Acting VP of Engineering (US) | Head of Engineering

Wayne Moore

Wayne started coding aged nine and enjoyed a 15-year career in software development before joining Simply Business. Having been involved in the Ethical Hacking community, he's enjoyed getting others involved in things they probably shouldn't. This set him up well for a career in information security where, at Simply Business, he created the security department. As CISO, his primary responsibility is developing and maintaining the global InfoSec strategy, but he has been known to muck about with some new tool or technique to keep the Security Operations Centre on its toes.

Chief Information Security Officer

We're a diverse bunch of people who are united by a passion for building technology, which is as innovative today as it will be reliable tomorrow – and enables the world's best commercial insurance experience.
