“Knowledge is an appreciation of the possession of interconnected details which, in isolation, are of lesser value.”
As an accomplished architect and customer advocate with 25+years’ experience, it’s completely logical that Kyle’s driving mantra is a pure definition of knowledge, rather than an esoteric quote.
His interest in IT began when he scrounged a 286 PC and started pulling it apart. After spending several years in Europe in a variety of sales roles he discovered programming, and the tech world suddenly made sense. On his return to Australia he developed the first Australian-hosted, secure, online backup service for small-medium enterprise.
He has become a trusted industry advisor in enterprise strategy, security process and design modelling, and strategic relationship management for ASX-50 clients. His expertise and knowledge focuses on Secure Architecture design, Security Strategy and Governance, and Relationship Management.
Kyle holds a variety of professional qualifications: Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP); Certified Information Security Officer (S-CISO); The Open Group Certified: TOGAF® Standard.
He maintains a consumer focused approach in creating solutions from his start in sales, believing if the customer doesn’t “get it”, it’s the wrong approach.
For Kyle the appeal of cyber is that it never stands still; it’s always changing and so you are always experiencing something new. The world is becoming more and more (inter-) connected. Technology continues to intrude into our private existences. The need to evolve, combat, and protect against these incursions will only become more urgent, and necessary, as time progresses.
With such a laser-like focus on creating innovative tech solutions, he enjoys spending his time away from the challenges of the cyber world, very quietly.
