Discussing Dev-Sec-Ops – George Crosby

George is the Director at Cogito Group

Growing up around his dad’s carbon fiber business George was lucky enough to be introduced to computers at an early age. He went into finance straight out of university and he worked in engineering roles for the best part of 3 years. He then spent the next 4 years building up a company from scratch which wasn’t his own. It was in this where he learned a lot of the skills he talks about on the show. 

 He really enjoyed the challenge of growing a company so decided to found his own and do it himself. From this decision, Cognito Group was born.
