Charlotte Haines

I lead the Digital Security programme within Barclays Technology, which focuses on protecting the Bank’s corporate clients against fraudulent activity.

To date this has included the below notable deliveries:

  • The Barclays Biometric Reader, which leverages finger vein technology to authenticate a user – a technology which it has not yet been possible to hack or imitate and has seen Barclays become the first Bank to offer this form of authentication
  • Deployment of behavioural biometrics to mitigate against remote access attacks
  • Creation of a generic security application that allows a consistent approach to cyber security across the Bank’s corporate products alongside the ability to react quickly to any emerging attack vectors

Alongside this, I am a keen advocate and participant of the Barclays’ gender equality network (WIN) where I have co-led the Gender Intelligence, Women on Boards and Speed Mentoring initiatives.

Outside of Barclays, I am actively involved in both gender and generational diversity. Notably, this has included presenting at the Whitehall & Industry Group Diversity & Inclusion conference as well as being invited to discuss diversity in the workplace at the 2018 Rustat Conference on Reconfiguring Careers (led by the University of Cambridge) as well as being one of the WeAreTheCity’s TechWomen100 winners in 2018.
