Elmore in the News
Elmore’s Rupert Hills and Charlie Sorby contributed to a round table at the recent International
Cyber Expo. The topic was: ‘Traditional security operation centres (SOCs) are too passive to stop
threat actors. Attack disruption is the new frontier of cyber defence’. Here are some of the
observations from the discussion.
Elmore’s international teams may be separated by distance, with some staff in the UK and the rest in Portugal, but geography is no barrier to teamwork and strategy. Regular team-building exercises bring everyone together to discuss business, share information and ideas, and strengthen the brand. Porto, on the Douro River estuary in northern Portugal, was the venue for the 2023 Year End Elmore Team two-day event. The teams are pictured in front of the famous Ponte de Dom Luis I, a double-deck iron bridge which was the brainchild of Gustave Eiffel the designer of the Eiffel Tower!
Elmore is always ready to scale new heights and push the boundaries. And if it involves abseiling more than 200 feet down the Lloyd’s building, that’s no problem for Simon Gilbert, Elmore’s MD. On 4 July, Simon took part in an abseil challenge to support the Lord Mayor’s Charity Appeal, which was raising funds for three charities. Simon supported MQ Mental Health Research, and his fundraising page is open till the 23 July. Thanks for any donations!
