Robert Shapland

Head of Cyber Innovation , Falan Cyber

Rob Shapland is an ethical hacker, spending his life attacking companies worldwide to show them how the criminals break in and helping them put in place the necessary defences. His specialty is physical intrusions- breaking into company offices by dressing up as a cleaner, a Covid-19 Inspector or even as a Hollywood film producer and then stealing a computer from right under their nose.

He is a seasoned speaker at events and conferences around Europe, and regularly appears on BBC TV and radio, Sky News, ITV, Channel 4 and others as a cyber security adviser.
