Cloudwize is a proactive partner in the ongoing battle against threat agents who have discovered technology presents boundless opportunity in a borderless world, unconstrained by traditional law and order systems. Cybercrime is a multi-billion dollar global “industry” and the degree of technical innovation embraced by such forces proves a constant threat to all corners of society.
Cybersecurity is a rapidly evolving risk factor and requires ongoing investment to deploy protections as new vulnerabilities are detected and exploited by dark threats. The protection of client networks requires a multi-layered approach but this must be balanced with the need for organisational agility.
A network too locked down reduces productivity and encourages users to circumvent security practices, while a network without adequate protections is vulnerable to significant operational, financial and reputational risk. A middle-ground solution is key to securing networks without forcing users to jump through hoops or find workarounds.
Cloudwize Technologies is pleased to be a sponsor of this event and will be hosting a workshop presented by two of Australia's leading Cybersecurity experts. Click here to get your tickets.
Louisa Vogelenzang is an associate managing director in the Identity Theft and Breach Notification (ITBN) team of Kroll based in Melbourne. Louisa has enjoyed a distinguished career leading security technology, services and teams for Australia’s largest telecommunications group, a global systems integrator and managed services provider. Louisa leads the expansion of Kroll’s ITBN practice in Australia and across Asia Pacific, helping organisations prepare for and comply with regional data breach notification laws as well as assisting consumers impacted by identity theft. In 2017, she was seconded to The Australian Prime Minister and Cabinet’s Cyber Resilience Task Force and in 2019 she spent three months volunteering with IDCARE, a not for profit dedicated to identity and cyber security support in Australia and New Zealand.
Melissa specialises in information security culture programs. Her mission is to improve the security culture of her client organisations through effective education, change management and behaviour reinforcement. A ‘non techie’, Melissa’s CV includes ASX200 companies and household name corporations to prove she’s got what it takes to master the ‘human side’ of cyber security.
A secure IT network is the result of a partnership between the client and Cloudwize, where we are both committed to securing and protecting the network and business critical data. To do this, there are minimum standards of security which clients must invest in, and there are globally recognised best-practice technical standards that Cloudwize delivers every day. Cybersecurity is evolving continuously, so these minimum standards are under constant reassessment. Regular feedback and discussion ensures that together, our clients and Cloudwize work in partnership to meet these challenge as they arise.
Securing a client's data is what we do. It's a multi-layered approach and we have a whole range of tools in our expert kit bag if you're interested in the mechanics of what we do:
With the right tools in place, Cloudwize’s technical skills then come into play. We implement the best practices of the Australian Signals Directorate & the Australian Cyber Security Centre (https://www.cyber.gov.au/publications/essential-eight-explained).
And our job is never done. The rapid shifts in cybersecurity require us to continuously invest in professional development and peer engagement to maintain knowledge and evolve our understanding of emerging threats and protections.
