Nick is currently a Principal Security Consultant for Computer Concepts Limited (CCL). The purpose of this nation-wide role is to develop CCL's cyber-security practice; undertake security 'thought leadership' and mentoring; and carry out security consultancy engagements. He is based in CCL's Dunedin office.

Nick's area of expertise is the people and business side of cyber-security. This focus has been developed as a result of a varied cyber-security career stretching from time in the GCSB/NCSC; spanning a national cyber-security practice leadership role within the Ministry of Health and wider health sector; and culminating in him taking up his current role with CCL in Dunedin.

His talk will cover:

  • NCSC: experiences in fostering cyber-security leadership, and undertaking cyber-security and information assurance stewardship, at a national level;
  • Ministry of Health: overcoming cultural and behavioural barriers in leading the uplift of cyber-security maturity across one of New Zealand's most complex and challenging sectors;
  • Cyber-Security: de-bunking the myths; getting the basics right; and why it can be a 'value-add' opportunity for businesses; and
  • Current cyber-security challenges facing businesses and industry today.
