She then worked in UK Counter Terrorism Intelligence before moving into one of the UK Police Cyber Crime Units. She founded her own company, Red Goat Cyber Security, in 2017 and has become one of the leading voices on cyber security issues.
Lisa Forte is a professional speaker, trainer, entrepreneur, documentary personality and vlogger and was named one of the Top 100 Women in Tech.

Forte has starred in several documentary films and is a regular on BBC news, radio and in national papers. In 2020 Lisa co-founded a “cyber for good” movement called Cyber Volunteers 19. The group provides pro bono help and advice to hospitals around Europe during the pandemic and has amassed almost 3000 volunteers.
As a speaker, Lisa Forte is internationally recognised and furnishes audience with high energy presentations centred around storytelling. Forte’s YouTube vlog, Rebooting, has attracted big names in cyber security and focuses on debating hot and controversial issues in security.
Lisa Forte delivers dynamic and engaging presentations based on her expert personal experiences of dealing with cybercrime cases and the research she has done into how cyber criminals use psychological principles in their activities. An experienced cyber security trainer, Forte knows how to effectively communicate her message to all types of audience in a lively, informative and engaging manner.
Lisa not only knows her subject inside out, but has an incredible way of delivering her message in an engaging, thought provoking, intelligent and informative way. One that has the audience hooked and waiting for more. At every event Lisa has been involved in with me the audience can't get enough - the queues of delegates trying to speak to her at the end of the session speaks volumes!
Cathy Hodge, Digital Ship Conferences
Lisa ran a highly entertaining workshop for staff at UCAS as part of our cyber threat awareness event. Her interactive session demonstrated how our social media profile can help cyber criminals to exploit us. The event was over-subscribed and received great feedback from our staff, who found it both fun and seriously thought-provoking. Lisa was a very engaging presenter and facilitator, and we will certainly be calling on her talents in the future to help us maintain awareness of the threat from cyber criminals.
UCAS, Business Continuity Conference
Lisa was one of the most popular and engaging speakers at TEISS 2019. Lacing humour and intrigue with her real case studies of social engineering, she certainly knows how to capture a room. We highly recommend her!
