A new cyber security partner called TriSecOps has officially launched operations across Australia and Asia Pacific under the leadership of CEO Craig Davies.
Founded in 2018 by Davies and Phillip Kingston, the company will receive backing and investment from Trimantium Capital.
Prior to starting up TriSecOps, Davies led the Australian government’s cyber security industry growth centre, AustCyber, and held senior security roles at Atlassian and Cochlear, along with technology roles at Westpac and other start-ups over the past 25 years.
Davies will also act as an executive director on the TriSecOps board and will be joined by CFO and executive director Craig McMenamin and non-executive director Philip Dalidakis.
Operating across Australia and New Zealand, TriSecOps will have offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland containing a team of 20 cyber security specialists.
These will have expertise across advice and tactical support, risk identification and mitigation, plus cyber security awareness and education modules designed for high-growth companies.
The company claims it has already started to attract clients in areas such as telecommunications, transport, property, financial services, technology, education, media and agriculture, in addition to various NSW government departments and organisations.
Davies said the launch was an important milestone for providing cyber security capabilities for clients across the Asia Pacific region through a single point of control and accountability.
“Organisations across the region face continuous cyber threats to their operations," he said. "And yet, most solutions are misaligned with organisational goals, focus solely on defence and compliance, and require multiple suppliers to achieve an outcome – creating initial conditions that can actually expand the overall attack surface."
Davies added that Australia's addressable cyber security market was currently valued at $6 billion.
"We’re bringing a new approach to cyber security that provides real assurance and allows companies to rapidly scale without compromising their cyber integrity," he said.
