25 March 2019 – In an age where cybercrimes, online fraud and identity theft are ever-present concerns, how can you make sure your
business and customers are staying safe? PwC Herald Talks is tackling the topic of Cyber Security in the first 2019
talk, on Thursday 11 April.
After five sell-out events in Auckland last year, PwC Herald Talks is moving to a bigger venue with plenty of space to
network and host your clients - the Victory Convention Centre.
Hear from keynote speaker Colin James, who heads up Cyber Security across the Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific
(AMAP) regions for Vodafone Group. James will draw on over 25 years of experience, having started his career with the
Royal New Zealand Airforce in air accident investigation. He is now responsible for ensuring Vodafone markets in the
AMAP region are prepared to navigate the future threat landscape, while providing a safe and connected experience for
their global customer base.
James comments, “By 2025, it is predicted that 50% of internet traffic coming from a home will not be generated by
humans, and with 5G coming, the potential for increased cybercrime is a real risk. There’s no such thing as being at the
bottom of the world when it comes to cyber.”
Following the keynote will be an IT security savvy panel, with discussion around managing incidents if they occur, the
role employees play in the control of cyber-attacks and what businesses need to prepare for to navigate future threats.
The panel will include Kendra Ross – Cyber Security Entrepreneur; Adrian van Hest – Partner and Cyber Leader, PwC New
Zealand; Laura Bell – CEO, SafeStack; and Stephen Kraemer – Chief Information Security Officer, Ports of Auckland. To
find out more about the panelists, be sure to check out the PwC Herald Talks website.
Shayne Currie, Managing Editor of the New Zealand Herald, stresses the importance of being cyber security savvy in the
present age. “Data privacy is such a crucial aspect to any business operating in the digital age. It can’t be ignored
and as technology and connectivity evolve, so will the ways cyber-attacks occur. This PwC Herald Talk at the Victory
Convention Centre is not to be missed.”
The Herald’s Head of Business, Fran O’Sullivan, will serve as panel adjudicator, and TV personality and journalist Simon
Dallow will MC.
PwC Herald Talks would not be possible without the support of our proud partners; PwC, The NZ Herald, Massey University,
ATEED, Corporate Travel Management, MYOB
Nood and YUDU.
