Caerleon’s abilities are built on the foundation of traditional security but use analytics to defend against the most current and complex threats. The services provided for each step in the security process are conducted and executed by the best experts in the field. With employees working across the globe, Caerleon accesses the most cutting edge knowledge in the cyber world allowing us to stay ahead of the curve.

What about our name?
caerleonDefense in depth, also known as the Castle Approach, uses multiple layers of security deployed throughout a technology system. Caerleon is named after a Roman legionary fortress just east of Cardiff, Wales. It was legendary as the largest of the three Roman fortresses that guarded what is now the UK. It used a layered defense system: crenelated ramparts followed by a moat following by another highly defended wall much like the current defense in depth strategy for data breaches that uses multiple levels of controls that, together, form a comprehensive data breach risk management defense. Caerleon Castle became, so legend tells us, Camelot, the home of King Arthur. It is pronounced CARE-lee-on by the English and care-LEE-en by the Welsh.

Board of Directors

Edmund (Ned) Goodhue, CEO, has a BA in economics and an MBA in finance from Harvard, a BS in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of California, and pursued for two years but did not complete a Ph.D. at MIT in electrical engineering with emphasis on computer science and artificial intelligence. He was part of the team that developed the programming language Scheme.[1]

He has taught accounting, finance, and international finance at Harvard Business School, INSEAD (Fontainebleau, France, both MBA and Executive programs) and Babson College (both MBA and Executive programs), as well as “Digital Design and Computer Architecture” at University of California – Irvine.

His series of cases “Assuming Control at Altex Aviation” has been used by business schools all over the world in both English and Spanish (including Harvard, for whom it was initially written).

Mr. Goodhue has substantial experience in predictive analytics:

  • At an R&D firm funded by a large insurance company, Ned was CEO and team leader of the first true carve-out of the most expensive healthcare events: transplants, neonates, and major trauma. They calculated premiums based on the first such modelling in healthcare using inference based on a huge dataset.
  • He designed and wrote the software that automatically bought and sold stocks on both the US and Canadian exchanges for a Bermuda fund. The fund returned 19.22% in its Canadian portfolio (verses 7.16% in the TSX) and 7.11 % in its US fund (verses 3.53% for the S&P). In both funds the Beta was lower than the index. The fund invested in long equities; its average hold time was 7 days.
  • And he both designed and coded the first version of our predictive analytics that underwrites the insurance policies supported by EGB Insurance. More specifically:
    • The predictive system identifies the intrinsic risk of a client,
    • Other programs developed analyzes their vulnerability to determine the residual risk of the client.
    • A third set of programs predicts the future claims this client will incur which is the foundation of the premium the carrier charges to insure that part of the retained risk the client wants to insure.
