Jeets Aulak, Managing Director OSIRT Limited & Director Secure Technologies Ltd and Power Portal Ltd

The presentation outlines the current AI and cyber security solutions being presented by Academia and the opportunities for commercialising academic research and work. It covers the considerations for entrepreneurs who are launching a new commercial enterprise rather than joining the workforce.  This includes commercial considerations related to the challenges facing new cyber businesses entering the market; the numerous obstacles faced, together with solutions and considerations to overcome those hurdles.  The presentation will also examine if there are proven routes to success and an overview of OSIRT Ltd, the academic cyber security spin out from UoH.

About the Speaker

The majority of my working life was spent in Law Enforcement ranging from general policing to CID, murder investigation teams and counter terrorism to working in the Border Force to tackle modern slavery.  I also spent some time with the National Crime Agency helping to set up a specialist branch.  As a trained hostage negotiator, I spent some of this time as part of the national cadre for Hostage and Crisis Negotiators.

Prior to retiring from Law Enforcement, I was leading a number of teams tackling Child Sexual Exploitation.  This is where my journey into the cyber world significantly began, including leading dark web investigations.  We also partnered the online investigation teams with the Cyber school at the University of Hertfordshire.  Having lead international cyber investigations, my interest in cyber security grew and I took an opportunity to start a cyber security company with a Dr of cyber security.  We were successful in obtaining government funding and continued to specialise.  In parallel, I teamed up with my business partner to become a shareholder in a robotics and automation company.  We also developed software for smart metering for Electric Vehicles and moored yachts.  I have been operating these two SME’s for 5 years now.  During that time, I began mentoring Academics exploring opportunities to commercialise their research in cyber security, through Innovate UK, which is part of a government initiative for new businesses.
