Faire Sans Dire is pleased to announce that Charles Peter Richard Fairclough has rejoined our organisation as IT Director with effect from February 2016. Previously, he had been Faire Sans Dire’s IT Director from December 2009 until January 2013 when he had to resign voluntarily in order to avoid conflicts of interest.
Charles has been involved with a variety of IT and web related businesses since his school days when he started his first IT business selling password recovery programs (which he wrote). He attended Portsmouth University and despite having been assured of two firsts in both Bsc Digital Media and Bsc Computing decided to leave the academic world. He entered commerce instead. Since then Charles has been the founding director of two ecommerce businesses one of which, Profile Tunnel Ltd, was effectively taken over by Faire Sans Dire in 2012. Profile Tunnel provided Faire Sans Dire with intelligence from cyberspace when undertaking assignments.
Charles has considerable experience in cyber security and intelligence activities as well as ecommerce at large. In 2012 whilst IT Director at Faire Sans Dire he was seconded for several months to work with a competitor, Kroll Ontrack, which specialises in data recovery, computer forensic and e-disclosure services.
As the IT Director of Faire Sans Dire, Charles is responsible for the provision of all cyberspace, website and communications security services and counter intelligence activities as well as being responsible for the day to day management of the organisation’s operations. He also coordinates all IT related aspects of the intelligence services Faire Sans Dire provides.
