government departments and Fortune 500 companies.  

He designed and commissioned the first Security Operations Centre for the FCO, carried out several projects for the MOD, led the security team designing the security system for the Passport Office, as well as lead security projects for Barclays and Lloyds amongst others.  

In 2013 HP asked him to go to the Middle East to set up a Cyber Security team covering the UAE, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.  With a standing start of just three people, he grew the team to 24 before the merger between HPE and CSC.  

On returning to the UK, he set up H2 alongside Bob Hay who returned from the Middle East at the same time.
