Alistair Kennedy | Director 

I founded 4E Cyber Ltd under the Rybec Group after retiring from twenty years in law enforcement, latterly working in cyber-crime. I realised that I had found my perfect job, so when I retired it was obvious that I should continue this, as I am passionate about cyber security and raising awareness. 
Computers have always interested me and I studied IT in my own time at school, obtaining an extra GCSE level qualification. I then studied Agriculture at college and university and obtained qualifications in Farm Management. After university I worked in the building industry for seven years before entering law enforcement. 
I have worked in cyber security since 2016 and have various qualifications in this field. Cyber security is an area that’s constantly changing and I want to help people and businesses safeguard themselves against every type of cyber risk. 
Over the years I have done a lot of voluntary work, raising awareness of cyber security careers in schools. These young people are our future and I am a firm believer that education is key to defending ourselves against cyber criminals. 
I have completed courses in Cyber Crime Awareness and Cyber Security (NCSC courses), Networking, and the Art of Hacking, as well as being certified in Cyber Security with ISC2. I am also registered with the Chartered Institute of Digital Investigators. 

Chris Eastwood | Director 

I’m a former soldier who served in the Royal Engineers for seven years and up until recently I was an operational front line police officer for nineteen years and latterly as a Cyber Prevent officer of the regional cyber-crime unit. 
My career has allowed me to build a wealth of knowledge in actively managing cyber-crime offenders in the Yorkshire and Humber area, as well as help to divert potential cyber-crime offenders away from a life of crime and to instead use their skills for good. 
As part of my role at The Rybec Group, I provide tailored advice to businesses that allows them to stay safe online and not become a victim of cyber-dependent crime. Over the years I have won a number of awards, which include a runner-up award for Innovation in Business from The Doncaster Chamber of Commerce. I have also been awarded for my work with Doncaster Skills Academy, delivering presentations that explain to students how they can stay safe online. In addition, the YHROCU Cyber Prevent and Protect team won awards at the National Cyber Awards. 
In 2019 I was the driving force behind The Matrix Challenge, which received international acclaim. This saw me attend 23 schools and educational establishments in person as part of a cyber security roadshow across the entire Yorkshire and Humber region, all in the space of just one month. During this time I provided inputs to a wide range of schools, including special educational needs schools, focusing on being as inclusive as possible and encouraging young people to get involved in cyber security. 
I am a qualified ISO 27001 Lead Auditor under the BSI Training Academy and qualified in Cyber Incident Planning and Response, along with a number of other qualifications.
