CGI hires Cabinet Office advisor as director of cyber security

Computerworld UK revealed last year that CGI is setting up a cyber security lab in the UK

CGI has announced the appointment of Andrew Rogoyski, previously a senior advisor to the Cabinet Office, as the company's director of cyber security services.

Rogoyski will be heading up CGI's cyber security offering and advising the company's clients across commercial and public sectors how they can mitigate against increasing threats in the digital world.

Computerworld UK recently revealed that CGI would be setting up a cyber security lab in the UK, as CGI UK chief Tim Gregory believes that over the next two years companies are going to make moves towards outsourcing their cyber capabilities.

Rogoyski joins CGI from an extended secondment to the Cabinet Office's Office of Cyber Security and Information Assurance and has also supported UKTI (UK Trade & Investment) in the promotion of the UK's cyber companies overseas.

"I'm delighted to welcome Andrew to CGI. With the growing importance of cyber security to both commercial and government organisations CGI is committed to investing in our cyber security offering," said Tim Gregory, UK president at CGI.

"Andrew brings a wealth of experience and will ensure we continue to stay a step ahead of the ever-changing cyber security landscape helping our clients to be confident that they are operating securely."

CGI has had reasonable success in the UK since its £1.7 billion takeover of Logica in 2012, winning a number of public sector deals, including an integration contract with the Department of Energy and Climate Change.

However, CGI's President, Tim Gregory, recently slammed government procurement reforms and warned that Whitehall is making it difficult for big suppliers to do business with the public sector.

In other news, CGI is having a tougher time across the pond in the US where it was recently fired as the prime IT contractor on the problem-plagued website.
