Ian Pinkstone

CEO and Founder - ITGL

Ian began his foray into the world of security in the early 80s from the other side of the desk, learning to hack the local polytechnic PDP-11 via his school’s RML 380Z and acoustic coupler. Choosing careers in academia followed by City risk consulting, it was some time before Ian returned to his first passion. In the early 2000s, aggrieved by the exponentiating rise in cyber criminality, he envisaged a security consultancy with the reach and insight to provide levels of mitigation that would all but extinguish the growing threat. Ian founded ITGL to be that consultancy, and although it has spread its expertise into other areas of technology, security has remained its central focus.
