About Lisa Forte

Lisa began her career working in anti-piracy intelligence off the coast of Somalia before moving into Counter-terrorism intelligence for a UK Government agency. She led research into the process of online radicalisation by terrorist groups. This included studying how social media algorithms could be exploited for radicalisation as well as looking at the lengthy and risky social engineering process undertaken by terrorist recruiters. Having always been technically minded Lisa then moved into one of the UK Police Cyber-Crime Units where she got to know the attackers’ mind sets and methodologies well. The unit dealt with serious cyber-crime cases working closely with international law enforcement agencies such as the FBI. Victim companies ranged from small to multi-national organisations and almost all the cases involved social engineering. Lisa left in 2017 to start her own company, Red Goat Cyber Security LLP, with the goal of reflecting the techniques and methodologies actually being employed by hackers. They provide GCHQ certified social engineering awareness training for staff and wargaming cyber-attacks to help organisations prepare for an attack. Lisa Forte frequently writes for business publications and appears as a guest on many business podcasts. Lisa is an experienced cybercrime keynote speaker having spoken in major conferences around the world.
