Robert O’Brien, CEO of cyber tech firm MetaCompliance, has won the UK Gamechanger of the Year Award at the ACQ5 Global Awards 2018.

Being an entrepreneur is not an easy role in an industry were the only constant is change. A unique blend of technical savvy, market knowledge and leadership skills are required to succeed.

Having successfully grown and sold a number of technology firms in the past, Robert is an excellent example of a modern entrepreneur, and his achievements have been recognised by the recent award win.

The massive growth in cyber-crime has meant that cyber security and compliance have now become key priorities for organisations as they realise the massive implications that a data breach can have on their business.

MetaCompliance has created a product range that directly addresses the specific challenges that arise from cyber threats and corporate governance, and the company has helped over 600 organisations around the world stay cyber secure and compliant.

Robert commented on the award win and the plans for the business going forward: “I’m delighted to win the UK Gamechanger of the Year Award, it’s a real buzz!

Our purpose is to help organisations keep their staff safe online and protect their brand and reputation.

As disrupters in our industry, we recognise that cyber security is hard for ordinary people and we are relentless in our vision of making it more palatable, whilst ensuring people are equipped with the skills to protect themselves online.”
