Graham Cluley is an award-winning security blogger, researcher and public speaker. He has been a well-known figure in the computer security industry since the early 1990s when he worked as a programmer, writing the first ever version of Dr Solomon's Anti-Virus Toolkit for Windows.
Graham has given talks about computer security for some of the world's largest companies, worked with law enforcement agencies on investigations into hacking groups, and regularly appears on TV and radio explaining computer security threats.
Graham was inducted into the InfoSecurity Europe Hall of Fame in 2011, and his claim to fame is that he is the originator of the saying that "the cloud is just someone else’s computer” (but he hasn't managed to make any money out of it)
