Alan Barrett

Head of IT

TWM Solicitors

Biography

Alan has been Head of IT at TWM Solicitors for over 11 years, during which time he has delivered a wide variety of IT projects to support the Firm including office relocations, mergers, server virtualisation and several mail server upgrades amongst other projects. He’s also the computer information security expert for the Firm and has delivered a number of security projects including the introduction of Unified Threat Management appliances 

Having gained his MBA in 2011, Alan hopes he brings a unique perspective to Legal IT, looking at how IT can enable business efficiency and profitability as well as provide a reliable core service that users now expect as standard. He keenly investigates new technology in order to give TWM the edge and produce system resilience unheard of in a mid-size organisation only a few years ago. 

Like many IT Directors the modern threat landscape gives him sleepless nights and locking down and monitoring the systems he is responsible for has become of primary importance to the Firm’s future success, reputation and profitability.
