Chief Information Officer, Amnesty International

Amnesty International is not just a charity, it is a global organisation with acute security demands on its IT. As CIO at Amnesty since 2013, Gillespie has been involved in the organisation's technology transformation, not just in the UK, but around the world. This transformation has included the implementation of a new CRM system, a desktop refresh and supporting new offices in far-flung parts of the world - all the while supporting the highest standards of information security to keep both staff and people they work with safe.
