Biography

Sean completed his Phd at NUI, Galway in 2018, having completed his MSc in Information Systems there in 2011. Previously he worked as an accountant in a variety of companies across the island of Ireland. Extending over 20 years, his experience covers the full gamut of companies from multinational to medium-sized and small family-owned businesses, in industries, which range from the Airline Industry to Manufacturing and the Distribution and Retail sectors. A thorough and conscientious professional he has brought the benefit of this experience to bear on his research which centres around information security and in particular the role of the individual employee.

He has had a number of research papers published in academic conferences and workshops including the inaugural Irish Association of Information Systems Workshop on Cloud Computing Research, UK Academy of Information Systems Conference, the Dewald Roode Workshop on Information Systems Security Research, the European Conference on Information Systems and the Bled eConference. 

Sean is always interested in hearing from others with interests in Information Security Behaviour.
