Event description

The Jersey branch of the BCS is pleased to present Mr Ed Gibson, Chief Cyber-Security Advisor for Microsoft.

Subject : ‘Offshore, onshore, unsure – what should we protect and how ?’


Mr Gibsons primary role is to serve as the senior adviser to Microsofts customers and governments on how to best respond to the current security environment – from internal leakage of intellectual property to best practices for online cyber-security.

Mr Gibsons knowledge and experience was gained through a 20-year career as a Special Agent, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). He specialized in investigating economic espionage, complex money laundering and fraud schemes, and intellectual property theft. From 2000-2005, Mr Gibson was assigned to the U.S. Embassy in London as the FBI’s Assistant Legal Attach in the UK and Ireland responsible for all FBI hi-tech, Internet extortion and blackmail, cyber-terrorism, infrastructure protection, intellectual property, and crimes against children investigations. His focus on how criminals exploit the Internet and his investigative abilities have made him an ideal figurehead for Microsoft’s efforts in secure computing.

Before his appointment to the FBI, Mr Gibson served for 5-years as a Lawyer for a multi-national corporation based in the U.S. He is a qualified Solicitor in England and Wales. Since taking on his role with Microsoft UK, Ed has lectured widely on world-wide cyber-threats and Internet crime, social networks, and e-business & risk management. He is a sought-after speaker with an ability to bring current security problems to life and make it personal.
