Josh joined Prosperity in 2024 and his experience includes spearheading an internal ISO 27001 certification project alongside the CEO with his previous company. Here he secured consistent board approval for security policies, managed monthly reporting, dealt with redundancy notifications and gap analyses to align with ISO standards. Also, he organised internal audits, enhanced company-wide cybersecurity awareness and led technical improvements in SIEM monitoring processes.

Notably, he also successfully transitioned a SIEM lab environment from on-premises to AWS without downtime. His policy implementations and emphasis on continuous internal audits for clients resulted in undertaking certification processes and seamless ISMS integration. Furthermore, his tailored approach to Annex A controls and policies significantly improved their ISMS. He collaborates effectively with project teams, sets KPIs and contributes to the adoption of ISO standards within client organisations to ensure successful delivery.
