She led a two year programme, beginning in 2009 to integrate the HBoS and Lloyds TSB Distributed Platforms, before being appointed Group IT Security Director in December 2011, to run the day to day function and transform the IT Security position of LBG. She led a three year programme to implement standardised controls, improve technical solutions and enhance the people capability across the Group.  Sharon was appointed as Group IT Cyber Security & Risk Director in August 2015 taking on the oversight of risk and control activities within Group IT. Sharon currently leads the Group IT Cyber Security & Major Risk Programmes team which, alongside her Cyber Security responsibilities, sees her managing three major IT risk reduction programmes: Cyber, Technology Currency and IT Resilience.
