- "Stuart is immensely professional, very knowledgeable, flexible, and working with him has given us the confidence as a business that we are operating safely and securely when it comes to our data processing and handling. Highly recommend working with him." - "I have known Stuart for around 20 years and he was first on the list when setting up my new SaaS insight business. I knew I would be dealing with sensitive data, and blue chip clients, and so needed to make sure my processes and infrastructure would satisfy the highest level of scrutiny. Stuart made the whole process of getting up to scratch appear easy, when I am well aware of the complexities involved. I would recommended him to anyone embarking on a similar journey." - "When we needed to review data security risks associated with our new PAYE application, we engaged UKDataSecure to run a high-level risk review workshop. The workshop met all of our expectations and UKDataSecure's recommendations for risk mitigation and remediation provided us with a list of tangible improvements to make before our new application goes live. Following the success of the initial risk workshop we have now engaged UKDataSecure to facilitate a quarterly Security Board, and to provide us with on-going data security consultancy services, to ensure that we maintain our security at the highest levels in an evolving risk landscape." - "I have worked with Stuart over a number of years during his tenure as chair of the UK Merchants PCI DSS Working Group and more recently with him supporting our improvement programme at Carnival UK. He is an extremely competent programme manager and security professional, with a proven track record of delivering and influencing at senior levels across the retail sector for many years. He is articulate, personable and reliable - and above all easy to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend him. "
