Event description

Description

According to IBM, there are 2.5 quintillion bytes of data created each day. With that, 90% of all data that currently exists has only been created in the last two years!

As such, the need for data security has surged at an exponential rate. Both businesses and governments are pouring resources into cybersecurity — the techniques of how we can keep our data safer and away from the wrong hands.

What is cybersecurity, what opportunities exist in this field?

At our panel, our expert cybersecurity panelists will explore:

  • What are the different roles available in cybersecurity?
  • Why we need a breadth of roles in the field?
  • Why all roles in cybersecurity are not technical
  • How can you transition into a career in cybersecurity

Cameron Perry

Director, Client Services at Karissa Breen Industries


After a decade inside the tech industry, Cam joined an executive search firm and soon found himself focusing on security and running the tech division of the company. After a few years, he set-up his own business in executive search for security, working with global tier-1 clients across the region. Looking at how digital technology was changing the world, he fully embraced bleeding edge digital marketing to help grow his business and fell in love with what it could do.

Moving in similar security circles, he fortuitously met his business partner in 2017, and they instantly saw eye-to-eye on a tonne of areas in terms of both security and digital marketing. In a whirlwind of activity and sleepless nights, they forged a host of organisations in, on, and around security, helping businesses engage with people. With a popular blog, podcasts, and strong social following, they have become somewhat of a hub for the industry.
