Jenny Radcliffe, also known as “The People Hacker,” is a world renowned Social Engineer, hired to bypass security systems through a no-tech mixture of psychology, con-artistry, cunning and guile.

I find the threads that bind information together and mend them when they break. I’m Academic Cyber Security Lead at University of Manchester, director/co-founder of IASME-the SME benchmark of cyber security governance-that helped to pioneer the Cyber Essentials. An evangelist for useful standards and good practice, I nurse organisations through ISO/IEC 27001. I received a PhD for work in information systems risk.

My work spans public, private, and third sectors. It varies from identifying vulnerabilities (and how to fix them) of a small firm responsible for 7 million personal records, to writing a definitive guide to cyber resilience for local government (for SOCITM). I’ve contributed to books, conferences, and appear on the BBC to explain risks and opportunities of information systems to the wider community. I was voted the UK’s second top influencer in cyber security in 2017, and eighth and eleventh internationally in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
