Ollie will join the NCSC after 27 years working in cyber security in the private sector. Until last year, he was the CTO at NCC Group. Before that, he was responsible for research in EMEA at BlackBerry and has also worked in Advanced Threats Research at Symantec.

He has also held senior roles advising government, including serving as Chair for the DSIT Cyber Technology External Advisory Group.

NCSC CEO, Lindy Cameron, said: “We’re delighted that Ollie will be joining the NCSC as our new Chief Technology Officer.

“He will bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our mission to make the UK the safest place to live and work online at a time when the pace of technological change has never been more evident.”

Ollie Whitehouse said: “I’m honoured to be starting as Chief Technology Officer at the NCSC and look forward to supporting its world-class talent in their critical work keeping the UK safe online.

“Having worked closely with the NCSC since its inception, I know how crucial its mission is and I am eager to contribute to our national security by addressing the collective challenges we face in maintaining our edge in cyberspace.”

Ollie Whitehouse will formally become CTO in late October 2023.
