Speakers » Andy Prow
Friday 10th October, 12:00pm
As technology gets smarter, the threats to ICT security become more sophisticated, and the issues surrounding privacy grow more complex.
Andy Prow discusses the technology behind the attacks his firm have seen, what to expect down the road, and how to shore up our defences, as organisations and individuals. Drawing from his experience and real-world case-studies in New Zealand and overseas, Prow explores the current state of security, while separating the facts from the fear-mongering, and clarifying the issues that professionals hear about, but don’t always understand.
Andy Prow is the CEO of New Zealand-based IT consulting company, Aura Information Security, which he founded in 2001. Prior to Aura, he worked in software development and technical architecture roles for IBM, Vodafone and Telecom, among others.
Prow graduated from Birmingham University in the UK, with a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science and Software Engineering. Aura has been in the Deloitte NZ Fast 50 and the Deloitte APAC Tech Fast 500 for three consecutive years.
