Protect your business and your people

Taking cyber security seriously

Our customers rely on our network. So we do everything in our power to ensure it’s safe. We employ over 2,500 security experts from a variety of backgrounds. Some of them may surprise you. From ethical hackers spotting the gaps in security that others might miss, to former police officers with a sixth sense in anticipating cyber crime.

Innovative thinking like this makes sure no stone is left unturned in the battle against threats to security. Today we’re giving you a glimpse of this expertise, to demonstrate that, like any successful organisation, it’s the people that really make the difference.

Take a look at our videos, articles and case studies, and take comfort that we’ll protect your business the way we do ours.


Let us protect your business, as we do ours

Cyber crime is big news - and big business. As cyber attacks become even more sophisticated, it's vital to stay ahead of the criminals. Nobody wants to be the next business making headlines for the wrong reasons.

Our Embedded Security solutions weave data and digital best practice into the fabric of a company. Watch to find out more, and see how we can make your business safer.

Meet the team making your businesses safer

In any successful organisation, it’s the people that really make the difference. So we wanted to introduce some of the people behind our cyber security solutions.

Konstantinos, Melanie and Amy spend their time making sure that your business is protected in the same way that we protect ours. We want you to be able to focus on what really matters – growing your business.




Konstantinos Karagiannis
CTO and blockchain hacker

A familiar face at security and hacking conferences, Konstantinos is the only person at BT who can hack bitcoin.

“We like to simulate the exact attacks that the real bad guys out in the wild are doing," Konstantinos tells us. “Hacking is a constant learning experience.” And we use this knowledge to protect you. 


Melanie Johnstone
Head of Threat Intelligence

Melanie and her team are responsible for spotting potential threats and finding the source, as well as providing insight into global security incidents to all of our customers.

“Cyber security is changing on a daily basis” Melanie confirms. We’re here to give you reassurance you can rely on.


Amy Lemberger
Head of Incident Response

Nowadays, it’s relatively easy for people to launch a cyber attack. Amy is in charge of the team tasked with fixing problems and threats. She lets us know that:

“BT’s security offering is unique because of its scale – there are very few other providers who are in 190 countries and have to protect their own infrastructure at the critical national infrastructure level."
