Boohoo Group and the cost of cybersecurity infrastructure

In a post-pandemic world, Boohoo Group’s Head of Information Security Dorian Skeete balances security excellence with managing corporate budgets

Founded in the heart of Manchester’s historic textile district in 2006, today Boohoo Group PLC is home to a portfolio of innovative fashion brands targeting style and quality-conscious consumers with up-to-date and inspirational fashion. 

With a total of 13 brands under one group, Boohoo sells its clothing and accessory lines to a wide range of demographics from 18 years old and upwards. “One of the great things about the brand is that it really does cover a lot of ages and a lot of demographics,” explains Dorian Skeete, the group’s Head of Information Security. Joining Boohoo in June 2022, one of Skeete’s first actions was to create the group’s security strategy, ensuring the delivery of all cybersecurity processes, training programs, maintenance and growth activities continue to take place at the highest standard

“One big buzzword for our security strategy at the moment is consolidation,” he explains. “When it came to creating our security strategy, we needed to look at consolidating how we do that, not just in terms of the tooling and technology that we use and the vendors that come with that, but also streamlining our policies and processes and resources to do that across the wider group.”
