Half an hour before I meet Trustev, I spot David Coallier, the chief executive of Barricade, an anti-hacking early warning system.

Both men were angel investors in Trustev, along with other entrepreneurs including Liam Casey, the founder of $1 billion revenue technology company PCH, and serial investor Eamon Leonard.
