Background :-


After completing his formal education, Craig enlisted in the South African Defence Force and was selected to attend the prestigious Officers training course in Oudtshoorn.  After leaving the military Craig gained sixteen years of experience in the Information Technology industry performing roles including multinational network design and implementation, technology audits, implementing corporate governance and managing multinational teams.


Deciding that he needed more of a challenge Craig left the technology industry and joined KPMG in their Computer Forensics team. It was not long before his expertise in technology came to the fore and he lead several workstreams on investigations within Fortune 100 companies. Given his proficiency in database technology Craig was soon transferred to the Forensic Data Analytics team within KPMG where he spent five years performing, and leading, forensic engagements whilst working with large datasets.


It was during this time that Craig was seconded to the City of London Police, Economic Crime Directorate, where as the Technical Lead he led the design and implementation of  the technology infrastructure and data analytics routines for the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau.


Post his secondment Craig was transferred to KPMG's Fraud Risk Management (FRM) team and spent two years working with multinational corporates to investigate, remediate and prevent Fraud, Money Laundering and other threats. Craig was also responsible for developing the technological capability of the FRM team as well as designing training and control assessment frameworks in conjunction with bespoke software for training, and investigations..


Craig left KPMG to work with RSA Security in their Fraud and Threat Intelligence team where he was responsible for working with Fortune 100 clients to identify, remediate and prevent fraud and other threats from online vectors. In this role Craig travelled globally and was appointed the  project manager for a global anti-fraud solution within a multinational banking organisation.


On his departure from RSA Craig founded the  Centre for Research into Advanced Fraud and Future Threats and leads the team in the development and provision of training, software development and consulting services.
