14: Iain Lobban, Director, GCHQ

Iain Lobban is the director of intelligence gathering facility Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), one of the three UK intelligence agencies, working with MI5 and MI6 to protect the UK's national security interests.

In October 2011, the agency warned that levels of cybercrime were currently unprecedented, with Lobban citing a “disturbing” volume of attacks. The agency’s new cybercrime strategy will see GCHQ taking a more proactive and collaborative role in helping companies and public sector bodies tackle the growing cyber threats.
