In his spare time Glen is still an active member of the RAF Reserve having completed two operational tours abroad, one in 2014 to Afghanistan as part of Op HERRICK and again in 2018 to Cyprus as part of Op SHADER. Most recently he has been deployed to Op RESCRIPT the UK Government response to COVID-19, during which he was a Mobile Testing Unit Commander running testing sites in the East of England. When he is not doing this, he is an advocate for all things Cyber Security and especially getting the basics right, as from the basics comes good security!
