Godfried Williams
CEO

I am the CEO of Intellas and IBM Business Partner in the United Kingdom where I  lead service delivery for using artificial intelligence in the area of cyber security, digital forensics and big data analytics.  

As Business Partner at IBM I led the successful integration of KAIF an Artificial Intelligence software designed by Intellas with IBM QRADAR using Inter-Process Communication (IPC) strategies via Device Support Model (DSM)/Pipe an IBM custom middleware. This satisfied all basic requirements for enabling Intellas KAIF and IBM QRADAR to function as Software as a Service (SAAS). 

QRADAR-KAIF Integrated platform addresses the continuous increase of growth of data on the Internet, public databases and distributed mobile systems. The system handles and understands complex data set as well as making sense out of meaningless data. QRADAR/KAIF Digital, Security, Forensics, and Incidence Response Software Platform apply techniques capable of harnessing intelligent data analysis capabilities essential for digital security and forensic analysis for electronic crime attacks, investigation and case analysis. This could range from day to day network security breach, counter-terrorism surveillance on Internet, mobility based systems, online fraud, online masking for impersonation and digital evidence recovery, collection and forensic analysis.

The system uses a set of intelligent algorithms, methods and techniques deployed at operating system level of an ICT infrastructure to facilitate the discovery and recovery of digital evidence essential for digital security and forensic analysis.

I have led delivery of training and  services  for a number of organizations in the security and defence industry including Britain’s (MOD) Ministry of Defence under the auspices of DESG (Defence Engineering & Science Graduate) Scheme. I have also served as an external evaluator for BAE British Aerospace Applied Intelligence Systems Unit on Usability Testing on Cyber Systems. Managing  Editor of Cyber Security in Today World, a micro magazine that highlights contemporary and trending security matters globally. 

Editor in Chief of International Journal of RFID Security and Cryptography (IJRFIDSC) and Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Chaotic Computing (IJCC).  

Worked for the World Bank (IDA) as Senior Systems Analyst where I had the privilege  of jointly leading the Planning, Development and Management Information Systems Unit, handling the World Bank’s Highway Sector Investment Credit (IDA Credit 2858-GH). I also worked for  United Nations (IFAD) as a DBASE Programmer.  I managed the information systems for international disbursements for the USAID (United States Agency for International Development), European Union (EU), DANIDA (Danish International Development Agency), United Arab Emirates (UAE) whiles at AMISU (Accounting Management Information Systems Unit) of the World Bank.

Subject Matter Expert (SME) for Cyber Security, Analytics and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Essex Online Computing & Business, visiting Scholar and Professor at the department of Computer Science University of Louisville, Kentucky for Information Security and Applied Computational Intelligence. I have also held senior academic posts at the school of computing and technology, University of Gloucestershire and the University of East London, United Kingdom. I am a  Fellow of the British Computer Society (BCS).

Received my undergraduate, postgraduate/research and executive education and training at WANG Laboratories, East London Business School, City University London, Johnson School of Management - Cornell University and Harvard Business School.
