James Durrant Associate Director London +44 (0)20 7865 2514

I am an experienced technology risk professional. I have over 13 years of experience in performing technology internal audits and assessing organisation’s IT controls, processes, and governance arrangements to provide guidance on how these can be enhanced. Day-to-day I work with clients from a wide range of sectors including FTSE 100 and 250 listed entities, UK national defence agencies, and large and global charities.  

My areas of expertise include database and server management, end user computing, software development, IT disaster recovery and resilience, IT transformation and information security. Assessing a broad range of IT and digital risk areas, I review organisations' IT strategies, cloud arrangements, IT and data security - including data protection, GDPR, and ISO 27001. This includes cyber and information security audits, assessing virtual environments, digital teams and the use of social media.  

Outside of work I like spending my time with my family and friends, generally over food, going for walks, or in front of a good movie. I am also actively involved in my local church where I help lead one of our two sites.
