Roger Dean

Director Special Projects, EEMA, UK


 

Roger Dean’s career in IT security spans more than 30 years. During his career he has been credited with technology innovations that continue to impact organisations and individuals around the world today. He introduced the first commercial e-mail service (Comet) to the UK, France and Switzerland, and advised and recommended the current Internet naming protocol i.e. first name.last name@.

In 1987, Roger became a founder of EEMA that today boasts more than 160 member organisations. He was Executive Director for over 27 years until 2014 and was awarded its prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012 in recognition of his service and contribution to the organisation and the IT security industry. One such highlight was the completion of the very successful PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) challenge, which was undertaken on behalf of the European Commission. The challenge included PKI and authentication interoperability trials between 25 vendors from nine countries.

In addition to EEMA, Roger is also founding member of two ‘must attend’ events in the annual IT security calendar – EEMA’s Annual Members conference (June) now in its 31st year, and the ISSE (Information Security Solutions Europe) conference (November) which is now in its 19th year.

Throughout his career, Roger has been instrumental in establishing best working practices and influencing the formulation of standards, guidelines and the setting of legislation and industry regulation. He was involved in the formation and interoperability of many standards and standard bodies including X.400, X.500, XML, Web Services, e-procurement data and content standards. He also assisted with the creation of UNSPSC and is a founding director of ECCMA, which maintained the UNSPSC product and services classification.

Roger is a fellow of BCS; however, his contribution to IT security extends across Europe and beyond, participating in and chairing several UN, ENISA and European Commission workshops. Currently, he has been involved in a number of important EU projects – STORK 2, SSEDIC and Future ID, FutureTrust and LighTest.
