Kiron Bose: Chief Operating Officer, Issured Limited
With a degree in aeronautical engineering, Kiron spent his early career designing and developing complex aircraft systems for BAE SYSTEMS (BAES) including avionic and weapon systems for both the Typhoon and Lightning (F35) fighter aircraft. During his time at BAES, Kiron moved into the design of future command, control and intelligence systems working with the operational business to understand their needs and translating these into technical designs.
Kiron then moved to PA Consulting working across a number of Digital Transformation projects for a variety of clients, eventually becoming an independent consultant to UK Counter Terrorism Policing where he led the business transformation of how they source, manage and share intelligence. From this, Issured was born where Kiron is the COO and has led a range of Digital Transformation programmes with UK Law Enforcement, NHS, UK Fire and Rescue Services and a range of private sector clients.
