Adrian Harris, XINTEC

Adrian Harris is Fraud and Risk Consultant at XINTEC.

His career in telecommunications spans several decades. It began in 1985 when he took up a development position in the AT&T Bell Labs in the USA. In 2002, Adrian returned to the UK to work for Cerebrus Solutions, a fraud management software vendor, which was later acquired by Neural Technologies.

Adrian joined the team at XINTEC in January 2019.

Adrian’s time in risk management has been spent mostly in a pre-sales capacity, but occasionally he is a seasoned professional in a variety of disciplines ranging from software development to senior-level consulting.

Adrian has witnessed many changes in telecommunications over the years. He would personally admit that he is frequently amazed at how the foundations he gained more than 30 years ago apply equally well today. For instance, when it comes to fraud, the main difference is the level of anonymity: back in the early days, unless you had a really long piece of string, you could see the fraudster!

Adrian has also served as a member of the RAG Steering Committee.
