Oxford Information Labs (Est. 2002) is a cyber intelligence company founded by Lucien Taylor and Mark Robertshaw. Its roots are in two businesses which merged in 2017 - Emily Taylor’s Internet research consultancy, and Oxford Information Labs’ software development and research business.
“We saw a gap in the market for cyber analysts who were also real techies - offering not just advice, but helping provide practical solutions”Emily Taylor - CEO
Oxford Information has two streams of cyber intelligence work.
Oxford Information Labs started providing bespoke software solutions to a number of high-profile clients, including the BBC, British Government, Domain Name industry providers, and has produced innovative solutions for the education, insurance, and Government sectors.
In 2013, the company decided to develop a number of its own products within a strategic objective to deliver more secure web services that were easier to manage.
“We were fed up with applying patches to everything, and software upgraded and breaking things to make things ’safer’”. We were interested in sleep-easy solutions, we started building them, and we haven’t looked back”Lucien Taylor - Security Product Development
At the same time, security issues in cyberspace have mushroomed, and the world is crying out for better security advice and products. Since 2014, Emily Taylor has been working closely with the international affairs think tank, Chatham House, where she is Editor of the Journal of Cyber Policy. With her team provided research, training and media comment and remains close to the evolving world of cybersecurity. The company now has a deep knowledge of the internet world, its key players, organisations, issues, and unique international governance processes. The team is regularly asked to contribute to media publications, and news broadcasts about emerging issues such as 5G and Huawei, Facebook, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and cyberattacks, and terrorism involving cybersecurity in general.
Security first, easy to manage .. oh .. and never forget the team.
