Cyber Secure Central's Management Team
Abdulaziz A Masoud (Founder and Director)
Abdulaziz founded Cyber Secure Central coming from both legal and entrepreneurial backgrounds. He studied Law and Politics at Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London, and has worked as a bilingual legal adviser at two prominent international law firms. Abdulaziz moved on from corporate law to dedicate his time to managing property development investments in Saudi Arabia, as well as studying Cyber Security from the perspective of a real estate developer. Exposition to this truly revolutionary and essential domain of our everyday lives led him to aggressively pursue the prospect of investing in Cyber Security. After a year of intensive market research, and having assembled a terrific international team of cyber security experts and academics, programmers, web developers, digital marketing specialists and supporting professionals from different industries; including Human Resources, Law and finance, he launched Cyber Secure Central.
Coming from a highly security-conscious family, with his late father General Abdulaziz Masoud, the former head of the Saudi General Directorate of Investigations; and a background in investigations (Abdulaziz also holds a Diploma with Merit in Private Investigation, Somerset, England), Abdulaziz is grievously concerned by the poor levels of cyber security awareness and hygiene that not only result in financial losses for businesses and organisations, but also endangers the personal security of innocent civilians everywhere. Simply seeing that a child or a nation state can equally be the victim of lethal cyber-crime, and that such disastrous eventualities can be avoided and mitigated foremost by raising awareness and educating; he has made it his mission to be a major force for promoting and propagating a cyber security aware international community.
