About Me

Hello, my name is Nick McLauchlan and I like to make things work, correctly. I started out as an aircraft electrician in the RAF where I learnt that taking shortcuts seldom ends well.

Since leaving the RAF over 15 years ago I have specialised in what used to be called industrial automation, which became systems integration but now its called operational technology – what ever you call it for me its all 5 levels of the Purdue model and how they work together safely and securely.

When I started this venture a number of people, previous clients, friends and family, asked me what OTSupport does, or more specifically what am I going to do to pay the mortgage? My belief is that there is a serious lack of focus on Cyber Security across all industrial sectors, having worked in pretty much every one I am confident in making that statement. On that basis I want to work with clients, old and new, to secure their assets by helping them identify the weaknesses in their processes, procedures, software and hardware.

If certifications, qualifications, publications and presentations are your thing you can find a list of mine here, I take pride in my continuing professional development so it is constantly being updated.

If you think I can help you or your company contact me for a chat and lets see what we can do.
