It’s a new era for Bores as James Bore takes over the helm from his parents, Chris and Sarah who retired in 2020. The ethos devised and maintained by his parents of building close relationships with clients as well as helping clients to help themselves when it comes to technology is still the backbone of the new Bores.
Whilst wanting to maintain the essence of the business as set by Chris and Sarah, James Bore also has some exciting plans for the new incarnation Bores. He is focusing on digital, data and cyber security, and is offering a consultancy service. He will be working closely with his network to deliver the best service for his clients.
James Bore has an MSc in Cyber Security from Northumbria University, and has worked in IT support, security, development, architecture and engineering. Cyber security is, however, his passion and he has made an international name for himself through speaking at international conferences, writing for magazines as well as contributing book chapters on insider and security threats.
James Bore is not new to the family business and has been working on an ad hoc basis with his parents since 2005. He was more than happy to carry forward the Bores name when his parents retired as he was passionate about keeping the family business going. He feels it is a piece of history. Not only for his family but for the technology industry.
He intends to continue with the training aspect of the business and wants to offer a practical approach to genuine security improvement.
“I have had the pleasure of engaging with James on various projects. Through the Play Secure Conference, to incident response training sessions and when he kindly did a talk for my digital team on one of the OWASP 10 ten vulnerabilities. Every time James was engaging and was very adept at breaking down concepts for even the most casual of cyber audiences to understand. Crucially, his approach is entertaining which is really how information sticks! I cant wait to use his services for more cyber training!”
Lianne Potter, Covea Insurance
“James recently spoke at our Security IT Summit and I wanted to say what a great job he did. His seminar received great feedback from our delegates and I would most definitely recommend him as a speaker within the IT Security industry.”
Elizabeth Cowell, Forum Events Ltd
"We were fortunate enough to work with James on a cutting-edge, cyber security academic programme, and he was immensely valuable. He demonstrated superb skill across several cyber security domains, advising on some of the most important aspects of our curriculum. He’s also a superb speaker and trainer. He volunteered to deliver Cyber School lessons during the COVID lockdown, and his videos were very well received by over 10,000 school students."
