Charlie Newman

Charlie Newman started his career as a financial journalist in 1976 before changing his focus to IT with the explosive growth of 'microcomputing' and the PC in the early 1980s. He was the editor of two highly successful magazines on the subject.

In 1995 Charlie moved from print-journalism to the new world of online publishing when he launched the IT Informer series of web-based news services. He moved from online publishing to internet software development in the late '90s and was among the first developers of specialist Content Management Systems. Since then he has become a leading expert on secure intranet-based systems for data-sharing, and is a director of Littoralis Ltd. He continues to write on IT and online systems.

In addition to his commercial activities Charlie was a founder of CRP News in 2008, to which he continues to contribute. And at the beginning of 2012, he was one of a number of founder-Members of Partnerships Against Crime (PAC). PAC is a consortium of private and public organisations which have come together to promote the development of effective, results-driven partnerships to reduce low-level crime and anti-social behaviour. With spending on policing coming under ever-increasing pressure, Charlie believes that locally-based partnerships are an essential component of the UK's crime reduction strategy for the future.
