During his time at Barclays, he was promoted to chief executive of Barclays Electronic Commerce Holdings Inc. and went on to lead the Barclays team which created the e-business bank joint venture, Identrus LLC (http://www.identrus.com), where he became a board director on formation of the joint venture company. He was also influential in the formation of UK banking e-business and security initiatives as chair of a key committee of the Association of Payments and Clearing Services.

Dr. Dorey has produced a number of recognized texts in IT security and risk management and has provided briefings to UK, EU and US governments and regulators, including expert testimony to US Congress on emerging trust services in electronic commerce.
