    Robert Hannigan
    Robert Hannigan

    Former Director

    Former Director - GCHQ (the world’s leading cyber security agency)

    View Speaker

    Robert Hannigan

    Robert Hannigan was Director of GCHQ, the UK government’s largest intelligence and cyber agency, from 2014-17. Hannigan has a long history of involvement in cyber security and technology, having drawn up the UK’s first Cyber Security Strategy and outlined the government’s ambition of making the UK ‘the safest place to live and do business online’. He set up the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre as part of GCHQ, which was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth in 2017, and launched the active cyber defence programme for the UK in 2016.

    Hannigan strongly promoted technical skills in his leadership team and his term as Director saw the biggest internal transformation of GCHQ since the end of the Cold War. Hannigan served as Security Adviser to the UK Prime Minister from 2007-10, giving advice on counter terrorism and intelligence matters. As Head of Intelligence, Security and Resilience in the UK Government’s Cabinet Office, he was responsible for the funding and oversight of the three UK intelligence agencies.

    For nearly ten years Hannigan lived in Belfast and worked on the Northern Ireland Peace Process as Tony Blair’s principal civil service adviser. He was responsible for negotiations with the political parties and paramilitaries, as well as liaison with the US, Irish and other Governments. He is the only civil servant credited with great creativity in Tony Blair’s autobiography.

    He has a particular interest in Bletchley Park, where he is a Trustee, its codebreaking and the birth of computing. He caused international controversy by criticising social media companies on his first day in office at GCHQ but has also spoken at MIT in defence of strong encryption. Hannigan is widely credited with opening up the secret world of GCHQ and explaining its work, inviting the media in for the first time. He has championed diversity and inclusion as part of his wider campaign to foster cyber skills. He was the first intelligence agency head to address the Stonewall workplace conference, during which he apologised for the treatment of Alan Turing and other LGBT staff. Hannigan has been recognised for his work in promoting women in technology, BAME recruitment and neuro-diversity.

    He is a Fellow of the Institute of Engineering and Technology and a member of the Ministry of Defence Innovation Advisory panel with Ron Dennis and Tim Peake. He is an adviser to BlueVoyant LLC and McKinsey & Co.

    Dr Hannah Fry

    Dr Hannah Fry is a lecturer in the Mathematics of Cities at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at UCL. She works alongside a unique mix of physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists, architects and geographers to study the patterns in human behaviour - particularly in an urban setting. Her research applies to a wide range of social problems and questions, from shopping and transport to urban crime, riots and terrorism.

    Alongside her academic position, Hannah is an experienced public speaker giving conference keynotes and taking the joy of maths into theatres and schools. Hannah’s mathematical expertise has led to the development of fascinating documentaries including ‘Britain’s Greatest Invention ’, ‘Horizon: How to Find Love Online’, ‘Horizon: 10 Things You Need to Know About the Future’, ‘City in the Sky’ (BBC2), ‘Trainspotting Live’, ‘The Joy of Data’, ‘Climate Change By Numbers’ and ‘Calculating Ada: The Countess of Computing’ (BBC4). For radio, Hannah presents ‘Music By Numbers’ (BBC R1), ‘The Curious Cases of Rutherford and Fry’ and ‘Computing Britain’ (BBC R4).

    As an author, Hannah has written two books: ‘The Indisputable Existence of Santa Claus: The Mathematics of Christmas’ (Transworld, 2016) which followed ‘The Mathematics of Love: Patterns, Proofs, and the Search for the Ultimate Equation’ (Simon & Schuster/ Ted, Feb 2015) in which Hannah brings together mathematical equations to provide answers to such questions as: What’s the chance of us finding love? What's the chance that it will last? How does online dating work, exactly? When should you settle down? How can you avoid divorce? When is it right to compromise? Can game theory help us decide whether or not to call?
