About

Dr Jessica Barker is a leader in the human nature of cyber security. In 2017, she was named one of the top 20 women of influence in cyber security in the UK and was the winner of the TechWomen50 Awards.

Barker’s technical knowledge and sociology background equip her with unique insight, and she has a talent for translating technical messages to a non-technical audience. She is engaged by organisations of all sizes, from multi-national firms to SMEs.

Barker’s work surrounds the psychology and sociology of cyber security, particularly regarding cyber security threats, social engineering, how to effectively communicate cyber security messages, the psychology of fear and cyber security, and the language of cyber security. Her specialisms span cyber security awareness, behaviour and culture.

Barker is passionate about encouraging young people to become more engaged with cyber security, working with TeenTech and the UK’s Cyber Security Challenge.
