Steve Bellamy said; “As a non-executive director of Becrypt for several years, I have first-hand experience of Becrypt’s flexible and innovative approach to providing clients with security solutions to the highest levels of quality. I am very much looking forward to becoming more involved, as we continue to expand in the UK, Europe and the US and into new commercial market segments. This is a very exciting time for Becrypt and I am looking forward to be a part of it.”

Bernard Parsons, CEO of Becrypt commented; “We are delighted that Steve has agreed to become our Chairman. Becrypt has a long track record of developing innovative solutions that are certified for government, MOD and public sector use.
