Making the cyber sector redundant with Nick Ellsmore

Securing a distracted workforce with Craig Searle
One of our original podcast guests, Craig Searle, returns to discuss how cyber has changed in the few years since we spoke - from navigating the pandemic; awareness of supply chain security issues; to achieving diversity in the workplace.
Craig Searle is the co-founder of Australian cybersecurity consultancy, Hivint, and the security collaboration platform, Security Colony – both of which were acquired by Trustwave, an Optus company, in December 2018.
Craig has over 12 years of experience in the security industry, working in the finance, government, telecommunications and infrastructure sectors. He has been directly responsible for the delivery of a number of strategically-critical security programs for a range of clients, including a $10m PCI DSS compliance program for one of Australia’s leading health insurers, achieving compliance on-time and on budget.

R U OK? with Graeme Cowan
Today is R U OK? day and it seems fitting we revisit my previous episode with Graeme Cowan. Last year, I was fortunate to meet with Graeme Cowan and ask him about his story, ask him about R U OK? day, and talk to him about some resilience activities that cybersecurity leaders can do, given the burnout that can occur in our industry.
As a mental health and resilience author and speaker, and Board Director of R U OK?, Graeme spends his professional life helping people understand just that. Graeme uses his first-hand experience after coming through an experience of extreme burn out to help others appreciate and understand the importance of looking out for themselves, as well as looking out for the people around them.
My goal for my discussion with Graeme was to give you the knowledge to build safe, resilient, and healthy security teams and leaders, but this episode goes so much further than that. It is PACKED full of information, resources and simple, actionable ideas that you can use today immediately to check in not only with your team, but also with yourself.
