Endless Surprises

Just back from speaking at the Irish Software Association's annual conference in Dublin, to discover that my old friend, Ed Gibson, has been appointed as the new Microsoft Chief Security Advisor in the UK, to replace the energetic and affable Stuart Okin, who went to Accenture at Christmas.

Sol Gradman of the High Tech CEO Forum, Minister Michael Ahern TD and Simon Moores

Ed began his FBI career in 1985 as a Special Agent, tackling cross border organised and white-collar crime, terrorist financing and fraud in the financial, illegal drug and healthcare sectors. As a Supervisory Special Agent between 1995 and 2000, he was a nationally recognised expert in asset tracing and confiscation, money laundering, intellectual property theft and financial crime. From 1993 to 1995, as a Special Assistant United States Attorney, he prosecuted federal money laundering and asset-conviscation cases for the FBI.

Well done Ed. This put's a whole new slant on Microsoft's eCrime strategy!
